Doing the laundry may seem like a fairly straight-forward household chore. After all, all you really need to do is throw your clothes into your washer or dryer and let the machine do all the work, right? Well technically that’s true… but if we approached every task with the mind-set of only doing what’s necessary, it leaves little room for greatness.
It’s when you go the extra mile with your laundry that you can really notice the difference. Whether it’s making more eco-friendly choices, the softness of your clothes or the ease of the task itself that you care most about, we couldn’t approve enough of someone wanting to improve their washing and drying habits. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of 6 accessories for washers and dryers worth the cash, to help you take your laundry game to the next level.
The Ecoegg Range
Kicking things off with the perfect product to keep your laundry clean, soft and smelling great without the need for harmful chemicals is the Ecoegg range. The range includes both Laundry Eggs and Dryer Eggs available in Fresh Linen and Spring Blossom scents, as well as a Fragrance-Free option. These egg-cellent accessories are truly eco-friendly, from the time and energy they save on a drying cycle to the packaging they come in. We even tried them out for ourselves, and the results are in – it’s not too good to be true after all! So, if you’re wanting a more environmentally conscious but no less effective alternative to detergents and softeners, then look no further.
Washing Machine Cleaner & Descaler
It’s easy to only focus on the laundry when washing and drying your clothes whilst forgetting about the machine itself. However, if your washing machine doesn’t get cleaned regularly too, it simply won’t do the job it was built for quite so well. Our Washing Machine & Dishwasher Cleaner & Descaler is perfect for leaving your washing machine spick and span, ready to take on the next load coming its way. It also works just as well for dishwashers, and who doesn’t love a good multi-purpose product?
Laundry Delicates Wash Bag
Fed up with your best clothes and sheets losing their quality after only a few washes? Our Delicates Wash Bag has got your laundry covered – literally. Protecting your delicates during a cycle, this wash bag provides just the right amount of space to allow clothes to move around enough for a good clean without getting damaged. Ideal for tights, bras, socks and clothes with embroidery, this accessory means you can say goodbye to damaged delicates and hello to long-lasting and well-protected garments! Plus, it will stop small items from getting stuck in your machine meaning no more lost socks – bonus!
On the topic of careful washing, it’s not uncommon for laundry items to get stuck in your washing machine drum during a cycle. Watch our video below to learn how to remove them, should this ever happen to you.
Washer/Dryer Anti-Vibration Mat
The noise and vibrations emitted by washers and dryers are arguably the most irritating aspects of doing laundry. So much so that many people often go out of their way to find the least disruptive times of the day for their washing and drying cycles. Well, with our Washer/Dryer Anti-Vibration Mat, that can be a thing of the past. Not only does the mat reduce noise, but it also helps to protect your flooring from gradual vibration damage. And, if the mat isn’t quite the right size for your appliance, we also have Washer/Dryer Anti-Vibration Feet. These are made to fit snugly under the feet of your washer or dryer for the same purpose.
Universal Washing Machine & Tumble Dryer Stacking Kit
Space-saving and aesthetically pleasing, the Universal Washing Machine And Tumble Dryer Stacking Kit is made to raise your laundry organisation up a level. Allowing you to stack one machine on top of another to save room in your home, this stacking kit comes with a built-in shelf, making it a two-in-one accessory. The shelf can be used to help you when loading and unloading and is ideal for folding your laundry right next to your washer and dryer with ease. And the best part? It’s universal, so it’s suitable for most appliances from different manufacturers with a standard width of 60cm.
Universal Appliance Rollers
This final pick might not relate to doing laundry itself, but it is a very handy tool for occasions when you need to move your washer or dryer from one place to another. Whether you’re moving house or just wanting to re-jig your home layout, washers and dryers are not easy appliances to move. Fortunately, Universal Appliance Rollers are here to support you – and your washer/dryer, of course. Suitable for appliances of up to 80kg, these rollers make moving hefty household items and objects a walk in the park.
