Guys, here’s a late Christmas gift suggestion for the Little Woman

 

And flossing!

And flossing!

 “Piccolo” machine serves as a vacuum cleaner, coffee grinder, paint sprayer and more, all in one!”

While millions of Britons clean their homes after the Christmas period a retired couple will be using a 88-year-old hoover which also paints, grinds coffee – and even minces meat.

Mary Waite, 61, and her husband Ivor, 63, have been using their Piccolo multi-purpose appliance since it was given to them as a wedding present in 1976.

Remarkably, the plastic and metal gadget, which does four household chores in one, was built in 1925 but still works today and has never broken down.

It was made by German company Hammelmann Werke in the early 20th century and was promoted as the future of household appliances.
