Office chair with wheels

I have started to use the office chair from my computer area to sit in when I unload the dishwasher and when I sort laundry. That way I don't have to squat or stay bent over. I can just scoot the chair back and forth to move things from one area to another. At first I thought I was just being lazy but I have less pain doing things this way and I don't get as tired. I hate the idea that loading and unloading the dishwasher wipes me out,but that's how it is.

I like your idea. I use a step stool to sit and use my front-loading washer/dryer. Bending over, and especially squating, are hard on us.

NICE IDEA!

My kitchen chairs are on wheels and my husband used it to help clean the frisge...and then I took the idea. You are at just the right height to SEE what you need and little bending involved.

OH thank you for a new tool for the fmily......good idea for us to try as well.

Thanks again.....Nancy B
