Title: AUTOMATIC ORDER OF LAUNDRY SUPPLIES
Abstract:
Example implementations relate to the automatic ordering of laundry supplies. For example, an appliance may include a fluid detection sensor to detect an amount of laundry supplies present within the appliance, where the fluid detection sensor is to detect a first level of fluid in a first container in the appliance. The appliance may also include a processor coupled to the fluid detection sensor, where the processor is to compare the first level of the fluid to a predetermined threshold level and automatically send a request to order a new container when the first level of the fluid in the first container reaches the predetermined threshold level and where the request is sent over a network.
