Whose idea was it to use the special melamine foam as a cleaning pad?

Category(ies): Cleaning, MelaminPlusPad
The company haid-tec from Rottenacker, Germany was the first to implement these newly developed pads as a cleaning solution for porcelain stoneware. Here the challenge was to remove a layer of grey fog, that had formed on the surface of the porcelain stoneware flooring, particularly as a result of using inappropriate cleaning products.
