It's the question that has baffled scholars since the beginning of time – where should your washing machine go?

The internet is the ultimate place of discovery. Gone are the days that we'd actually pick up a book to learn something new. This year alone, the internet has already taught us that not a lot of people wash their legs in the shower, in fact, they don't even wash their feet in there either. Oh, and did you know every woman has an identical freckle on their wrist? Weird…

Now the biggest debate on the net is all about washing machines. It all started way back in 2017 when British people discovered that Americans don't put their washing machines in the kitchen. Instead, our US counterparts have designated laundry rooms where they keep all their washing machines.


This is apparently because a lot of homes in the UK are much older and therefore were not designed with them installed. However, some newer houses have a "utility" room, the equivalent of the Americans' laundry room.

Well, the big debate is now back after another shocking washing machine discovery. Twitter user @biebersgrills revealed that German people actually keep their washing machines in their bathrooms and it kind of makes a lot of sense.

The tweet went viral, opening up yet another online conversation about washing machines. Some Brits were seriously reconsidering that kitchen thing.

It's not just Germans either, other nationalities also keep their washer in the bathroom.

And some were still team kitchen all the way.
