The way I do laundry has changed over the last couple months since I received my Maytag Bravos XL washer and dryer. I already told you how I cut my laundry time in half! I’m washing bedding more often because it is so quick and easy. I’ve also started washing more in cold water and have had excellent results.
Washing Bedding in Maytag Bravos is Addicting
With the addition of a new puppy to our family and cold season here, I’m washing all of our bedding more often. Having Maytag brand’s largest capacity top load washer and dryer has given me the ability to do this with ease. My son has a queen size bed, I can wash his sheets, blanket, and comforter in one load easily. With the addition of a new puppy to our home, I’m washing bedding more often – even though we have a “no dog on the bed” rule!
My Maytag Bravos XL HE Top Load Washer with PowerWash System washes our bedding quickly and without effort. I love the huge 4.6 cu feet capacity! And with a puppy, I always use the Allergen setting for bedding.
My Maytag Bravos XL™ High--Efficiency Dryer dries laundry quick. I didn’t use to ever wash all 3 bed’s worth of bedding in one day because it would easily equal 5 loads to wash and dry. Now, I wash it all the time! In fact, I never had time to wash bedding weekly before because I had all of the regular laundry to do, now, it takes me 1/2 the loads to wash our regular laundry! The 7.3 cu feet capacity can dry a lot of clothes efficiently. My son’s queen size bedding is not a challenge, with space left over.
My husband laughs at how often I wash our king size comforter. He says, “You know you are only washing it because you can!” And it is totally true. Before, I would have to take our king size comforters to the laundromat, wasting a couple hours of my time for one article of laundry. Needless to say, I didn’t wash it often enough. Now, I pop it in the washer any time of day and walk away.
Plus, I really like the Advanced Moisture Sensing technology that the Maytag Bravos dryer offers, it actually senses when my laundry is dry for me instead of me setting a time. There are several sensor cycles that you can choose from based on the type of laundry being dried. I use this all the time now, I figure that the dryer has a better idea how long it takes to dry my wet laundry than I do! This saves energy and time. I’m not over-drying my laundry or getting 1/2 wet clothing out of the dryer anymore. I’m not shrinking clothing anymore either!
The Maytag Bravos XL Dryer dries even bulky king size comforters thoroughly every time. I just can’t believe how much time this Maytag duo saves me, not to mention how much cleaner my family’s bedding and clothing are because of it.
Washing in Cold Water
Did you know that heating water for laundry is one of the biggest energy usages in most homes? I’ve been washing more of my clothes in cold water since I’ve been using the Maytag Bravos washer. There is actually a Cold Wash Cycle that cleans just as well as a warm wash cycle, giving you all of the energy savings of using cold water. Making the switch to cold water for 75% of your laundry can easily save you $100 a year, just in energy bills.
Plus, washing in cold water is gentler on your clothing. Many people think they need to use hot water to get stains out. No with the Maytag Bravos, it uses a deep clean cold cycle to power out all of your tough stains like wine, chocolate, and dirt. It does this with an extra cleaning action and precise slow motion soak. I like to use Tide Cold Water for my cold washes too, it’s designed to wash better in cold water. It gives you clean, fresh-smelling clothes while you use less energy and save money.
I haven’t had anything stain since I’ve been using my Maytag Bravos. Last week, I accidentally washed my daughter’s new white shirt and white hoodie with a red throw that I always wash separately. I was sick and posted it on AkronOhioMom’s facebook page. Everyone so graciously offered advice on products that I didn’t have at home. So, I tried the power wash setting on the washer with bleach. I ran it throw twice and both shirts that were very pink turned out white! If that isn’t enough proof that the Maytag Bravos powers out stains, I don’t know what is! I wish I had taken pictures of the near-disaster!
Needless to say, I’m saving time and having so much fun checking out all of the new functions of my Maytag Bravos washer and dryer. I highly recommend them both.
