Washing machines are a staple in countless Canadian households. Instead of spending hours washing your clothes by hand, you can set it and forget it for 30-60 minutes and come back to find your clothes fresh and clean. The time-saving aspect is incredible, making one of the most time-consuming chores a treat to do on a daily or weekly basis.
While many people use drying racks, clotheslines, and hangers to dry their clothes, there are not many alternatives to a washing machine when it comes to getting your clothes clean. Sure, you can hand wash your clothes in the sink or bathtub, but this can take a significant amount of time. For many families who work full-time jobs and have kids, this would be impossible. The other alternative is using a laundromat, but the cost and travel time makes this difficult for many.
Benefits of a Home Washing Machine
A home washing machine can save you hundreds of dollars per year compared to washing your clothes at a laundromat. For a family who does 8 loads of laundry per week, that expense can add up over a year. Throughout its lifetime, a washing machine can save you thousands compared to its up-front cost. Especially when you wash your clothes on a cold setting, the energy-usage is minimal, helping save you money on your electricity bill and maintain a responsible environmental footprint.
