Catching up on laundry after our two-week trip to Texas earlier this month was a breeze. It made me realize just how much I missed my washer and dryer while I was away.
Not that I took them for granted or anything, but I think I had finally settled in and laundry started to become a standard routine again. Using my mom’s washer and dryer a few times made me aware of just how lucky I am to have had this opportunity to be a Test Drive Mom. I missed my husband, of course, but I may have longed for my Frigidaire Affinity twosome even more so!
Thanks to these beauties, laundry isn’t so much of a chore anymore. I haven’t found a single item of clothing that I can’t wash. Even my most delicate “unmentionables” can be tossed in there without a second thought.
A friend of mine asked me if I’ve really saved time with my Frigidaire Affinity washer and dryer, and I’m happy to say I have. Energy, too. I know it’s hard to get from a photo, but just look at how big these machines are…
- The Fits-More 7.0 cu. Ft. Dryer (on the right) is the largest capacity dryer in a standard size*. This lets me dry more at once, saving me time and energy in the long run. (*based on dryers 36″ or less in height and 27″ or less in depth)
- TimeWise™ technology: wash time equals dry time – so you don’t wait for clothes to dry.
There really is a 25 minute cycle! I use this Quick cycle for washing all the time, but sometimes the dryer needs a little more time, especially of it’s a larger load. This cycle has been a lifesaver, however, for those times when I’ve realized at the last minute that something needed to be washed right away.
- Save Your Settings feature: The last wash/dry settings are automatically saved so I don’t have to waste time changing things around the next time I do laundry.
This is great. It’s the little things, you know? Always having the signal volume at the level I want… keeping the water cold, just how I like it… it’s nice not having to worry about those things.
- Energy Saver Option: Reduces water temperature which saves energy when washing clothes.
I haven’t taken a look at my utility bills to see just how much I’ve saved in the past few months, but I’m sure the difference will be clear this winter, when our gas bill is usually sky-high. Once I actually sit down and compare numbers, I’ll let you know what I find!
