The estimated 95% of men who do the family's dishes when on holiday have been handed a reprieve by Lake District holiday park Skelwith Fold.
That's because the Ambleside business is providing its touring guests with free use of an automatic dishwasher which takes just five minutes to clean and dry a full load.
Specially designed for touring caravan and motorhome users, the super-fast machines have recently become a familiar sight on many parks in mainland Europe.
But Skelwith Fold, according to the Dutch manufacturers Easy Be, is now the first UK park to install the eco-friendly facility for its guests.
It means that the party's official washer-upper can now jettison the J-cloth in favour of a cup of coffee while technology takes over the toil.
