89 Gadgets That Make Household Chores Easy

From Robotic Lawn Mowers to Sack-Sealing Rubbish Bins

— November 20, 2013 — Art & Design
Maintaining a house that is nice and clean is easy with devices that make household chores easy, since these gadgets are like having your very own Rosie robot from the Jetsons to do all the work for you. One of the best parts about having assistance from an automated gadget is that they don't complain like your spouse or kids do.

These hi-tech cleaning tools are happy to do their duties, whether it's automatically mowing the lawn or helping you to do your laundry from your smartphone.

Devices like these help to free up your own time and energy, so that you can spend more of your own time having fun and making messes, without having to worry that cleaning up afterwards is going to be a real chore.
