Today’s smart and energy-efficient washers and dryers make laundry day a breeze

Stains that won’t budge, whites that emerge pink, your favourite jumper reduced to the size of a postage stamp – we’ve all had our share of laundry dramas. Fortunately, today’s high-tech washers and dryers make them a thing of the past.

“The latest machines can do what they simply couldn’t five or 10 years ago,” says Gary Brown, senior brand manager for home appliances at Harvey Norman. “You can wash fine knits, lace, silk and other items labelled handwash only. You can even freshen up suits and blazers, saving you serious money on dry-cleaning.”

Few of us want to spend our weekends doing endless loads of laundry – something manufacturers are aware of. Washing and drying cycles are getting faster and more energy-efficient, and much of the guesswork has been taken out of the laundering process. “Most research and development in the laundry sector has been around solving customers’ frustrations, such as knowing how much detergent to use, how much to fill a load, choosing the right cycles and the ability to add that stray sock into the machine during the cycle,” says Brown.
