The Samsung Activ Dualwash is a good idea!

“They say no one understands laundry better than a mom”… but did they forget to mention the part were no mom likes spending hours a day trying to scrub a ketchup stained t-shirt?

For the last couple weeks, I’ve been preparing for my little one which means lots of washing and cleaning! My helper’s daughter was sick so she couldn’t assist me every day and since I’m a perfectionist I decided to tackle pre-washing myself while being 34 weeks pregnant. Washing from a tub with a big belly and swollen feet – BAD IDEA!

It took me hours. There were loads of butt cramps, back aches and pausing to catch my breath back… That day I had one wish: I wished for a washing machine that would make pre-washing easier and clothes lint free. My two biggest hurdles which made me have a love-hate relationship with my laundry basket. The truth is every mom wants that laundry basket to magically disappear. I really wish my bank account filled as quickly as my laundry basket!

If only there was a laundry fairy…

Well… things changed for me 2 weeks ago when Samsung invited to me join Mission Samsung. It was like the laundry fairy finally listened!

For moms, shopping for a washing machine is like picking out a car or branded stroller. You want the best at a good price. Most of the time you never get the best of both, you have to sacrifice one for the other… but not anymore!

Samsung Activ Dulawash

Samsung has answered our prayers ladies! Laundry isn’t going to be a nightmare, instead you will be relaxing with a glass of wine waiting for your laundry to be done. You won’t be screaming at your husband anymore to assist you and you will spend more time bonding with your kids.

4 reasons you will love the Samsung Activ Dualwash:

  1. Wobble technology makes sure that there’s no more tangled washing.

The most annoying part of taking out laundry from a washing machine is having to untangle everything. No one wants to spend 2 hours trying to find the missing sock which ended up inside your husband’s work pants.

Samsung has made washing easier with wobble technology. It provides gentle care of fabrics without compromising washing performance. Wobble pulsators generate a dynamic, multi-directional washing flow that prevents tangles and increases washing power.

  1. Magic Filter ensures there is no lint left on clothes.

My husband leave tissues in his pockets, this is even worse than the lint from the washing. You can only imagine what happens when you open a freshly washed load and “Walla” crumbs of tissue fall down. That’s when I don’t know whether to laugh or cry…. Yes, I know I am not a perfect wife – I should check the pockets when I wash the clothes. Honestly I do but sometimes I just forget… and I end up with a mess. I have also noticed that my baby’s track pants which also tends to form little balls of lint on them is now smooth.

Samsung created an easy accessible filter in your machine that gathers the lint, fluff and particles so your laundry stays cleaner, while protecting your drainage from getting clogged up.

  1. The built-in sink makes messy pre-treatment a thing of the past.

This would be my biggest reason for recommending this washing machine. I am a mom with a very busy toddler – my little madam is always painting or messing with play dough and crayons. We know the saying that goes… “They are always dirty because they are learning.” Well in that case my madam is a genius.

I need to pre-treat and pre-wash then rinse in a tub and then put into the washing machine. Now I can do it all in one. The top opens up to provide a basin that even provides a jet spray which allows me to spot wash. I can replace my ridged washboard with the elegant design of this machine. It’s not just for good looks.

Add the fact that I do not need to drain the water out and we are in heaven. A simple cycle drains out the dirty water and we can wash.

Convenience at my fingertips.

A dream come true for every mom who struggles with washing in the bathroom tub. 

  1. Magic Dispenser means no more worrying about stains left on clothes.

Don’t you hate when you end up having clean clothes with washing powder stains?

It is quite annoying that once I had removed the clothes from the machine and was at the line drying them out I would find patches. I then had to go back to the basin and re-wash/rinse the stains out. This is in between the 1 million other things that I need to get done.

This clever dispenser lets you wash with less worry about residual detergent. It creates a powerful water vortex that dissolves detergent and disperses it evenly before the wash cycle starts. So guess what? No more stains… 😀
