Everyday Self-Clean
Self-cleaning products ease day-to-day routines
Trend–Everyday products that range from litter boxes to pillows are being adapted with "self-cleaning" functions–in the form of advanced antibacterial properties or automated systems.

Insight–Today, consumers are more concerned than ever before about making plans and purchases based on convenience–something they've grown accustomed to since the advent of digital advances, and now expect in all aspects of their lives. Though self-cleaning products would still require upkeep, their longer "shelf life" ensures that consumers are able to make purchase decisions based on long-term convenience.
Workshop Question — How could your brand prioritize convenience in its product experience?
