Walk Or Dance Your Way To A Cleaner House

A new pair of shoes have been invented that vacuum as you walk.

These vacuum shoes, which makers Electrolux call the Dustmate, have a tiny rechargeable vacuum inside the base.

The shoes are made of green nylon with a flexible rubber sole and elastic sock to fit any foot making it comfortable to wear.

A spokesman for Electrolux said: "We all have to vacuum our home - this product is designed for busy people who want to keep the housework down to a minimum. Dustmate provides a cleaning solution that doesn't take up any precious free time."

"As you walk, the base of the shoes collect dust on the floor without requiring any effort. It is a simple yet creative cleaning concept."

The designers came up with the invention after asking consumers what they wanted and finding that they were just too busy to spend lots of time doing housework.

The next step would be to make your guests wear these shoes as they walk around your house.
