If your washing machine is giving you the washday blues, it might be time to upgrade to a new model that can help save you time and effort without compromising on performance. During a time when money is tight for everyone, it is important to find the right machine for you at the right price. This is where the Indesit range of washing machines at ao.com could offer some great options for you and your family.
We look at the plus points of buying a new machine, and how it can improve the laundry experience for the whole family, and even get the kids involved (it’s never too early for passing on some washing wisdom!). By taking advantage of a special offer on free detergent, you can get four months free Ariel with the purchase of selected appliances and save even more.*
In the midst of an energy crisis, we are all looking for ways in which we can use it more efficiently. They range from the simple but effective, such as switching appliances off at the plug rather than leaving them on standby, to the innovative, such as using washing machines with customisable settings, like the specific Eco setting. Choosing an energy-saving cycle reduces the cycle's consumption by running at a lower temperature, helping both the environment and your pocket, while still achieving the same great results. Energy labels have changed now; gone are the old classes from A+++ to D, replaced by a much clearer A to G system. They are also indexed by colour, with green being the most energy efficient.
In days gone by, doing the laundry used to be such a labour intensive task that a whole day was dedicated to doing it. Thankfully, what once took hours can now be done in minutes. It's so easy the whole family can share the chores. For example, with Indesit’s Push & Go (opens in new tab) technology, all you have to do is press and hold the blue button for two seconds and it will run a 45 minute cycle at 30°C, perfect if you are in a hurry. You can even encourage your children to help press it!
When family life becomes busy with activities and lots of changes of clothes are needed – whether it’s school uniforms, play clothes, sports kits or gym gear – it can seem like the washing machine is always on. A machine that can take a bigger load – up to 10kg – could be the solution, cutting an every day wash down to two or three days a week. Fewer washers means less cycles of water and detergent used, too.
It might be considered ironic that a machine designed for cleaning can itself become dirty, however, fabric softeners and detergents can build up inside and round the rim of the washing machine, which attracts bacteria. The result is your clothes come out smelling less than fresh – tempting you to throw them back and wash them again, wasting water and energy. On Indesit's washing machines, you can use the Auto Clean programme to thoroughly cleanse the inside of the machine in just a few minutes. It is run with no load inside, but for maximum effectiveness, you can use a small quantity of detergent or a special additive.
