Choosing a good washing machine is, perhaps, the single best investment a mom can make for her family. Just imagine how it can cut a daunting chore in half or even our dependence on household staff. But it seems we commit some big mistakes when using our washing machines. Here are some of them:
1. Too much mechanical action can cause damage to delicate fabrics and clothes in general.
2. Putting excess detergent so clothes will be cleaner and smelling good leaves residue. This can, again, cause damage to fabrics, aside from being harmful to the environment.
3. Selecting a higher temperature wastes energy and will harm your clothes in the process.
4. Same with using the machine for a longer time to wash clothes. The longer the time, the more energy is wasted, and the higher your electric bill.
During a Samsung event recently, I was acquainted with how high tech and innovative their newest line of ‘smart’ washing machines are. For example,the digital inverter features are worth looking into. The initial cashout maybe higher for these types but one can save money, time and effort in the long term.
Front load washers are generally deemed more efficient. Samsung ups the ante with its Fully Automatic Front Load Washer (model WW5000) that has EcoBubble Technology and a Stain Away Program. EcoBubble completely dissolves and distributes the detergent for easy rinsing, deep fabric penetration and greatly minimizes detergent residue.
Stain Away, on the other hand, is a pre-programmed cycle in the washer that helps remove common, stubborn stains. Blood, coffee, tea, wine, and make-up are just some of them. In the setting, there’s a special bubble soaking stage where frothy bubbles penetrate deep into the clothes’ fibers to loosen dirt and stains.
