Ever found yourself pulling a discoloured jumper out of the washing machine or throwing out clothes because you just can’t remove a stain? We’ve all been there but doing the laundry doesn’t have to be complicated!
Our new range of appliances have been designed to minimise those “oops” moments and make doing the laundry less of a chore.
Here are some tips to increase the lifespan of your clothes with the Westinghouse laundry range.
1. Using less detergent
Contrary to what we’ve been brought up believing, more detergent doesn’t equal cleaner clothes. The reality is that too much detergent will create more suds than you need, making your clothes harder to rinse and clean and leaving residue that damages your garments. If you’re worried about hidden bacteria on your clothes, you don’t need to be. The new EasyCare range features in-built PlusHygiene technology which uses water vapour to neutralise 99.9% of selected common household allergens and bacteria1, ensuring your clothes and washing machine aren’t harbouring any more unwanted bacteria.
1Tested on certain harmful allergens and germs: K. pneumoniae, P. aeruginosa, S. aureus.
2. Set your dryer temperature lower
Everyone loves the feeling of freshly washed and dried garments, straight out of the dryer. But setting the temperature too high on your dryer can cause wear and tear. That’s why the Westinghouse EasyCare Dryers have been designed with the SensorDry function that detects moisture levels in your garments and automatically stops when the desired dryness is achieved. Not only will you protect your items and increase their lifespan, but you’ll save energy too.
3. Don’t overfill the machine
Squashing too many things into the washing machine can lead to items not washing properly, but doing partial laundry loads isn’t energy efficient. If you’re overfilling your machine, it might be time to size-up. Helping make it even easier, we offer a 3XL Door and extra-large opening to make washing big or bulky loads way easier than they used to be. Whether you need the kids’ doona washed before bedtime or a weeks’ worth of laundry done in a day, we’ve got you sorted.
4. Save time by ditching the ironing board
Ever had to rush to dinner and realised your favourite shirt is still sitting crinkled in the dryer? If you’re always running out of time, this nifty technology will change your life. The new range of Westinghouse EasyCare Vented Dryers have an Auto Cool-Down function that reduces wrinkling and leaves your load cool to touch when the program is finished - so you can still wear your outfit of choice, even if it’s only just finished drying.
5. Use quicker, quality wash programs
From running around with the kids to cooking dinner or hosting friends, the laundry is often the last thing on anyone’s mind. Here at Westinghouse, we want to simplify your life and that’s where our time adjustable features come in. In-built time technology including Daily 39, Fast 15 and Save Favourite wash programs deliver the kind of quality wash you expect for light loads in a quicker time, so that you can get back to what’s important - like catching up on your favourite show, or dinner with family and friends.
