Who does the laundry in your house? I think I’m pretty lucky that my husband helps… in fact, he might do laundry slightly more than half of the time. We kind of agree that my main job during the day is to focus on the kids – I’m usually playing outside or taking them to do fun activities (yesterday we visited an animal shelter and then out for lunch!) so my duties around the house kinda… don’t… get done.… I get to things when I can though, in a spare minute or during nap time, but some days? The house looks the same as when Steve left that morning. Then he comes home from work and either helps with the kids or helps with the chores. It’s a wonderful man I have, I know
But now.…. we are about to get a brand new washer and dryer. We’ve never had a brand new washer and dryer. Let me think about this a minute… we bought our current set from the backroom at a local store – they didn’t even know how old they were. Before this, we rented, we lived in an apartment where we did laundry with hundreds of other people in the basement, we lived in my parents’ basement and used their washer and dryer, and we did some college living – which included more shared laundry rooms, laundromats, and hideously old and ugly washers and dryers. PHEW!
This is what it’s like now:
But once our new washer and dryer come, I anticipate it will be different. Rainbows and sparkles and glitter, different. “Ryan, mommy is busy doing laundry right now, go play in your room,” different. Washing clothes for fun, different.
Because we are getting the Bravos XL high-efficiency top-load washer and dryer from Maytag. It’s going to be like THIS:
This washer has a PowerWash cycle for the toughest stains, an allergen removal cycle (gets rid of 95% of common household allergens), XL capacity, AND it uses 76% less water and 78% less energy. This dryer has a moisture sensing system (SO COOL), a steam cycle to reduce wrinkles, and it uses 40% less energy when paired with this washer.
This is going to be amazing for our family of 4. I remember back in the good old days when I did my own laundry once a week. Now I do laundry (or Steve does) every single day. Maybe twice a day. Not only do we have lots of clothes for 4 people (and shouldn’t kids count double with all the clothes they go through in a day?), but we also have two in cloth diapers. That’s a LOT of laundry!
So good thing our new washer and dryer are going to make our laundry room all sunshiney and full of sparkles I have GRAND plans for an entire laundry room makeover.… stay tuned!!! Over the next 4 months, I’ll be sharing updates with you about the new washer and dryer from Maytag as one of their #MaytagMoms ambassadors and I couldn’t be more thrilled! Thanks, Maytag and Mom Central!
