Museum of Clean

Cleanliness is nearer to godliness, at least in elevation, at the Museum of Clean, which has expanded to a third floor. 84-year-old museum founder Don Aslett -- a former janitor and successful businessman -- was on hand for the grand opening of the floor, which is exclusively devoted to sweepers and vacuums. One of the machines on display is Aslett's favorite, a professional model used by hotels, but absent from the display is a Roomba, which Aslett says is an inferior vacuum.

Aslett said that the fourth floor, scheduled to open in 2020, will feature washing machines and soap. The fifth floor, to open in 2021, will display devices used in science and medicine, making surfaces so perfectly clean that they're germ-free. "This is not a how-to-clean museum," Aslett told the Idaho State Journal. "It's a be-clean museum."
