Too lazy to sort out the washing at home? Fear no more - a new development in the industry will allow a person to let the wash basket do it for them.
Electrolux has announced its iBasket, a container to store dirty clothes in and, when it is full, sensors will activate and a person's socks
will be cleaned automatically, the Times has revealed.
It explained: "Once the wash cycle is complete, it sends you an e-mail. 2,000 years of civilisation have been leading up to this. Oh, and the target market is - surprise surprise - young males."
Electrolux is now the global leader in home appliances, selling over 40 million products to customers in 150 markets across the world, including those under the Zanussi and Kelvinator brands.
