Hundred-year cleaning. Hoover Vacuum Cleaner History



If you type in "Google Translator" the word "hoover", it will pop up its only meaning in English - "vacuum cleaner". There is nothing to be surprised. A rare manufacturer of household appliances can boast of such a long and interesting history. Why did the Hoover brand become a household name?

Homemade from Ohio

Combine the mechanical brush for cleaning and the flow of air for the first time guessed the British. Industrial design historian Carroll Ganz, in the pages of The Vacuum Cleaner: A History, reports that back in 1850, London companies provided services for blowing dust through windows using steam and hand machines. So cumbersome that they were brought to the buildings in a horse-drawn carriage — such units were in demand right up to the beginning of the 20th century. But as soon as the invention crossed the ocean, how energetic Americans set about improving it. The design was improved so that it could be easily used by one person. In other words, adapted for domestic use.

In the summer of 1860, Iowa resident Daniel Hess issued a patent for a compact device made of a movable brush and furs akin to the accordion - the dust drawn by them was deposited inside the water tank. This design did not earn loud fame, but the first step was hard times. In 1869, Aivis McGuffy from Chicago realized that a simple fan was also capable of providing the difference in pressure needed to absorb garbage. Only it was suggested to set it in motion on its own: the faster the user rotated the belt drive, the more actively the device worked. They demanded 25 dollars for such a “simulator” - for those times a large amount.

Later, McGuffy tried to improve the apparatus by transferring it to steam traction, and at the turn of the century, he proposed an electric model. But both initiatives were less successful. Do not think that the development of a vacuum cleaner at the time was engaged in only one person. There was also John Thorman from Missouri with a “carpet renovator,” Melville Bissel from Michigan invented his “mechanical brush”, and Corrin Dufort from Georgia - “dust collector”. Sometimes successful ideas came from where they did not expect - from talented self-taught people who just wanted to come up with something useful. One of these was James Murray Spangler.

Hoover Vacuum Cleaner

Thanks to the invention of Spengler vertical vacuum cleaners have become fashionable in the US

He started with agriculture - he invented a combine harvester and several upgrades to it. Then the attention of James attracted fashionable bikes at the end of the XIX century. To make deals with the manufacturer of bikes, he moved to Ohio, where he got a job as a cleaner at the store of the entrepreneur William Zollinger. Spangler found himself in an unenviable position: the patents he had never enriched the author - and now he, at the age of 59, and even asthma, was busy in the dust from morning to evening.

But even in this situation, the American did not lose his head. He suspected that the reason for his cough was the imperfection of the mechanical brush, which he was given at work. The machine would rather raise dust into the air than clean it. Spengler decided to remake the construction: he took the Bissell brush, the motor from the sewing machine, the wooden soapbox, the bag from the pillowcase and put everything on the handle from the broomstick. The result was a vacuum cleaner, as we would say right now, with vertical parking - and this is convenient to use, and it does not take up much space.


It sounds simple, but in fact, the assembly of the device took about six months.

But the design turned out to be simple and cheap - in 1908, when Spangler received a patent, in the United States James Kirby's electric vacuum cleaners were already running, only they cost from $85. A simple Ohio cleaner offered an option available to everyone. Without losing time, the inventor borrowed money and opened the company Electric Suction Sweeper Company, where he collected his devices in small batches. But I quickly realized that without proper advertising and a customer base, it would be impossible to get rich. Then he turned to Cousin Susan for help, because her husband was an experienced businessman and leather merchant William Hoover.

Battle of the living rooms and Europe

In 1908, Hoover’s revenues began to fall: Americans suddenly decided that a car was better than a horse, so harness was less and less in demand. Vacuum cleaners are another matter. Having seized upon this idea, William bought a patent from a relative and opened a small workshop for assembling new devices in a leather workshop. They produced only six cars a day, but they also sold by themselves. The head of the company came to the conclusion that it is necessary to radically change the approach to advertising.

He came up with an economical and at the same time an effective way of selling goods. Placed on the pages of The Saturday Evening Post announcement, offering everyone who wants to free to use a vacuum cleaner for ten days. Who liked the equipment, could buy it, and the disgruntled returned the goods? The venture worked: by 1912, the business embraced not only the United States but also other countries, including pre-revolutionary Russia. It became clear that the promotion of products through the press opened up tremendous opportunities. “Give her a Hoover for Christmas in 1917,” “To be honest, this cleaner is even better than what is needed in most homes,” the newspapers were full of catchy slogans.

