This time, let’s think about something completely mundane. Everyone has to do it, and I think there’s room for it to be a lot less onerous, more environmentally friendly, more fun and more fairly distributed.

Whether you have an idea for a service that takes care of chores, delivers household goods or performs certain tasks; whether you have a clever way of doing the dishes that takes less time or a special system for getting the housework done; whether you’ve got a way to divide up or incentivise tasks so that the kids practically beg to get involved… or whether it’s an idea for grass-stain resistant kids clothes or compostable underwear that saves you laundry time – let’s hear it.

What are your ideas for housework-type chores?

But to make things easier for people who DO want to pick up any of the ideas here and run with them on a commercial basis – you have permission, so long as you ensure that you cut the person whose idea it is in for ONE PERCENT (1%). That’s only fair.  
Look forward to seeing your ideas in the comments…
