Spending Less Time Doing More Laundry

posted by Momo Fali on June 8, 2011

As a busy mom, with two kids, two dogs and two jobs, I am always wishing there were more hours in a day.  I can’t tell you how often I climb into bed late, already thinking about how I should get up early because my “to do” list is so long.  And, if I’m not thinking about it then, I start thinking about it when I wake up over and over during the night.

I’m not trying to solve world peace here, I’m just trying to make sure there are bowls clean so that the kids can eat cereal before school, or that I’ve made it to the grocery store and that they have the cereal to eat.  I wish for more hours because my daughter’s softball uniform is filthy and she has a game the next day, or because no one in the house has any clean underwear.

That last sentence?  Well, that’s why I wept when I read about Samsung’s Super-Capacity Powerfoam Washer and their Biggest Capacity Dryer.  I’m not kidding. Can you imagine what being able to wash 28 bath towels IN ONE LOAD would mean to a person like me?  It would mean so much.  So very much.

Aren’t they just beautiful?


My current washer and dryer are the first washer and dryer I ever bought…and I just turned 40.  They are older than my kids, older than my marriage and older than the dirt I try to get out of my son’s pants.

Oh, they still work okay…if it weren’t for the LOUD noises they make and for the fact that it takes me three days to do a week’s worth of laundry.  My washer had the largest capacity for sale in 1995, but it still can’t fit my thin, king-size quilt.  That means I get to make special trips to the laundromat so I can wash bedding.  Guess how much time that takes.  It takes a lot.

So, yeah, I may have cried a little out of pure want and desire.  The idea that it’s even possible to wash and dry so many clothes at once and not be a slave to my basement steps…sigh.

It’s not just the large capacity, but also the Steam Cycle on the Powerfoam Washer that helps to rid your clothes of stubborn stains.  No pre-treating!  Holla!

And, the dream of a front-load dryer has a Steam Refresh setting to freshen clothes AND a Steam Wrinkle Away setting to reduce ironing!  If you’re not weeping yet, then you don’t have kids who wear uniforms to school.  I have an intimate relationship with my iron.  Unfortunately.

The capabilities of this high-powered pair astound me.  They make me long for the day when I can haul my 16 year old washer and dryer to the curb.

They also got me thinking about what I wish other appliances could do to make my life easier.

I mean, if the Samsung Super-Capacity Powerfoam Washer can wash 28 bath towels, why can’t my refrigerator make me dinner?

Look, I’m going to admit it.  Maybe I watched too many episodes of The Jetsons, but I have always wanted a refrigerator that has a secret, side door where I can store a baking dish with a casserole, chicken, lasagna…or maybe brownies.  Then I could set a timer and the compartment would go from chilling the food to cooking it, convection-oven style.

I think it would be great to come home and not have to worry about getting dinner in the oven.  There are only so many things you can make in a Crock Pot (see brownies, above paragraph).

Really, if Samsung has created this powerful washer and dryer, the possibilities are limitless.  I just know it.

Someday I won’t have to lose sleep because my to-do list is so long.  Someday.

  • Lynn @ Walking With Scissors

    Does it have to be a real dream appliance? Because I’d love to have something that tidies the house for me. Somehow I haven’t managed to train the husband/kids to do it yet.

    Oh, maybe a dishwasher that loads/unloads itself!

  • Kimberly

    Oh, I have to concur with Lynn. If I could have a dishwasher that takes the dishes from the sink, washes, sanitizes and returns them to the cabinets SILENTLY, I think I’d be in Heaven.

  • rockle

    My dream appliance would be some kind of microwave-oven-type speed-cooking device that still somehow managed to get pizza crusts and chicken skins and the like actually brown crispy. Happiness is a nice, well-seasoned, brown and crispy slab of chicken skin that you don’t need to wait two whole hours for.

  • rockle

    Oh and I tweetered this: http://twitter.com/#!/rockle/status/78526677541593089

  • Cris

    I wish all my cabinets had built in dishwashers… so there was no “putting away” dishes.