And the business flourished. In 1915, the company was renamed Hoover Suction Sweeper to emphasize the merit of William Hoover in winning the market. The boss is not only skilled in advertising but also took care of the introduction of new technologies that were not available to competitors. That is why, under this brand, the first vacuum cleaner with mode switching came out, the 700th model of 1926 was able to clean and knock out the carpet, and in 1930 a compact device for use with one hand appeared - the Dustette. This baby turned out to be incredibly tenacious: some copies were “on the move” even 80 years after graduation. Gradually, the brand became a household name - like a photocopier with us. "Honey, I bought a hover, we will now chuck up the rooms every day. "

The first portable vacuum cleaner

Technical innovations were accompanied by experiments with style. For example, in 1932, you could buy a real headlamp for your “hover” for $ 5, so that it would light up the carpet during cleaning. "Shows the dirt, which you did not know," - said the advertisement. Illumination took root and for a long time served as a hallmark of the brand. In the 1930s, the collaboration of the Hoover Company and industrial designer Henry Dreyfus began. He acted in the spirit of his time: America was overwhelmed by fashion for everything that was streamlined, which primarily affected the shape of the cars, and then the household appliances.


Dreyfus revised the traditional approach to the design of vacuum cleaners.

If earlier manufacturers boasted of motors and defiantly exposed them above the brushes, now the mechanical part is closed by a drop-like bakelite casing. The development of the style of the model 150 cost $ 25,000, but the investment paid off many times over. After all, in addition to the appearance, the 1936 novelty was technically advanced: a lightweight magnesium case, a bag full indicator for dust, a two-speed motor, a handle height adjustment, and a folding design. It is not surprising that competitors began to copy some parts and materials of the famous vacuum cleaner. In the US, Hoover fought for living rooms with other manufacturers, including Air-Way, Eureka and Royal, and overseas butted with Swedish Electrolux. But in 1941, the battle for Europe acquired a more specific meaning. The Ohio plant was reoriented to parachute stitching and helmets punching.

Hoover Vacuum Cleaner

Based on the design of the 150 models, Henry Dreyfus developed a whole series of backlit vacuum cleaners

Immediately after the victory over Germany and Japan, Hoover celebrated the 30th anniversary of the founding of the company. With the assistance of the same Henry Dreyfus model 27 was released, and in addition to the 25th developed the concept of interchangeable nozzles. The kit was called the Model 25 Cleaning Ensemble. It turned out simple and convenient: during cleaning, an additional hose was connected to the vacuum cleaner, and to it - any tip to choose from. “Cleans everything. Carpets, linoleum, mattresses, clothes, car salons. This is the best method of removing dog hair”, - this is how the 1945 advertisement described the merits of the novelty.

New Horizons

In the middle of the XX century art Nouveau and Neoclassicism, which was inextricably linked design Hoover vacuum cleaners, began to become obsolete. The audience needed new solutions — not only externally, but also constructively. The answer to this challenge was the use of original colors, shapes, materials, and technologies. Metallic and gray gave way to more bright colors of technology. In 1950 St has launched the first "Hoover" with rubberized flexible hose Veriflex — invention not only revolutionary but and more reliable, than rag braid. A spherical model Constellation 1954, without wheels, moved on an air cushion.

Three years later, Henry Dreyfus completed the last order for Hoover and switched to other areas, but this did not stop the creative search within the company. The next important decision was the location of the motor behind the dust collector, and not in front of it - this is how the Dial-A-Matic vertical vacuum cleaner, launched in 1963, was arranged. The idea was simple: if in the previous constructions the dust first passed the fan and only then it settled in the bag, now the blades blew out clean air.


Until now, vacuum cleaners of different brands use the same principle: the motor is behind the dust collector, and not in front of it.

