    Soap is the most useful, i could go on and on but you only ask for one.

    Toilets and sinks are very useful, so are refrigerators and ovens.  . . If you are asking beyond the basic . . . everyone needs a good dog.

      I do think I could live in a house that did not have a toilet.

    The hair dryer is very useful for drying hair, and it can be used on frozen pipes in the wintertime to unthaw them, in case they get frozen.

    Water, I use it to wash, to drink to cook . You can even use it to cool and to heat.

    The kitchen timer.  I use it constantly for timing everything, in the kitchen and out, and for a reminder to do things, although when it goes off, sometimes I've forgotten what I was suppoed to do!

    It's definitely the microwave. Theres no reason to cook with anything else.

    The prayer room is most useful room for the balancing mind and to start the day with a positive belief in  our spirit - mind wise.
    Then the list of most important things....i would say Tooth brush and tooth paste...for me...lol ...as i don feel liking even looking at myself without the uses of this in the early mornings - its physically.
    good question.

    A sink. I was going to answer toilet but then thought that you can do more with a sink. You can clean all sorts of things (including babies), prepare food and obtain water from it. Heck if you have a garbage disposal you can add that to the list too. ^_^

    Given my name you'd think I'd say something in my bathroom lol, but no it's most likely my oven. It fufills my basic need to eat and I would be a bit lost without it!

    Beyond the basics though it's probably my PC. I'm not sure how I'd cope without the Internet these days!

    Difficult, but I think my dish washer or my washing machine.
    Must not think about doing it all by hand!

    As far as things actually attached to the house - a shower/tub. I considered a sink, but you can get all of the sink uses with a shower, plus you can bathe yourself.

    If it's what I bring into a home, I love my Dr. Bronner's, which is an 18-in-1 soap. (I'm not very brand loyal, I just like how you can use this highly concentrated liquid to do everything from laundry to cleaning to brushing your teeth.)

      I enjoyed that answer because I love my tub and it is attached to the house.

    I asked that to me wife and she simply said "the bed", an answer that perked my ears. But hold on, and before you get any funny ideas, she added because you can sleep in the bed as long as you like.

      She was making a joke!!  Yes the bed is used at least eight hours a day and most people have one in their house, I believe.

    A coffee pot because without one I'd be totally useless myself. I got to have that one strong cup of morning brew to get me started for the day.

    I think the most useful gadget I own is a little razorblade scraper. I got it for my smooth top range but I use it for practically everything! I scrape things out of my stainless steel cookware with it, I have used it for gooey messes on the glass refridgerator shelves, I have scraped dough off the countertops and baked on messes off my cookie sheets(Do not use on nonstick coatings). I even use it to scrape baked on lasagne out of my glass baking dish!
