No more excuses: Now you can wash Legos

Bosch makes a Lego-safe dishwasher

Lego dishwasher

We couldn't agree with Slashgear more on this one: As any parent knows, kids are filthy. They are sand-eating, dirt-grubbing bacterial magnets.

Despite the universality of this fact, we're still surprised that, of all companies, Bosch gets it. We just couldn't envision its black-turtlenecked German designers surrounded by germ-infested toddlers. But at least some people at the high-end company must understand what rug rodents are about, because they designed this Lego-safe dishwasher that can clean the toy bricks without melting them into plastic blobs. And because it's Bosch, we're relieved to say, the appliances won't look like this.
