About 4 years ago, My Mukor and I bought an energy efficient washer and dryer set. We were trying to make certain we were
minimizing our water bill doing our part for the environment. However, I'm convinced these machines are just efficient in name only and don't actually do anything!
Yes, my clothes come out of the machines clean and fluffy. And, yes, they have easy to understand buttons. But does it really take an hour and 30 minutes to get your whites WHITE?! And, HELLO, how is that efficient?!
I use Consumer Reports before making any expensive purchase. Most of the time I pay attention to the details of their report: which is loudest, which gets out stains, which stains does it get out, which uses less water, etc. etc. etc. I seemed to have missed the section that read: Waste less water and energy but waste most of your time!
This last week, I tried to pay attention to the machines to find out what the problem was, but I really have no clue. I think it has something to do with the machines turning mostly off during the cycle to conserve both
and to marinate the clothes in their own filth. I dunno, but if the idea was to anger me enough to make certain I found ways to NOT wash my clothes, this is a WINNING strategy.
