What’s your laundry detergent format of choice? If you’re a powder kind of person, you’ll be familiar with the small plastic scoops that come in every box. The problem with those plastic scoops is just that: they’re plastic, and they come in every box.
With one of those ‘why hasn’t someone thought of that before?’ ideas, designers Yang Guo, Qiaoge Yang and Wenju Wu have come up with a concept for detergent packaging with a tear-off scoop spoon. (Tear-iffic spot, Damo.)
The top of each package is perforated to tear into a handle, with one corner of the bag – the bit you’d rip off anyway – open to form a ladle-like scoop. Best of all, it’s shaped to pick up the exact amount of detergent you need. How smart is that?
