According to research conducted by Whirlpool Corporation, 44 percent of the U.S. population or more than 50 million people are primarily responsible for laundry in their household. Whether we are worried no one else knows how to do the laundry or we don't trust others to do laundry the way we would, we could all use a little help in the laundry room.
