Couple weeks back I attended one of the best events thus far for this year. Samsung South Africa dedicated a night to moms. It’s not often we as bloggers get invited to an event that insists you to bring your mom, so I wasn’t planning on missing this opportunity.
Samsung has always been known to have big launches but this was something small and intimate. The guest list was carefully chosen and everyone there had an opportunity to mingle with each other. I finally met Jo-Anne Strauss (Former Miss South Africa) who I’ve been communicating with over email and twitter the past couple months and bumped into the talented singer LeAnne Dlamini.
The night was dedicated to all things clean. 😉 No one knows better about washing than moms right? When I walked in and saw the Activ dualwash, I thought to myself: “Oh, it’s just another washing machine that must be super expensive”. But actually it isn’t and the features surprised me.
I’ve always had a front loader and the reason for that is because of the cupboard space in my kitchen but if I had a choice, I wouldn’t mind moving over to a top loader.
So what is the big deal about this washing machine?
It’s innovatively designed with a built-in sink with water jet and gentle scrubbing surface, this groundbreaking solution saves time, reduces effort and avoids mess by enabling consumers to presoak, hand scrub and auto wash the entire wash process in the washing machine instead of having to spread the process out over multiple locations.
A closer look at the product’s features reveals many benefits:
Sink and Water Jet
The activ dualwash system includes a dedicated sink that provides a convenient space to soak and/or hand-wash delicate items and comfortably pre-treat heavily stained areas of clothes before starting a normal wash cycle. The water jet which starts and stops at the push of a button, provides access to water, thus allowing for easy soaking and scrubbing. Once finished, the laundry and water can easily be poured into the machine by simply lifting the sink. This drops the items into the tub below for a spotless wash that completes the effortless, all-in-one washing process.
The Magic Dispenser eliminates the annoyance of residual detergent on fabric. It achieves this by creating a powerful water vortex that dissolves detergent and disperses it evenly before the wash cycle starts.
The Magic Filter takes care of the details that make your clothes look fresh and clean. By gathering lint, fluff and particles, it keeps unwelcome specks off your whites and darks, so you can look good without having to inspect and tidy the little things. It is easy to clean and it does all this while protecting your drain from getting clogged.
The activ dualwash utilises Samsung’s revolutionary Wobble technology to protect delicate fabrics from friction damage without compromising the washing performance. State-of-the-art Wobble pulsators generate a dynamic, multi-directional washing flow that prevents tangles, twists and knots while thoroughly cleaning your clothes with increased washing power that requires less water consumption.
Rear Control Panel
This extremely imaginative washing machine features a Rear Control Panel. Located at the back of the machine, it provides better visibility and ease of use while also being protected from water splashes during hand and pre-washing. The panel’s dual cluster design clearly separates the control buttons so that they are much simpler to learn and intuitive to use.
Additional Features and Benefits
The active dualwash top loader’s Diamond Drum boasts a highly original design that treats clothes with more care than a conventional drum. Its smooth, diamond-shaped ridges are supremely gentle on even the most delicate items, and its small water exit holes prevent fabric from becoming trapped and damaged so that garments remain intact and look good for longer. Its Eco Tub Clean course keeps the tub clean without the need for chemicals, which results in a substantial biofilm reduction, while the activ dualwash’s Digital Inverter Technology delivers superior energy efficiency, minimal noise and long-lasting performance, and all of this backed up by a 10 year warranty on the motor (*model specific).
So the next time you shopping for a new washing machine, consider the Activ dualwash.
