So, it hasn’t occurred to me that other autistic people might not know this, so I figured I’d make a post.
Shopping channel stuff.
If there’s household stuff that you struggle with, for whatever reason, you should probably check out the shopping channels.
A lot of the stuff advertised on those channels is designed for various disabilities, it’s just not advertised as such.
Like, I can’t really use sharp knives for cooking. I don’t have the fine motor skills to use them safely.
But my mum bought a Nicer Dicer from the shopping channel, and it completely removes any danger for me.

Of course, it pretty much can’t be hand-washed, and it’s big, so it’s a pain in the dishwasher, but if I can’t get pre-sliced veg, it’s great.
She just bought a new hoover as well that’s a lot more light-weight and maneuverable than the Dyson one we’ve got, and I can finally actually use it with my dyspraxic arms.
Plus it’s quieter, so my headphones block the noise better.
So, yeah, if there’s any household jobs that you really struggle with, there’s probably a shopping channel solution.
