Ask anyone what is the most dreadful household chore they have to do, and unanimously we hear, it’s the Laundry! Washing dishes comes a close second, but we’ll deal with that later.

9) Dismount Washer by Lichen Guo

The iBasket is a hamper, washer and dryer rolled into one. Essentially you just need to keep piling your clothes into the basket till its fully loaded.