Engineers of the company did not forget about the previous developments. So, in a portable Hoover Pixie, the Dustette idea was developed: the device could be worn around the house, slung over a shoulder strap, and used four tips for cleaning. And in Hoover Portable, Pixie compactness and motor layout from Dial-A-Matic were combined. In the summer of 1969, they released the model 1170 with the “self-propelled” Powerdrive system. To roll such a vacuum cleaner in the off state, it took an effort, but it was enough to start the engine, as a special mechanism made the movement of the machine easy.

In parallel, the manufacturer has adjusted the release of other equipment. In the 60s, a round red logo flaunted on toasters, electric knife, blenders, mixers, kettles, irons, washing machines, refrigerators — on a variety of household items. The company, which once produced six vacuum cleaners a day, turned into a huge company with branches in the USA, Canada, Australia, and the UK.

Thanks for a good deal. As early as 1993, the Hoover Trading and Hoover UK divisions merged into the Hoover European Appliances Group. Two years later, the group was acquired by Candy, the Italian company of the Fumagalli family, known for the household appliances assortment. New business owners received the right to use the brand "Hoover" in the countries of the former USSR, and at the same time set up the production of washing machines in Kirov. Now and vacuum cleaners with vertical parking, which are consistently associated with the American style, are sold here. Among modern models, there is a wireless Hoover Rhapsody with two motors: one ensures the suction of dust and the other cleans the filter. Another successor to the traditions of the famous brand is the maneuverable Hoover H-FREE.

      Square Enix published a translation of the session of answers to investors ' questions about its financial results in the first half of the current fiscal year. Chief Executive Yosuke Matsuda confirmed that sales of "The Avengers" were below expectations and that the action role-playing movie has not yet paid off its production budget.

      Earlier it became known that Square Enix sold only 60% of the planned circulation of "The Avengers". It is estimated to have a budget of between $170 million to $190 million, with initial sales of only about 3 million copies. Because of this, the company's HD division lost approximately $ 62 million in the second quarter.
      Matsuda noted that if The Avengers hadn't been released last quarter, the HD division would have remained in the black. However, the losses were caused not only by the non-recouped development costs, but also by the marketing campaign, which suffered due to delays caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
      That being said, Square Enix still intends to make it profitable with post-release support. Last week, the developers announced that Kate Bishop will appear in The Avengers on December 8th.

      Flax seeds are an amazing superfood that combines a huge variety of different nutrients and is useful for all body systems. Even in ancient Greece, a decoction of Flaxseed was used as an anti-inflammatory agent, and for more than two thousand years, doctors have strongly recommended adding it to the diet. What is so useful flax seeds and how best to use them in food, we tell in our material.

      What are the benefits of flax seeds?
      Flax seeds contain the plant compound linamarin - it evenly envelops the walls of the stomach, creating a protective film on it that prevents harmful toxins from being absorbed, and protects the stomach mucosa from ulcers and gastritis. In addition, the high concentration of omega-3 and -6 fatty acids in flaxseed significantly increases the elasticity of blood vessels and heart muscle, strengthens them, and helps in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases. Even if you don't have heart problems right now, regular consumption of flax seeds reduces the risk of them appearing in the future.

      Flaxseed is a source of antioxidant compounds. They protect body cells from free radical damage and have powerful anti-inflammatory effects. Antioxidants are the real elixir of youth: they nourish the skin from the inside, prevent the signs of aging and hyperpigmentation and protect the skin from the harmful effects of ultraviolet rays.
      Flax seeds are rich in magnesium and phosphorus, which are essential for the proper functioning of the brain and nervous system. They increase concentration and performance and improve memory. A number of active substances in flaxseed strengthen bones, muscles, and tendons, prevent respiratory diseases, and restore the acid-base balance of the body.
      What's more, flax seeds are essential in your diet if you are looking to lose weight. They help burn visceral fat, and due to their high nutritional value, they provide long-term satiety and significantly reduce the risk of overeating.

      How to add flax seeds to your diet?
      The most important thing: it is useless to add whole flax seeds to food - the hard shell of the seed is beyond the strength of our stomach, which means that not a single nutrient will be absorbed by the body. The seeds can be crushed, or they can be soaked in warm water for 1-2 hours (then the shell will become soft and easily digested, and useful substances will enter the body).

