Laundry Scientists And Samsung Want Us To Be Happy.

I would like you to meet someone.

Say hello to Samsung’s Steam and PowerFoam™ Front-Load washer and dryer.

I know what you are thinking, you are probably all, “Um, it’s another washer and dryer, big whoop”.  I thought that too.  Here’s the deal:  this inconspicuous cleaning duo holds a king sized comforter. Or 28 bath towels.  Like at once.

Now here’s where say to yourself, “But does it really get all that laundry clean?” Here’s the deal, Samsung has created PowerFoam™ Technology.  PowerFoam™ is apparently a “powerful but gentle foam created using regular detergent, water and air so you can confidently wash your biggest loads with foam that penetrates the fabric more deeply, quickly and thoroughly”.

Since I’m not a laundry scientist, I think that means “Cram a whole bunch of dirty laundry into this here fancy washer, add detergent and it makes a foam! And then you’re done!”

And in case you are wondering, which I know you are, the dryer also has special gifts.  It has Sensor Dry, which is a ninja setting that basically knows when to stop drying your clothes.  For those times when you don’t feel like ironing (that’s totally a joke, no one feels like ironing ever), you can use the Steam Wrinkle Away setting and just steam the wrinkles out, no ironing board needed.

With Samsung’s Front-Load Washer and Dryer, they want us to spend less time doing more laundry, which is thoughtful.  I think if someone really wants to knock it out of the park, we need a washer that is also a dryer.  I can’t tell you how many times I have washed a load of clothes and forgot to transfer them over to the dryer.  If I wasn’t worrying about moving the clothes from the washer to the dryer, I would have so much more free time to clean the bathrooms.  And by clean the bathrooms, I mean shop online.

And now get this,
