Is 'Google' the first trade name to be now also considered as a verb?
I don't know, I'll go Google it and come back with the answer...Yeah I guess so!
I think "Hoover" might have that one, as in "I'm hoovering the rug in the living room." I would love to hear about some older ones. Anyone?
@Heuchera...what a brilliant comeback...& yes your so right !
I've heard people use Swiffer and Febreeze as verbs...I'm Swiffering the floor or I need to Febreeze my house.
To xerox is one of those old ones, but I am not sure if it is older than to hoover.