      Further, in chopped or soaked form, flax can be added anywhere - here you are limited only by your imagination. Flax seeds are a great addition to your morning porridge, smoothie, or avocado toast. They can be sprinkled on salads, vegetables, and meat dishes, added to cream soups and stews.

In Turkmenistan, the bride has always tried to protect from evil forces not only melodic sounds, but also a variety of amulets, such as braids of camel hair, pig teeth, and even on the hands of the bride wore protective bracelets. Thus, the wedding dress could weigh up to 40 kg.

It is mandatory to visit the "Eternal flame", where they lay flowers, leave coins and finally released into the sky pigeons. This is done for family happiness. For Europeans, this is also a common thing.

      It is no secret that the Caucasian holidays fascinate with their beauty, a large number of guests, beautiful dresses and a rich table. Gaumarjos – traditional Georgian wedding is currently held in compliance with ancient rules, although modern innovations have made their adjustments. The article will tell about how the newlyweds are now welcoming guests in this country.
      Old national customs and traditions
      It is now the Georgian wedding is preceded by an acquaintance of the future spouses. It used to be a custom when the groom stole his future wife. He may not have disappeared now and is still practising in distant mountain villages.
      To the parents of the girl almost never came back because her honor has been desecrated. In order not to cause discontent of neighbors and numerous relatives, parents had to take this step. Often women committed suicide because of unwillingness to marry the unloved. Of course, there are many cases when there was a strong and friendly family.
      Georgians are very hospitable people. On such a great holiday is still accepted to invite all relatives from the bride and groom. It is polite to accept. This causes offense, and can even put in a special book the names of people who did not share the joy of the family. That is why, following the tradition, Georgian wedding gathers a huge number of people.
      After the wedding night, the mother-in-law took out a sheet from a bed of newlyweds to prove chastity of the daughter-in-law. If the girl was not a virgin, she was thrown out in disgrace.
      On the wedding table, young put only sweets that none of the guests did see how the wife eats.
      Previously, the holiday, when a new family was formed, was celebrated only in the house of the bride or groom. Despite the fact that now a lot of European learned in the celebration, a lot of rituals left. But about them in order.
      This is the Georgian name for the first stage – matchmaking. Of course, now young themselves meet and choose a mate, but without the approval of the parents will not be a ceremony. There are exceptions, but children try to educate so that they listen to the opinion of elders.
      Here the rites of Georgian wedding are not much different from Russian. The groom must come to the bride's house with relatives to ask for her hand. The girl's parents meet matchmakers with a magnificent feast, during which the young man's side praises him. They should list all the positive aspects.

      Everyone is waiting for the appearance of the bride, who must give their consent to marry. And with a positive answer, the feast continues. Often even neighbors are involved in this process.
      Then the holiday is moved to the house of the future husband, where the table is also laid.
      As well as the Georgian wedding, preparation takes place to some days. It's time to get engaged to a young man and a girl.
      Taking with them a lot of gifts (it may even be just flowers, an expensive bottle of cognac and sweets), the groom's parents with him again visit the bride's house. On the table should be national dishes and a lot of wine, which should not end until the matchmakers at a party. Therefore, they are stocked in advance.
      Men and women before the feast are divided, discuss various topics. And now the guy is sitting next to his beloved. Everyone is waiting for the groom's father to stand up and make his toast, in which he will Express the joy of the upcoming kinship with the bride's parents. Only then will be presented with a beautiful ring future wife (sometimes a family heirloom, which passes from generation to generation). The fun doesn't end there. No one should be left out.
      During the talks, the financial and organizational aspects will be touched upon. Discuss the wedding venue. More often, almost everything has to pay for the groom's side.
      When the matchmakers gather, they are given khachapuri and various sweets.
      Bridal clothes
      Buying clothes also occurs according to tradition. So, for the Georgian wedding, the future husband buys beautiful clothes for the girl.
      The outfit should consist of two parts. A shirt with a collar is worn down. He shows modesty and innocence. From above there is a black or light-colored dress, which according to tradition should be richly embroidered, the sleeves have deep cuts. Bride necessarily girdled. Girlfriends braided a braid and put on a headdress with a veil - chikhti-mines or mandilias. The neck can be decorated with a beautiful necklace and pearl thread.

