When you’re washing a piece of clothing that has stubborn stains, you’ll have to give it a good scrubbing right before placing it in the washing machine. This usually requires you to run back and forth to the kitchen or washroom – but a new washing machine range from Samsung aims to make this process easier.
The new Activewash washing machine from Samsung features a built-in sink – which is perfect for pre-washing. The bowl of the sink is ridged, just like a washing board, to help displace stains more easily.
While this may not be necessary for the average household, it can be a major benefit to some homeowners. For example, if you work in a job in which your clothes become heavily stained daily (such as a nurse, a construction worker or a cook), then this model will benefit you. The same applies for households that have a small child, who is likely to come home with stubborn stains on their fairly often.
If you’re in the market for a new washing machine – or £800 for a new model is out of your budget – there is another way to prewash your clothing using only your washer. If you have a top-loading washing machine:
- Load your detergent and any other laundry supplies
- Add your clothing to the water
- Let the machine fun for few minutes
- Stop the machine to allow the clothing and detergent to mix
- Leave the machine off for several hours
- Turn the machine back on and allow the cycle to finish
