5 things about a washing machine that you should know

There is no way to avoid using washing machines unless you want to hand wash your clothes and spend hours doing so.

Here are 5 things you should know about washing machines.

Before buying

Capacity

If you live as a couple, a 5 kg washing machine is good enough. But, if you live with parents and children, consider a machine in the range of 7 to 8 kg. For an even bigger, traditional joint family, buy a bigger washing machine of 9.5 kg load.

Automatic or semi-automatic

If you are a working person, prefer buying an automatic one, its quick and convenient, but a bit expensive at the same time.

Top or front load

Top loaders are cheaper and easy to use but they take a lot of time for the laundry to complete and sometimes the noise can be irksome. Front loaders are quick, convenient and big, but expensive.

For using

Vinegar

It’s the best ingredient for quick and thorough cleaning of the washing machine. All you need to do is put 2 cups of vinegar into your washing machine without any clothes and run a regular cycle.

Kill bacteria and germs with hot water

You can kill more germs by washing clothes and bed sheets in hot water instead of cold water.

Top Tip

Check the label for instructions before washing any apparel or clothes in hot water.
