It’s hard to believe that almost two weeks ago, I was in San Jose California living it up celebrating the 10th year anniversary #BlogHer14 style. It’s also hard to believe that even that far away, I was thinking about all of the great things that I would want for my home during the expo. Samsung had a booth dedicated entirely to home appliances and I was as giddy as a school girl. I remember two years ago, they had an entire home set up for Blog Her in New York City, but my mind wasn’t on all things house related like they are now.
My focus zone was the greatness that were their washer and dryers. With four kids, and a husband, we get loads of laundry around these parts. The three youngest alone change clothes more times in a day than Beyonce does at one of her concerts. Seriously. It’s like New York Fashion Week around these parts. Daily. With the amount of time that I spend cleaning the house – or pretending to clean the house, homeschooling, and generally being out of the house, laundry isn’t in my frontal lobe. Actually, it’s so far out of the frontal lobe that Mr. Houseful does it. So in reality, this is a love letter of sorts to him. What I would love to get him for the new home. If you don’t believe me, I just want you to check out these specs of the front loading washer and dryer set (which is my preference):
This is the world’s largest washer and dryer, with 5.6 cu. ft. washer capacity and 9.5 cu. ft. dryer capacity.
Samsung’s biggest capacity lets the user wash and dry four laundry baskets in a single load.**
There is a SuperSpeed feature that you add to several wash cycles that makes your load time 50 percent faster, meaning a full load of laundry is done in just 30 minutes.
Users can save more than 3 hours of laundry time per week
PowerFoam™ Technology creates a powerful yet gentle foam that easily penetrates through fabrics which means there is confidence in washing even the biggest loads.
The VRT® Plus Technology makes this the quietest washer in its class. It helps with vibration and noise reduction which not only keeps your load balanced but makes it perfect for upstairs laundry.
A Steam Washer helps remove stains with limited pre-treatment, while a Steam Dryer means less time ironing and fewer trips to the dry cleaner.
The dryer also has a Vent Sensor™ that detects problems and notifies the user when it is time to clean the vent. The washer also features Self Clean +. This cycle keeps your washer drum and the gasket fresh and 99.9% bacteria free without the use of harsh chemicals.
To perform a quick diagnosis of the pair, they feature Smart Care which allows you to troubleshoot with your smartphone. MSRP: $1,699 washer; $1,699 dryer
These bad boys can fit two king size comforters in them to wash or dry. TWO. I mean, I don’t own a king size bed, maybe if I did, I’d only be two children in, but that’s water under the bridge at the moment. I loved being able to see it in action on the expo floor. The fact that this washing machine can steady itself and make it where there isn’t large amounts of bumping and thumping while washing is music to my ears. The fact that I can also program it to start at a certain time is even better. No more forgetting to do laundry all day! I loved how cozy the entire booth was, and they did have a refrigerator, stove, diswasher, purifier (for baby’s things) and microwave oven. It was like sitting in my own private Idaho. Wait. Basically, I mean it was heaven. I’m loving all things house related lately, which is amazing seeing that all things house related also seem to drive me crazy because there is so much to choose from. I shouldn’t be surprised that Samsung has found it’s way into my heart though. I’m a Samsung phone holder, and tablet holder, and television holder. It’s amazing. So now, to put away the duckets for all of the appliances I hope to squirrel into the house without Mr. Houseful knowing, but it won’t matter anyway, because I’m cutting down on his laundry time. Win, Win, right?
