Did you know we invented the lint roller?
In 1956, an electrical engineer named Nicholas McKay, and his wife, Helen, were scheduled to chaperone a college dance. McKay had forgot to take his clothes to the dry cleaner so he wrapped some masking tape around an empty toilet paper tube, rigged a wire handle to form a roller, and conveniently removed lint from his tuxedo.
The lint roller was born.
The next day, he and his wife established Helmac, which, in the year 2000, became Evercare.
