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.
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.