      The groom had previously picked up the outfit (us to make a chokha) bride. It consisted of a white shirt with a stand-up collar. On top was dark or light shade cloak, embroidered with gold, with satin lining. The groom was belted and unarmed. On feet - leather boots.

      Bride price
      This before the groom had to buy a bride, giving her parents livestock. Now it can be simple gifts that have prepared matchmakers for future relatives, and the ransom is more entertaining. It all depends on the well-being of the family.
      Since all the girls live in their parents ' house before the wedding, this ceremony takes place there. But in many areas of Georgia before the grooms could come and even live with the bride after the engagement.
      The bribery has always been modesty, chastity. It must be docile and, of course, economic.
      The time comes for the next stage - a beautiful Georgian wedding.
      First, the young undergo a mandatory ceremony – wedding. Previously, it was considered even more important than the stamp in the passport.
      It is from this moment that the Georgian wedding begins. In Georgia, very beautiful churches, and in the days of marriage, there is no squeeze. At the exit of the newlyweds will have to wait for a kind of arch, which are made of daggers friends of the groom. So they give protection to a new cell of society

      Then everyone goes to the registrar to legitimize their relationship. Now they began to often divide two events for two days.
      Then it is accepted by the whole tuple to drive through the streets, waving their arms. The horn sound is heard for several kilometers. So husband and wife share their happiness.
      Inspection of the new home
      After a traditional photo shoot, the guy takes his chosen one to get acquainted with his house.
      Before entering the obligatory rite - the young break the most beautiful plate for good luck. After the groom has to climb on the roof to set free the white bird.
      Wine is served. The first glass handed to her husband. Wife is at home, scattering at the corners of the grain of different cereals. Is considered, that this will bring in home wealth, and in the family - progeny. The symbol of the hearth is the cauldron, and the girl always touches it. Relatives put a pot of oil, around which she will walk three times.
      Wooden ornaments, which are presented to the young, represent the Tree of life. To kiss her husband, in the future, all you could hear was the sweet sayings, wife lubricate lips with honey.
      Followed by glasses of wine, the young say their vows. The groom throws the ring into his wine glass, takes a SIP, gives the bride to drink and puts this sign of marriage on the hand of his wife.
      This solemn part is completed.
      So called the feast itself at the Georgian wedding. Photos confirm the grandeur of the celebration, which can last for a week.
      Now because of a large number of guests remove expensive restaurants. The toastmaster is usually chosen from relatives. If the wedding tables are separated, then each entertain guests help assistants (friends of the groom). No one should get bored.

      On the tables are the most delicious treats. From aromas of ketupat, shish kebabs, eggplants simply reduce a stomach. Anyone would like to go to such a table. Such a variety of treats is not common:
      chikhirtma and tolma; satsivi and kuchmachi; ajapsandal and kababi; a lot of greens; various cheeses; vegetables and fruits; sweets. The main dish at the wedding was always soup.
      All tables are filled with traditional Georgian wines and cognacs, which help guests to say wonderful wishes. Every Georgian toast at the wedding for the newlyweds is filled with meaning. You will not hear "Bitterly!".

      Before leaving, the couple cut the cake, holding the knife with both hands. And the first piece of the groom carries the most respected guest.
      They even have something like a contest "Who will sit at the table longer?". Some families manage to celebrate until the morning. Hashi is waiting for them in the morning. This broth is specially cooked on the second day of beef stomachs and legs with garlic. They say it's a great hangover cure. After all, there are still a few days.
      Dancing and gifts
      All evening live music sounds and, of course, dancing begins. If the young invited professional dancers, it will be an amazing sight. We have all seen the graceful movements of girls and perfectly honed movements of these horsemen. Each wave of the hand or look has its own meaning.

      The bride should only dance with the groom or close relatives. But there comes a time when she performs her Georgian dance at the wedding, circling around the hall. Her guests give her money, which she manages at her discretion. Everyone is accepted to rejoice and dance. Also at the wedding in Georgia always heard folk songs.
      Give in celebration, the newlyweds decided expensive gifts. They must be signed. After the couple, opening gifts, special family record book, who and what gave. This is done in order to make a better purchase for the wedding of relatives. The most generous is even entered as honored guests of their home.
