We love bathtime as much as the next guy, but we usually tend to run a fresh tub full of water before we turn on a podcast and settle in. Well apparently in Japan, bath water is a precious commodity that is passed on from generation to generation, and bathtime isn't used for cleaning, but for relaxation, so we're kind of glad to know that Japanese households have an option like this Electronic Bath Water Cleaner to keep that special liquid fresh and sparkly. The unit can run through 10 liters of water a minute and sells for around $425.
