Save time, money, and the environment: Samsung QuickDrive washing machine
If you think washing machines just spin your clothes in hot soapy water until they’re clean, it’s time to think again. This machine comes with some very clever features, to give you incredible results every single time.
QuickDrive technology increases the water-flow in the machine, meaning it can get your washing done in half the time. And, because it’s faster, it uses less water. So, it’s kinder to the environment while saving you money at the same time, what’s not to like about that?
Samsung added another feature that makes it even better for the environment. It’s called ‘Ecobubble’, and it works by mixing air, water and detergent to create bubbles that penetrate your clothes faster.
So, with all the clever features and the huge 10-kilo drum, you’ll always manage to stay on top of the laundry.
Get your laundry done the smart way: LG TurboWash FH4U2VCN2 washing machine
Washing machines aren’t the first thing that come to mind when we think about smart tech, but this LG machine comes with some very smart features indeed.
The free Android app from LG lets you download new washing programs and then load them straight onto your Bluetooth-enabled washing machine, thanks to NFC pairing.
It also comes with LG’s Smart Diagnostics. This monitors your machine and if it detects an issue, it sends an alert to your phone to tell you what the problem is. No more headaches wondering what the problem could be.
LG’s Direct Drive technology also means it’s very quiet, thanks to an electromagnetic motor which keeps vibrations to a minimum. This means you’ll be able to put a wash on at any hour, without disturbing the whole house.
