There was a lovely old song about “me darling’” who “looked so neat and nimble, oh, a washing’ of her linens.” Well, we’re in an age where Monday isn’t always washday anymore, and your “darling’” might have a career of her own, thank you very much, where she hasn’t time to dally with the wash. Fortunately for both of you, there’s a marvelous solution to washing’ of the linens, or anything else you need to clean for that matter. It’s the HOTPOINT WDL520 and hopefully you just had sense enough to link and have a good look at it. Take your time, we’ll wait. Isn’t it a beauty?
The load capacity is rated at 7kg, the equivalent of 7 big old thick towels, more than you probably use in a week, and it’ll get them clean, lint and mildew-free, washed quickly and efficiently, and then dried and fluffed as well, for a lot less water and energy than you’d expect to use. Because the unit itself is a lot less expensive than you’d think to pay. It’s the best ever washer for the small household (just and your darling’ right now), and it offers a half-load capacity for smaller loads, done quickly and quietly in the Quick Wash cycle. The HOTPOINT WDL520′s bright and clear LED display lets you know just how long the two of you have to snuggle before a load is done, and then you can pop it into the dryer unit for a fast and easy dry and fluff. Your clothing is ready to wear in less than an hour (not a drycleaner in any of the Isles who can boast that).
A few specs: There are three handy drying programs, a 30 minute cycle (the aforementioned Quick Wash), and an anti-crease option (that marvelous reverse drying that takes out wrinkles so beautifully—no need for the ironing board). It will consume no more than 62 liters of water per cycle, so you’ll see a water bill savings right off the bat, and its annual power consumption is around 1100 KWh a year, so those savings will keep on coming into your energy bill as well.
The HOTPOINT WDL520 is also freestanding, so it will fit in any corner, nook or cranny you can run a hose and a vent, and stay out of the way while you and the missus attend to more important things. Like “a’ wearing of the linens” when you’re off to work, to the gymnasium or to the local pub, where, of course, you’ll have a few pints in your nice clean clothes, and show off your other darling’ to everyone.
It’s finally here, the week you’ve dreaded, thought about, worried about, and fretted over. No, you’re not getting married; you and he committed that little deed five years ago. Are you new family member? Not yet, and besides the flat isn’t big enough. No, his mother, your mother-in-law, is coming. You remember her—the one who gets upset at the slightest wrinkle or crease or depression in her clothes. “She Must Be Obeyed.” She’s coming for a week. She’s going to do laundry. She’s going to use your washer/dryer.
Well, thank goodness you’ve got the LG F1443KD6 / F1443KD dryer, because that little baby is nothing short of a cleaning miracle. Another miracle would be getting through this week in one piece, but one thing at a time. As you can see, this jet-black classic is a gorgeous model, and one possessed of all the specs your mum-in-law will want to keep her clothes fresh, pressed and wrinkle-free. It’s got one of the quietest cycles on the planet (it’s rated at 9.7 out of 10 for noise factors, a practically noiseless experience). It’s got a huge capacity, an 11kg drum that will handle everything from her nicest outfits (pants and blouse included) to the bedspread she’ll expect to be utterly clean when she settles onto it to rest from her hard day.
What else is she going to love? Well, the washer and dryer unit is very “Mother Earth” friendly (and economical on the energy bills), able to handle fast loads (a 30 minute quick wash cycle), and has every cycle you can imagine for cleaning light linens, heavily soiled pants (that’s your hubby’s construction jeans) and everything in between. And when it’s all done, it’ll adjust its drying to make sure your clothes are cupboard ready (it’ll do everything but the folding) or iron-ready (just damp enough to get that lovely ironing edge to it).
Mum-in-law takes frequent baths too (and the last time she was here, she said your place was too dusty for her), and this will handle up to ten big wet bath towels a load. With any luck, that’s the whole week’s bathing right there for her.
But remember of course—when “she” is gone and you’re sitting down with your husband and just basking in the silence, you’ve still got one big benefit. The LG F1443KD6 / F1443KDwasher/dryer are still yours, and now it can handle all the clothes you didn’t get a chance to wash this week. That ought to put a smile on your face again at least until “her” next visit.
I’ve got to say you’re incredibly good looking, shiny and clean and whitened like that a really fine square, solid sense to you. And you’re freestanding! You’ll be handy to move just about anywhere! I’ve got a little cranny in my flat that you will fit in just perfectly. You’re only 85 x 60 x 60 cm? Perfect. The missus is going to love me for this one.
Well, time to check that all-important report card, which separates the men from the dogs, or the good appliances from the lemons. Say, this IS impressive—energy efficiency class: A. Washing efficiency class: A. Drying power: A. Nice! And it even comes in white OR black, for a fashionable look to that corner nook of ours—the one the missus is always decorating. I don’t know when I’ve seen a more beautiful dishwasher, or one that rated so highly in EVERY single field test.
Oh, sorry, didn’t mean to leave you out of all this. You haven’t seen it, yet, have you? Well, here it is, the amazing INDESIT IDF125. I don’t blame you for staring, I was pretty impressed myself. Actually, I’m a bit beyond impressed—I’d say I’m in love. Don’t tell the missus I said that.
What’s the most amazing thing about this unit? Well, along with the all-As report card, it’s got the solid backups from consumers. Yes, all of them answered surveys about it, and all of them said things like: “Great value for the money . . . we’re a family of five and we chuck everything in the dishwasher every night. This one copes easily and everything comes out clean . . . good quiet clean wash . . . love the short cycle . . .flexible basket layouts . . .strong cutlery holder . . . never broken anything.” Not a dish-washing wife, husband or teenager ever gets ratings that good and they’re supposed to be mighty conscientious.
Well, I guess it’s time to stop staring and actually take some action. I’m buying it! But—if YOU are still not sure, let me mention this: the website (that’s the one on the link up there) guarantees you won’t find a cheaper price or a better package, anywhere. And it has a year’s free replacement parts and service (or, for a nominal fee, 3 or 5 years of absolutely no worries, called the Extra Care plan).
Oh, I’m definitely buying the INDESIT IDF125—did you see that price tag? Anyone can’t afford to pass up a deal like this.
I’m off to click and buy. Good looks, great report card, fabulous price. Don’t think I’ll find a better one, anywhere. Nor will you, for that matter—want to join me shopping?
