Washing machines are an invention that has given us a great respite from our ever-growing chores. In India, due to the high levels of soiling and grime, our clothes tend to get dirty after every first or second use. Therefore, washing clothes weekly is a tedious task. Washing machine is a convenient alternative that reduces physical exertion and the time it takes to wash clothes. Washing machines are also energy efficient and use less detergent compared to washing clothes by hand. While it is one of the most widely used appliances, there are some misunderstandings about its technology, features, and operations.
Below are some of the myths debunked by Voltas Beko So that you can make or consider most of your washing machine at home while you invest in a new one.
Front loading washing machines are better
With advanced technology, front loading and top loading washing machines now have similar functions and are energy efficient. Depending on the space you have in your home, you can choose one of them to get the job done. However, what you should look for in a washing machine is energy efficiency, the latest technology, and the noise a machine makes while it is in use.
More detergent leads to better cleaning of the laundry
Have you ever heard of the saying – Everything is bad! Well, that is true here too. This is a common misconception that not only leads to detergent waste, but also leads to poorly washed clothes. In fact, using an extra detergent can lead to the formation of more foam, which leaves more residue. At the same time, it leaves more deposits inside the machine. Not only can this damage the components of the machine and cause failure, but in some cases it can also leave a foul odor. For normal amounts of dirt and a pile of clothes, a quarter of the recommended amount (on the packaging) is sufficient.
Washing machines do not need to be serviced or serviced
Everyone needs care, so why leave out washing machines? There is a popular saying in the world of electronics: A well-maintained and well-maintained machine is an efficient one. A washing machine takes care of water, detergent and a pile of clothes every day. With this in mind, it is very likely that any piece of electronics that is constantly moving will have loose connections with regular use. The inlet and outlet pipes must also be checked periodically for leaks and cracks over time. It is recommended that you maintain your washing machine and have it serviced regularly to remove detergent residue and extend the life of your machine.
Do not overload the machine
Every washing machine has a defined load capacity that it can handle. This capacity is measured in volume and stated in kilograms. For the best washing quality, do not stuff clothes into the machine that exceed the specified capacity. However, in facilities like shared families, hostels, PGs, etc., laundry baskets are usually overcrowded. In such cases it is ideal to choose machines with Fast + technology. This technology helps to make the washing cycle 55% faster than with conventional washing programs with optimal washing results.
The machine swallows everything
Well, yes, for germs and bacteria! The antimicrobial function can swallow anything. However, this is not the case with items that you leave in your clothes. A washing machine is a moving technology that tends to seal things like coins, safety pins, hairpins, etc. Such items can get stuck in the outlet pump and damage the drum during a spin cycle.
Over the years we have heard and believed some of these clothes washing myths. But to make our lives seamless and comfortable, we need to get rid of hearsay and learn about what a washing machine does. As buyers, we shouldn’t see it as an expensive purchase, but rather as a one-time investment that will last for years.