    That and I think it is ridiculous that you have to clean a dishwasher or washer… if their job is to clean, why can’t they clean themselves… just asyin’

  • WebSavvyMom

    –>A self-cleaning house would be my ideal “appliance.” If that’s possible, a new dishwasher where I didn’t have to expect everything after it’s run to make sure things are really clean.

  • Mami2jcn

    My time-saving dream appliance would be a robot that would mop my floors.

  • Mami2jcn


  • Lori Fabian

    I would like a single machine that washes, dries and folds so all you have to do is put in the clothes to clean and take them out to put away. If you could get them to put themselves away too, that’d be great.

  • Michelle

    i would love a magic (no streaks, no ladders!) window washing machine. especially for the upstairs, “vanity” window above our plant ledge that i have to look at every time i go down the steps. it is always covered in rain water spots and a little bit of bird poo. think i’ll just close the curtains for the summer!

  • Sheeny

    A clothes folder and sock matcher and put-er-a-wayer.

  • Lisa

    I find now that I could use 2 dishwashers (I HATE to unload and hate it when I don’t have an empty one for the dirty dishes!) and 2 washers/dryers! I just can’t wait to move mine to the second floor of our house to eliminate the many trips up and down the stairs!

  • Heather

    I’m with Lisa, I want a dishwasher that empties itself. I live with two men that actually are pretty decent at putting their dishes in the washer. However they both hate emptying it. So if it’s full of clean dishes the dirty ones start stacking up. Like REALLY stacking up.

  • Leslie

    My dream appliance would put away all of my folded laundry!

  • Sarah

    I want a stove/fridge combo that could refrigerate food safely until its time to cook it, then turn itself on and cook. I think this exists – its just so expensive I made myself forget about it 🙂

  • Louise Brouillette

    A robot that dusted!

  • Margaret Smith

  • SurprisedMom

    Yes, I am weeping! I need a new washer and dryer and these look and sound fantastic! However, if I were in a dream world, I’d like to be like “I Dream of Jeanne” and just blink my house into neatness . . . everything done!

  • Rebecca Graham

    My dream appliance would clean my windows while I sat back and watched.

  • Moon HalloranLeady

    I want one of those omnipresent computers like on Star Trek…where you just say “Computer! Make me a turkey pot pie!!” and lo and behold, it happens!! Computer also adjusts lighting, cleans the dishes, washes the clothes, cooks the food, yadda yadda yadda.

    Me wants one of those 🙂

  • Moon HalloranLeady



  • daffiney

    I’d like a dishwasher that not only washes dishes (instead of permanently burning on random bits of food like mine) but also changes the dishes completely by the time the cycle is done. Sometimes I get really tired of rinsing, loading, and unloading the same dishes day after day, but maybe it wouldn’t seem like such a chore if they were DIFFERENT dishes every day! Well, one can dream …




    not really an appliance but a self contained discnifecting toliet

  • Joan

    Maybe it would wash and unload clothes and dishes at the same time. And it wouldn’t be so big as to take up a half of a room.

  • Tari Lawson

    I would have a vacume that sucks dirt up in one pass and gets dirt along the walls and under furniture without having to stop it and attach tools to it.

  • Lynne

    Add me to the group of those who are longing for someone to invent a dishwasher that returns dishes and silverware to their homes in the cupboards and drawers after they are clean. I really don’t know why I loathe that chore so much – I actually timed it this morning – it took me less than 3 minutes, but I just dread doing it. Maybe because there is always a lid, or a container still slightly damp, and I hate drying dishes even more, so they end up in the sink drainer to air dry and prolong the whole process. thanks for the chance to win the gift card!

  • Melissa Zimmerman

    I am 34 and learned how to use a dishwasher 2 years ago. As soon as dishes are made, they are put in the washer so that they don’t sit in the sink.

  • lyndsey

    my appliance would fold and put away my laundry for me!!

  • Naomi

    My dream appliance would be a robot that would run errands — since I work full time, it can get difficult to get to the bank, the post office, the dry cleaners, etc. Even though a lot of places are open Saturday mornings, there are just too many places to go, and it’s hard to get motivated to run all those errands on my so-called day off.

    The robot could run those errands for me, and I could come home to a fully stocked fridge, etc.

    Too bad I can’t figure out how to have the robot go to the dentist for me as well!
