In case you've never heard of a Strucket before - you wouldn't be the only one, don't worry - it's similar to a colander that fits inside a slightly bigger basket or bucket and it's used for soaking clothes and draining the water out easily as it even features a small tap on the bottom bucket.

The Strucket website describes the product as: "Perfect for sensitive skin, the Strucket allows you to easily soak, separate and drain with our patented, world-first interlocking strainer and plug system.

"Your hands never, ever touch dirty (or smelly) water!"
