Holiday Clothing Care

Whirlpool Duet Washer & Dryer

As we enter the holiday season, I look forward to attending Christmas and New Year’s parties and to wearing festive clothing. Most of my favorite items are a pain to wash. Beautiful lingerie, delicately-beaded items and lace require hand-washing.

Before I had children, I would hand-wash lingerie and other delicate clothing in the sink and then hang it to dry. With a preschooler and a baby in the house, it’s harder to find the time.

The Whirlpool Duet Washer has a hand-wash cycle, which I used for delicate sweaters, blouses, lingerie and silk hosiery. The instructions did not require a laundry bag, but I used one to prevent possible snags in hosiery or beadwork. I was pleased with the results. Using the hand-wash cycle saved time and effort, and my items came out looking as good as new.

One of my favorite features on the Whirlpool Duet Washer is the liquid detergent reservoir. It holds enough detergent for 36 loads, and I love the convenience of not having to lug out the heavy detergent bottle for every wash. However, I was concerned about doing a hand-wash cycle using my regular HE detergent instead of Woolite, which I’d used for hand-washing for years. Before I did my first load of delicates in the Whirlpool Duet, I did some more research on detergent.

I discovered that the amount of detergent used is just as important as the type of detergent used. The Whirlpool Duet has a special sensor, which measures load conditions and manages the precise release of each additive during the pre-set cycles. This means that the Whirlpool Duet knows exactly the amount of detergent to use on a delicate hand-wash load…as well as when to dispense it. As much as I love Woolite, I felt that the results from my hand-wash cycle in the Whirlpool Duet with regular HE All Free detergent were just as good.

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.

You clearly know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read? >>> Sherrie @
