Surprisingly, what many people don’t take advantage of are washing machine settings designed to make your life easier.
In fact, a survey found 20 per cent of homeowners only use one of the settings almost every time they wash.
1 – Silent setting
Some machines come with a silent setting, which is great if you’re worried about disturbing your neighbours or other family members.
2 – Time delay
Need to wash your clothes but don’t have time hang around waiting for the cycle to finish? Set the timer to start the wash so that it finishes around the same time you will be home. That way your items won’t be left to smell in the drum for too long.
3 – Adjust your spin speed
Depending on what you are washing, upping the spin speed can reduce your drying time.
4 – Quick wash
Only have a few items that need washing? Pop them in the drum and change the setting to quick wash just make sure you don’t fill it too high as it may take longer.
