Portable Dishwashers http://products.how...hwasher-reviews.htm

       Portable dishwashers are not a new invention, [21Q]. <link> Rather than resorting to truck-mounted cleaning equipment a portable unit could be temporarily installed in the client's own kitchen or laundry/utility area. But a service to perform that chore on a door-to-door basis does seem novel and enterprising to me, not unlike the neighborhood kids who used to provide local lawn and gardening services after school and on weekends. I suspect this business might fare best in densely occupied pre-War high-rise apartment buildings (which are least likely to already have built-in dishwashers) with elevators (so that the Serviceman doesn't have to lug his machine up and down flights of stairs).

       If it worked like "office water coolers", then that would be a monthly equipment leasing business with additional consumable product sales. Presumably, [Voice]'s customers like to have their dishware cleaned on a more frequent and regular basis, which makes this a daily (or other agreed interval) route service business, and the equipment is not leased or rented.

       A brilliant business plan that needs not a word more of detail. Door to door dish washing service +

       There could also be a mail-order version.
