It beats crawling into the washing machine

I'll admit it: I was starting to get worried that science would not be able to develop a suit that you could wear in the shower during my lifetime. Oh, me of little faith! Apparently, scientists in Australia have cracked the shower-suit code. And here I thought everyone down there just wore khakis.

According to Ananova.com, the suit can be "cleaned under the shower head with no soaking, dry cleaning -- or even soap." But, you ask, who could possibly need such an item?
Australian Wool Innovation says it has already received 170,000 orders from Japan for its revolutionary shower suit.
OK, memo to the Japanese: Take a day off to do some laundry, for crying out loud! You're far enough ahead of us already.
