I hope my blog readers appreciate my randomness (is that a word??) I figure, it keeps it interesting.
Now, back to basically what began all the hype with the blog. Laundry.
Last week, my washer / dryer officially DIED. Yep, I milked them along as long as I could and thanks to my clothesline, it lasted longer than I had anticipated. But the time had come.
Can you feel my excitement??? I got a front loading set, and hopefully my water bill will reflect it (and power bill as well) ANYTHING has to be more efficient that the old set we had. It was taking 2+ hours to dry a load, and I am WAY too busy for that nonsense. :)
I was very hesitant to change for one BIG reason though…..the laundry SOAP. Yeah, I am certain if they insisted only the high price H.E detergent be used, I might have had to reconsider.
But….when I asked specifically, the owner of the store (whom I know personally and TRUST his word) told me that the G.E Sales Representative herself uses the homemade soap…… SOLD !!!!!!!!! I am 100% confident now, that YES YES YES you definitely CAN use the Simply Wonderful laundry soap in front loaders. The very most asked question of all time on the blog and the answer was, and still is, Y.E.S !!
And what makes this whole deal even sweeter? I got a $100 cash rebate from Mid American Energy for the purchase and another $35 cash rebate from G.E. I now am using ONLY one Tbsp of laundry soap, as recommended instead of 2, again, from the G.E Sales Rep herself, so my laundry soap will be lasting even longer.
I was also told that normal top loaders, large batch takes about 39 to 40 gallons of water. This front loader, large batch will take only 12 to 13.
in addition to the energy savings of about 30 minutes of drying time???
hmmmmm….. WHY on earth did I wait so long to make this purchase?
