Last week our washing machine died. It was making a horrible grinding sound for a few months now... it finally gave up. I did not know for two days.. I had a mound of washing.. and the lights wouldn't even turn on... She was truly dead. So shopping for new machine, delivery the next day, rain the day after that... 5 days later I have A LOT OF WASHING!!
We decided to buy a front loader as our laundry is a cupboard - space saving and better for the environment etc.. many benefits... but there was one benefit I missed -
It can be substituted for a TV
Our girls find it so much fun to sit in front of it and watch the clothes go round! They actually sat there for 20 mins on Saturday and this morning again!! We made some jokes that if we washed a shirt that had a cartoon character on it we might see it float by!!
One more reason to buy a front loader!
