Though other prototypes existed, it took a woman's common sense to create a dishwasher that actually cleaned the dishes. Cochran's design was the first that used water pressure rather than scrubbers to remove debris.

While these days there are few jobs out there that are strictly for men or strictly for women, when it comes to chores, it seems things still basically maintain gender lines.

According to SWNS Digital, A new survey finds, 60% of men and women say they have “set” chores that are their responsibility in the home. That’s even though 74% of people think it’s outdated to have “pink and blue jobs” around the house, meaning some only the women do, and some only the men do.

Not surprising, typical female chores still include:

    • Cooking
    • Dusting
    • Vacuuming
  • While typical male chores include:
    • Washing the car
    • Unclogging drains
    • Replacing light bulbs

Men are more likely to be mowing the lawn, but that’s a little more evenly split, with the men taking that gig in about 54% of households. 25% of men admit their female partner does most of the chores. The survey notes that women are also likely to think about their chores “a lot” more than men.

SWNS goes on to report that men and women are very different in how they go about their chores as well. 62% of women think ahead about what needs to get done, and 58% aren’t able to relax until they are finished. Meanwhile, 49% of men don’t usually take care of their jobs unless they can visibly see they need to get done.
