Sunny Coast mum goes big with Bunnings Warehouse

Christmas has come early for local Sunshine Coast mum of three Kelly Lavery with another ‘pinch me’ moment for her innovative Strucket that is now stocked at Bunnings Warehouse nationwide.

The Strucket is the world’s first strainer meet bucket and has won the hearts of families across the country by modernising the way they soak, separate and drain with a design that ensures that touching dirty water is a thing of the past.

And the good news is, now you can pick one up from your local Bunnings Warehouse.

With over 100 uses and counting the Strucket was originally created out of a moment of desperation, Lavery searched far and wide for a product that would allow no-touch soaking of laundry items but couldn’t find anything like it.

And so the Strucket was born.

“Putting my hand in a bucket of soaking nappies was like putting it in a dirty toilet! I hated it and wanted a better way… when there wasn’t one, I created the Strucket,” Lavery said.

“It’s quite a surreal feeling knowing that the store that I originally went to in search of a Strucket some six years ago, now stocks the Strucket on their shelves.”

What is the Strucket?

Invented by an Australian mum, for Australian families you can soak, separate, and drain with this genius, world-first laundry saviour.

And for those with sensitive skin, there’s no more worrying about getting chemicals on your hands – it’s all hands-free.

The Strucket is designed to fit inside your laundry sink and has been built to handle the weight of wet clothes without losing balance.

With the Strucket, it’s never been easier to find time for yourself and now, it’s never been easier to find a Strucket.

You can grab your 19L aqua Strucket from your local Bunnings Warehouse.
