5 Clever Home Appliances That Make Your Chores a Whole Lot Easier


Let’s be real, no one likes doing housework. Chores can take up a lot of valuable time and they’re not exactly fun either. That’s where these clever home appliances come in handy, helping to make your chores a whole lot easier.

Double dishwasher

Dishwashers in and of themselves can be huge helpers in the kitchen, allowing you to chuck your dirty dishes in without worrying about doing any of the work yourself. Double dishwashers like Fisher & Paykel’s DishDrawer take things up another notch, splitting the washing cycles into two separate drawers. This means that you can wash fragile dishes on a delicate cycle in one drawer while running a standard cycle in the other, saving you plenty of time.

Twin washing machine

We’ve established that being able to run two loads of dishes at the same time can be really handy. The same, of course, applies to laundry. If you want to wash some of your clothes on a delicate cycle but also need to urgently get your towels clean, having the option to get both done simultaneously can be a massive relief. A twin washing machine like LG’s TWINWash can easily accomplish this combination for you without taking up any extra space in your service yard.

Vacuum mop

Cleaning the floor usually involves two separate actions: vacuuming and mopping. This can quickly become exhausting as you will have to bend over the floor for an extended period of time, going back and forth. By combining vacuuming and mopping in a single gadget, the Philips SpeedPro Max Aqua allows you to cut this time in half, getting your chores done with just half of the effort and one fuss-free appliance.

Robot vacuum

If vacuuming and mopping in one go still sounds too bothersome, a robot vacuum like EcoVacs’ Deebot might be what you’re looking for. This nifty little appliance quite literally takes the housework off your hands, vacuuming the floor all by itself. Robot vacuums often come kitted out with object detection, allowing them to cleverly move around obstacles, and some even sport built-in video cameras for remote home security.
