We've all struggled to lift a full washing up bowl out the sink and ended up spilling half of its contents on the kitchen floor during the tussle.
But now there's a simple and cheap solution to make the fight a thing of the past - and we never knew we needed it until now.
Home Bargains is selling a washing up bowl with a twist plug on the bottom making it easier than ever to drain out the water, and it's already got rave reviews online.
One happy customer took to the popular Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK group Facebook page, writing: "For those that haven't seen it, this is the best washing up bowl I've ever had.
"I have a condition that causes chronic joint pain, so hard to empty full bowls of water.
"You just twist the drainer and all the water drains out. You can also lift the drainer out to empty all the debris.
"£3.49 Home Bargains."
The plug in the bottom of the bowl twists to allow water through while catching food to stop it clogging up your sink as usual, or it can be removed completely to be quickly drained.
One replied: "This is amazing! I have cerebral palsy so struggle to empty full bowls too. Thank you, will definitely have to get one!"
A second said: "I've had one of these for a few months now and it’s fab!"
A third responded: "It is a good idea as it saves on lots of food waste going down the drain. I will look out for one!"
Another wrote: "That's the best thing I've seen in ages I want one too."
