My hubby always makes fun of me when I rave about appliances I love. He says “that’s such a MOM answer- maybe I can get you a vacuum for Christmas!” What he doesn’t realize is that yes, as a mom, appliances ARE important. They simplify my life. The right vacuum makes cleaning up easy. The perfect dishwasher will save me a backache from leaning over a sink. The best washer and dryer will save us money and clean clothes effectively. Appliances are a mommy’s right hand and there is nothing wrong with that.
Before I received my Whirlpool Duet Washer and Dryer, I only had a washing machine. Washing clothes, sheets, towels, and even cloth diapers was a hassle. I had to choose which load was most important to wash that day because I had limited space to hang up the clothes to dry. After receiving my dryer, my entire world changed. I can get laundry done in one day! Yes, I finally have a designate laundry day! Okay, that’s totally a lie, but I can definitely get ALL my laundry done in one day, as opposed to doing a load of laundry everyday. This makes more time for other important things: you know, like raising two kids!
When I was pregnant and unable to make it up and down the stairs with a heavy load of laundry, my hubby started to help out. I loved that I was able to set up preset laundry options for him. All he has to do is turn on the machine, choose what type of laundry he is doing, such as jeans, baby laundry, regular laundry, sheets, or towels. He can even push a button to do a quick 20 minute wash which is great for cleaning something in a pinch.
The precision dispense feature is great- I fill it up every few weeks and the Whirlpool Duet does the rest. It lets out the perfect amount of detergent depending on the weight and type of load. This saves us on detergent and takes the guess work out of measuring for my husband. Along with saving on detergent, we also save water AND energy! This awesome machine uses 83% less water and 85% less energy. Laundry has never been so easy, and everyone in the family can get in on the fun with a machine that simplifies the chore.
Let’s not forget the Duet Dryer. This large capacity dryer is so smart, it can tell when your clothes aren’t dry yet! It starts off with an estimated time, but adjusts depending on how damp your laundry is. The dryer whispers as efficiently dries your clothes.
How do your appliances simplify your life?
