I posed a question to my facebook fans a few weeks ago. How many loads of laundry do you do per week?
If you’re a mom who’s kids don’t yet do their own laundry chances are you do more laundry every week than you ever imagined possible. Sometimes as I do the mountains of laundry that pile up at my house I ask myself, “How is it possible that we wear this many clothes in one week?”. Despite our efforts to wear our clothes til they are actually dirty, the mountains of laundry still manage to pile up week after week.
If you cloth diaper, or in our case cloth pull-up, your kids your laundry duties never end. Right now I only do 2 loads of cloth diaper laundry per week, but when we have another baby that number will go up to 3-4. Any mom who washes their own cloth diapers knows that when you wash cloth diapers you become very acquainted with your washing machine. You know it’s strengths and weaknesses, you know just how effective it is at actually getting stuff clean.
Thus far I’ve used three different washing machines (for a long period of time) to wash diapers, and I can tell you that not all washing machines are created equal. My current washing machine is weaksauce. The agitator is very gentle, even when on the heavy duty setting. It is not at all water efficient and fills almost all the way full with water for a medium load.
These reasons and more are why I’m so excited to announce I’ve been chosen to be one of the new Maytag Laundry Moms! I’ll be trying out the new Maytag Bravos washer and dryer and blogging about my laundry escapades. I’ve never used a high efficiency washer and dryer, and I’m looking forward to all the cool features that the Maytag Bravos has! Stay tuned for some inside looks at these new, high powered cleaning machines!
