Small pic hassle

If you're reading this, you probably have at least 60 to 70 years of laundry in your future. That's a lot of sorting, washing, drying, folding, and ironing. It's not a stretch to say that laundry can quickly turn into an annoying, joyless hassle. For most people, it's a necessary chore. We want to make it less of a burden.

Millennials, with a lifetime of laundry ahead of them, would appreciate a laundry routine that is less complicated, more convenient, and less time consuming. Consider how the Swiffer line of products made cleaning floors so much easier than using a mop and bucket of soapy water. We want to do that for laundry. Give us your best idea, and don't be afraid to think outside the box!
