Time and energy go down the drain thanks to limited laundry capacity...
Hoover has released the results of a recent consumer survey which revealed that the average Brit carries out an additional 135 washes every year due to limited washing machine capacity.
The survey, which reported on 1,000 UK households, shows that over three quarters of us put extra washes on to separate colours and whites and it is not a wonder when 35% of us have experienced colours running in the wash.
"Limited capacity and coloured clothes are costing us dearly when it comes to time spent doing our laundry each week," says Steve Macdonald, marketing director of Hoover's freestanding division. "This survey highlights what we long suspected, that an awful lot of time could be saved if we had machines that could accommodate more clothes, and could wash colours and whites together in one load."
In a bid to make capacity and colour conundrums a thing of the past, Hoover recently launched a 13kg washing machine as part of Hoover Wizard - the family of Wi-Fi enabled appliances controllable via an app downloaded to a smartphone or tablet. It communicates with the app to allow the user to identify and store favourite programmes, schedule a start time for the wash cycle and receive live status alerts.
As well as being able to wash up to 65 shirts in one go, the machine handle a full load of whites and bright coloured fabrics at the same time without the risk of colours running, all in just 59 minutes.
"One in three of those surveyed said they could save up to an hour every week by washing colours and whites together and that is exactly what this washing machine allows you to do!" adds Steve. "When you combine this with a huge capacity and the added benefit of Wi-Fi technology - this appliance is set to be a real timesaver."
