The Laundry Rug

To make up for my indescretions yesterday with the RoboDump, I’m here today to present you with a (truly) useful product: The Laundry Rug.

It’s the size of an area rug, and you just toss your clothes onto it (c’mon, you know your floor doubles as a clothes hamper!) and when laundry day comes, just cinch up the sides and you’ve got a bag full of laundry to take to the washing machine/laundromat. It’s genius, folks!

While this company has other, much less inventive products like the Hangover Helper (just an ice/heat pack), the Cosmojetz (what the heck?), and Knob Notes (ok, ok, that one’s not too bad), clearly they’ve hit the big time with the Laundry Rug.

I imagine it’s only a matter of time before Linens-n-Things is carrying it.

At this point chords around the edge of the rug are pulled together to form a handy carry bag

chord

cord

Is this thing musical, or is this one of those British English v. American English divides, like color and colour?

It must be making its rounds... I didn't get it from the same source as him, but I suspect that there's a Kottke or a Haughey behind it all. :)



What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
