There’s An App…for that Stain

My high-tech Whirlpool Duet Washing Machine is what I imagine Captain Kirk would have used to wash his clothing.

Like many moms, I spend a lot of time doing laundry even as I juggle working and taking care of two young boys. I’ve already raved about how I can do laundry one-handed while holding the baby since my new Whirlpool Duet has an automatic laundry detergent dispenser.

My biggest laundry pet peeve is dealing with stains. I know it’s important to treat clothing properly, and I particularly want to keep my oldest’s clothing in good condition so it can be used as hand-me-downs for his younger brother. But after a long day at work, I don’t want to spend time googling stain removal. And now I don’t have to! My new Whirlpool Duet Washer has an app for that– right on the washing machine.

I have two young boys…and a husband who loves home improvement projects. All three of my boys are hard on their clothing.  Mr. Home Improvement frequently stains his clothing with grass, mud, grease, and sometimes even blood from various projects around the house and in the yard. My preschooler’s clothing is frequently adorned with food (strawberries, ketchup, chocolate pudding), crafts (glitter, glue, paint, washable markers) and the great outdoors (grass, mud). But my least favorite laundry mess is my infant’s diaper blowouts.

Now when I’m faced with these stains, I can use the Whirlpool Duet’s Stain Assist App.  First, I select the category and then the stain. Generally, my stains fall under the “Children” or “Outdoor” categories. There’s even a subcategory for diaper blowouts! The App gives detailed instructions about what cycle to use and how to treat the stain, which is particularly useful because my Whirlpool Duet looks like something out of a Star Trek episode. The number of cycles and settings would be overwhelming without the built-in instructions, which is a perfect feature for those of us who are too lazy/tired/disorganized to actually read the manual that comes with our washer. Since I’ve been dealing with a lot of diaper blowouts recently, I appreciate the “Sanitize” setting on the Whirlpool Duet. Using this setting kills all that bacteria, and the clothing comes out smelling fresh and looking new.

It’s more environmentally-friendly to wash clothing in cold water, and most stains do not require hot water or the sanitize setting. I particularly like the Whirlpool Duet’s EcoBoost option. This feature offsets the decrease in water temperature with an increase in  agitation (tumbling). I’ve tried this setting multiple times, and my clothing looks and smells clean.  I haven’t seen a difference in my energy bills yet, but (according to the Whirlpool website) I could save as much as $3,300 in lifetime energy costs by using the Whirlpool Duet Washer & Dryer.

Being a mom is tough, so I believe it pays to invest in appliances that make our lives just a bit easier. In fact, I think I should use some of the time I’ve saved with the new Stain Assist App and the money I’ve saved with the energy-efficient features to get myself to a spa…because we all deserve that after dealing with a houseful of kids and piles of dirty, smelly laundry. Wouldn’t you agree?

Disclosure: I wrote this review while participating in a test-drive campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Whirlpool and received a complimentary Whirlpool Duet washer and dryer to facilitate my review.
