Is a Washer/Dryer Combination Suitable for My Family?

During the last couple of years, home appliances have witnessed substantial technological advancements. Washing machines and dryers are no different. Each of these appliances now comes with new features to make washing and drying more effective and convenient. They do also come combined in one device.

Imagine throwing your dirty laundry in the washer dryer combo, before going to work. When you return back home, you find your laundry clean, dry and ready to be folded. The combo washing machines could bring you one step closer to this dream.

Does that sound too good to be true? Will these combo washing machines be suitable for your Adelaide family needs? It all depends on what you are really looking for.

Pros

Combo washing machines can make doing laundry a much easier task for you and your family. You will not have to manually move your laundry from one appliance to the other, anymore. Just load your Adelaide combo washing machine and leave it to complete the task on its own. No manual intervention needed. That is why these combo washing machines are also a good idea for people who have mobility issues. They will not have to move between appliances.

For families living in the inner-city, combo washing machines is a great option. In small Adelaide apartments, where every square centimetre counts, these washing machines will save you space. They do the same things stand-alone washers and dryers do, but with half the footprint. Buying a combo washing machine will not just save you space. It could also save you money, compared to purchasing each device separately.

Cons

Clothes are packed in tightly for washing. Drying works differently. The items need plenty of space for air to circulate between them. Combo washing machines have to do both tasks using the same tub. That is why their drying capacity is usually only half the load it can wash. If you have a big family and typically wash big loads of laundry, then washing will not be a problem. For drying, however, you would have to take half the load off and dry it in a separate cycle.

If you have a small Adelaide household, this should not be a problem. For huge laundry requirements, you would be better off with standalone appliances. You can dry larger loads in the same cycle. Also, you can use your Adelaide washing machine and dryer at the same time.

At Adelaide Appliance Gallery showroom, you will find the best range of high-quality laundry appliances. We stock combo and standalone washing machines and dryers from the world’s best-known brands. Our sales team are professionally trained in all of our laundry appliances. They will help you find the best appliance for your Adelaide household.

Whether you decide to go for a washer-dryer combination or standalone appliances, Adelaide Appliance Gallery has got you covered. Get the best appliances for your family, visit our Adelaide showroom today!

Ironing Tips You Need In Your Life!

Ironing is a tricky task. It is not just about moving the irons back and forth on the clothes. There are many common ironing mistakes that people do, that could ruin delicate outfits. Here are some tips that will help you iron like a pro at your Adelaide home:

Make Use of Your Entire Ironing Board

You should not let the clothes hang on the sides of the ironing board. Therefore, it is advisable to place your long items landscape on the board top. The thinner end of your ironing board is very helpful to iron difficult areas, such as near the armholes. Be careful not to stretch the fabric though.

Use Proper Ironing Techniques

Yes, many people use their flat iron wrong. By wiggling the iron too much, you can cause the fabric to stretch. Unstable iron movements can create new creases on the clothes. These creases will be tougher to iron. The correct technique is to iron in long, straight strokes.

Iron the Garments Inside out

Do your dark clothes have a slight sheen, after ironing them? The heat of the iron can cause that. To avoid this, it is advisable to iron your clothes inside out if possible. It will protect the visible side of your garments and make them look better.

Boil the Ironing Water

The hard water of Adelaide can ruin your iron. Therefore, you should boil the water before putting it in the iron. It will remove the water hardness. Otherwise, you will be risking getting your iron blocked over time. Blocked irons are not efficient. They can also stain clothes.

Iron Shirts in the Right Order

Some items are relatively easy to iron. When it comes to ironing shirts, however, it is a different story. You do not know where to start. The best way is to iron your shirts outside in. This means starting with the collar, then the cuffs and lastly move to the body of the shirt.

Use Bobby Pins to Secure the Pleats

Pleated items are difficult to iron. To make sure the pleats do not move as you iron, you can use bobby pins to keep them in place. This way, you will be able to concentrate more on your ironing technique, without worrying about the pleats.

Iron Cotton Items while Still Damp

The creases of cotton items can be tough to iron. That is why clothes that are made hundred per cent out of cotton are easier to iron while still damp. The heat of the iron will steam the water, causing these tough creases to fall out easily.

Irons, like your other Adelaide home appliances, need regular cleaning and maintenance. If you are looking for the best range of high-quality irons in Adelaide, look no further. At Adelaide Appliance Gallery, we stock irons from the world’s best ironing brand, Laurastar. To learn more about our range of irons, visit our Adelaide showroom today!
