    Default Just replaced DD with a robot!

    Hehehehe!
    DD is nearing 12 and earns her pocket money via chores. The same as I did. Work = money, not parents = money.... However she is nearing 12 in age and 16 in attitude and slackness at times so I did it! I bought a robot vacuum cleaner!
    It is actually pretty darn good, at any rate I don't have to listen to it moan and groan, slam things around AND I can walk on the ground afterwards and not get bits of missed who knows what on my feet! I like him, We have named him Geeves.
    Now to get a robot to do the dishes, ironing and wash the windows and I will be one content woman.
    What would you get a robot to do if you could?

    Ummm... Everything lol
    I have two teens and they have jobs to do daily for pocket money but there is still heaps left for me to do. Washing, hanging, folding is my most hated next to cooking and shopping.

    Just the picking up of all the little things.

    I can handle the vacuuming, washing, folding, cooking etc but the loose bits of paper, broken arm of a transformer drive me mental!

    We got one of those Robo vacuum cleaner things! At this stage though my girls fight over who gets to vacuum the carpet. So most of the times they do it, hence the robot is safely in the box in the cupboard.

    Does yours mop/wash the floor as well?

    I can not stand hanging the washing out and the line is not adjustable so the kids can't do it yet so I would love a robot that hung my washing out.

    Also cooking family meals!!

    How cool! How do they actually work? Do you set them off and they work constantly, or what? Do they navigate themselves from room to room? I assume you charge them up periodically, how long do they last before being recharged? Do you have pets, and do they freak out? Especially dogs...

    I'd get a toilet cleaning robot!!

    Geeves has a mop attachment, but I doubt I would use a mop function. I don't mind a quick mop. Just press start and it plots out it's course of the house cell by cell. Heads back to base when it needs a recharge and if it hasn't finished when it is recharged goes back and finishes the job. My dog barked at it yesterday, but was fine today...
    Pretty easy to empty too, it lets you know if it is full by talking to you. As opposed to my daughter banging the head of the vacuum on the floor muttering about the "stoopid thing" not picking anything up anymore.
