Most people will probably be thankful for anything that makes the chore of washing-up more exciting. For those who have moved from gaming into domesticity, this retro arcade sponge from Urban Outfitters might liven up your task a bit.
The sponge is in the instantly recognisable shape and colour of arcade favourite Pac-Man. As it says on the packaging, use it to munch your way through the dirty dishes.
If you're feeling creative, you could get cutting at your own sponges and recreate the look. For those who prefer someone else to do the dirty work, it costs £6.
