How tech makes laundry days easier

Put the awe into chore with these futureproof washing machines.

06 Sep 2019

We use technology to make our lives simpler in so many ways. We’ve swapped cash for contactless, we can shop for groceries online and have them delivered to our door. We can even switch on the lights or find out the weather just by asking Alexa.

So why don’t we do the same thing for laundry days? We spend hours every week doing washing and ironing, when it could be time spent doing what we love. But the next generation washing machines could be changing all that.

Leading brands have been using new tech to make washing day a breeze. With faster washing times, larger loads and steam technology to eliminate creases and wrinkles, there are hi-tech washing machines that can take on any challenge. If you’re using the same old washing machine, maybe it’s time for an upgrade. But which is right for you?


For the large loads - Miele PowerWash Washing Machine

Whether you have a big family or you’ve just got a full and sandy suitcase load after a long holiday, the 9kg capacity in the Miele PowerWash can handle it all. Plus, the patented HoneyComb Drum means a gentle ride for your favourite clothes.

Unique to Miele, the Quick PowerWash programme offers A-grade wash results in under an hour, using little water and energy. Why wait longer?

And don’t worry about wearing the machine out. All Miele washing machines are built and tested for equivalent of 20 years use. That’s 10,000 hours of washing, or 5 washes per week for 20 years!


When you just can’t wait - LG V9 Series Washing Machine

The most annoying thing about washing and drying clothes is the time it takes. The LG V9 Series gets you from dirty clothes to sparkling clean in 39 minutes thanks to LG’s TurboWash™ 360° Technology. Jet sprays deliver water onto your clothes in all directions. It’s like a car wash for your clothes.
