I have many roles in my life….Mom, Wife, Daughter, Friend, Employee, Business Owner, and Blogger to name a few. Admittedly, I am better at some of these than others and I have gradually gotten better at these roles over time. But, there are two roles that seem to be my nemeses, cook and housekeeper, mainly because I don’t strive to be the best at either. I cook and clean out of necessity, but I dread it every.single.time.
I actually envy those that love to experiment in the kitchen and make their homes into works of art. I wonder if I was born without that gene. But, to be honest, since I work outside the home full time, when I get home I want to gobble up my kids and play, play, PLAY! I hate to spend any of my precious evening hours with them in the kitchen or the laundry room. I am always looking for better ways to manage my time or a shortcut to get chores done quickly. So, I am thrilled to announce that I am one of fifty Moms chosen to review the time saving features of the Whirlpool Duet Washer and Dryer!
Before I begin reviewing the set, I thought I should introduce you to my old washer and dryer…….
My husband and I received these as a wedding gift from my in-laws over 11 years ago. They have served us well and even made it through Hurricane Katrina, but they have seen better days. After the Storm, the washer retained a strong sewer-like smell and clothes needed to be run through at least 2 cycles in the dryer. One load of laundry began to take an obsessively long time, so the majority of my weekend was spent chained to the dirty clothes. I was sad to see them go, but got over it rather quickly when our new shiny Whirlpool Duet set appeared…..
Pretty, right? The great thing is that it’s looks aren’t even the best part! This 4.3 cu. ft. front load washer is equipped with Precision Dispense Ultra, a reservoir that holds up to 36 loads worth of HE detergent, which dispenses just the right amount of detergent, fabric softener or bleach at the right time during your cycle. No worries about over-using detergent which saves you money! Another feature I can’t wait to explore? Fan Fresh! No time to switch laundry? The washer has the capability to dry a small load of laundry on its own! Amazing! I can start a small load of laundry before work and have it washed AND dried when I get home? LOVE.
In the coming months, I will share some tips and tricks to using the Whirlpool Duet and how it can simplify your life. Stay tuned!
