New 12-Minute Laundry Cycles; For Real?


You probably still hear stories from your grandmothers about their day-to-day lives being taken up by going to the river to wash all their clothes, sitting there scrubbing from morning to night.  And you’re probably so glad you never had to live during those times.  But think about how much further we could go?  Imagine your grandchildren feeling sorry for you that your washing machine was pretty much working all day and it took the better part of an afternoon for your clothes to clean?  

Save Time, Energy and Water

It seems that this is happening even sooner than we anticipated.  Highly reputable manufacturer Russell Hobbs has just developed a machine which boasts it can clean laundry in as little as 12 minutes and a ton less water than standard 90 minute cycles.  As well, a staggering 212,415 gallons of water will be saved over a lifetime!  That is enough to fill nearly 17 swimming pools!


How Does Russell Hobbs Do It?


So the question being asked is, how on earth is this manufacturer doing it?  Well, apparently there are now two jet nozzles which are being used to spray water and detergent.  Our machines have always traditionally used only one.  But don’t expect to get off lightly when you make the purchase, the cheapest one being £247, but think how much money you will get to save long-term, as well as time?


Any Disadvantages?


Well, everything comes with a side issue.  Sometimes the 12-minute cycle won’t quite get all your stains out if they are really strong.  Ultimately a good “old-fashioned soak” is what will really get rid of mega-stains.  But this is just the first model and who knows how many improvements will be made in the future?  It’s probably worth holding off for a while and waiting to see what Russell Hobbs’ competitors come up with in the near future.  You’ve waited this long and spent enough time on your laundry; what’s another few months with the thought of mega-time, water and money being saved in the future?
