Washing machine 'the best time-saving invention ever'

world Updated: Apr 11, 2011 12:12 IST

It's what most women would agree to -- washing machine is their favourite time-saving gadgetary invention ever. And for men, it's the computer, says a survey.

Yes, 32 % women have voted the washing machine as the best time-saving invention ever while blokes chose the computer in the survey by Internet service provider Hotmail.

The mobile phone came in third overall -- a plus for both sexes -- followed by the dishwasher and the microwave, the Daily Express reported.

A watch that freezes time was voted the ultimate time-saver of the future in the survey, while a Hairwush emerged as another exciting time-saving invention.

The Hairwush, designed to wash, condition, dry and brush your hair in one go, was dreamt up by 45-year-old Chloe Eyre of Bedford, who beat 8,000 others for 10,000-pound prize.

She said: "I hate rushing and having to wash, dry and style my hair so I invented something that can do all three in one go."

Other ideas included a calculator that recognises the ingredients in your fridge, then suggests appropriate recipes.
