The Top 5 Washing Machine Horrors

Sep 10, 2008
After reading through countless blog, articles and newspaper cuttings of people talking about things such as the top 5 washing techniques and top tips when buying a washing machine, I have decided to let everyone know the top 5 horrors that a washing machine can cause. We will now take a look in detail at various washing machine horrors.

1) Firstly washing machines have a great tendency to change the colours of your best clothes. It's a bit like getting the hair dye that you never wanted, so be sure to completely separate your black from your colours and your colours from your whites.

2) Washing machines do have an appetite for clothes especially socks, you can put a pair of socks in the machine and then when you go to take them out, they have totally disappeared. Could it be magic? No of course not you should always put your socks into a bag when you wash them so that they do not go down one of the escape routes.

3) Another tendency that washing machines seem to have is they love to shrink clothes, the smaller the better. No this is not a true fact and you should carefully check each item to make sure it is processed at the right temperature.

4) Some washing machines, especially the cheaper versions have the ability to set alight, that's right if these types of washing machines are left on over a long period of time or throughout the night, they may cause a house or business fire which is not very good news. So be sure to get yourself a top of the range reliable washing machine.

5) Finally there is the terrible horror of a child or a small pet climbing into a washing machine and getting trapped inside. To avoid this type of situation you should always place a normal lock or child lock on your machine, this way nothing will be able to get into the drum.

So there are your top five washing machine horror stories, if you take good care and diligence, you will not only avoid these situations but you will be able to wash your clothes with the ease of mind that they will not change colour, shrink or get trapped in the escape routes. But you should always remember that obtaining a good quality washing machine will hopefully eliminate all of the above problems.
