I Can Finally Get Everything Done In One Day

October 13, 2017

Thank you Samsung for sponsoring this post!

When I think about all the fun things I enjoy doing as a mom I can make a laundry list of activities. Super squishy hugs, and warm wet kisses are by far the best! Then comes other things such as tickles that make you kick and holler, loud laughs that make you cry, piggy back rides that hurt your knees, puzzles, coloring, going to the pumpkin patch, birthday parties, singing our favorite songs on repeat, watching the fireworks, building snow men, opening gifts, roller skating, building sand castles at the beach, chasing down the icecream truck, movie nights, bedtime stories and … seriously I could go on.

You know what’s not on this laundry list of fun things? Laundry. The one chore most moms end up doing because if we don’t do them, who will do it? Yea my husband could do it, but will he do it right? While laundry doesn’t ever make my fun list, I do enjoy my laundry time with my little ones. They are at that age right now (3 and 5), where they genuinely love helping me out with anything I’m doing — cooking, dishes, putting groceries away, making the beds and they love to help with the laundry. Elle especially wants to help me with every step and I’m secretly counting down the years until she can do all of our laundry on her own. She likes to load the laundry, add the detergent (with supervision of course) close the door and press the buttons. If I try to help her out in any way she gets a big attitude. Who does she think she is?

I recently got the Samsung FlexWash + FlexDry duo and for the first time in my life I’ve felt like I’ve had a home appliance that lets me be great. Between rushing the kids to school, TaeKwonDo practice, ballet lessons, swimming lessons, gymnastics practice, work, home work, grocery shopping, cooking and family time, there’s just never enough hours in the day to tackle all of my family’s laundry needs, and with two small children the messes they get into just don’t make any sense. Seriously, why do  you always have to wear your food?

The Samsung FlexWash top loader is perfect for small and delicate loads

Just imagine you pick up your son from TaeKwonDo practice and his uniform is covered in red gatorade stains. He needs the uniform for practice tomorrow. What do you do? Do you really throw a uniform in the wash all by itself? I sure do! The FlexWash + FlexDry machines are equipped with two washers and two dryers in one!  Do you know what kind of mountains I can move with two washers and two dryers?

I can surely move my family’s mountain of laundry faster that’s for sure. I’m so fortunate to have immediate access to a washer and dryer when I need it but the Samsung FlexWash + FlexDry duo aren’t like any other washer and dryer I’ve ever laid eyes on. Let me say this again, these machines have two washers and two dryers in one. This means I can load the large capacity lower washer with those large loads that have been piling up while for two, three, four weeks (#dontjudgeme) while taking care of that stained uniform in the top load compartment at the same exact time! Or when I have a very small load of whites and a big bulky load of towels. I can separate them appropriately to ensure my different types of clothes get the best possible care from wash to dry. As the self proclaimed queen of multitasking that I am, these machines have transcended my life to a new place.

Pinky took a bath in the FlexWash and now it’s time to dry in the FlexDry

Gone are the days of the all-day-back-to- back laundry loads and hello to better days that are spent washing laundry more efficiently. Oh and I can control my FlexWash + FlexDry machines with my smartphone using the Samsung Smart Home app – handy for when you’re cooking and helping with homework and you always lose track of your laundry times, like me. I turn around and realized that I was supposed to unload, load and reload both my dryer and machine almost an hour ago! I then spend about 20 minutes agonizing over that time I lost. I’m not the only one that feels this way right? Worry no more, the Samsung Smart Home App sends me an alert when the cycle is complete and also allows me to schedule cycles.

After I’ve said all that, let me show you how these bad boys or shall I say bad girls work!

    Very nice! I love the set and that you daughter (cute as a button) is helping you with laundry.

    Doing the laundry is no joke. This is the reason why so many people in this generation prefer to outsource the task to laundry service companies. They would rather pay for the service than do the household task themselves and invest in a really durable and high quality machine.

      When i lived in Brooklyn I dropped off and picked up my laundry because it was more convenient than sitting in the laundry mat all damn day. But Im thankful to have a home now, out in the burbs. So now my basement is the laundry mat. LOL

    Wow! I have never seen such a useful washer and dryer! Those extras can make a difference when you need to save time! Think about all the multi-tasking!! If only it could hang them in the closet too!

    I’m a lucky lady I guess because my hubby is king of laundry and he even folds in the same evening. I wish we had our own machines in our apartment but there’s no space and the community machines suck! The idea that you can control yours with an app, sounds dreamy and I’m sure it’s such a relief to be able to use your time more productively.

    I am so envious! I would love to be able to wash two separate loads at once. Actually having two dryer options would be even more ideal.

      You can totally have that with these. The top dryer is for small loads and it gets the job done.

    My husband and I are in the market for a new washer and dryer. I kid you not, when the washer spins, it sounds like a freight train. I’ve walked by these at Lowe’s but will have to stop and take a closer look. Who knew they could do so much? Very cool. x

    I could use that! I have 5 kids so I try to do a load every day… but I don’t! I normally let it pile up and invite my mom over to babysit (I swear she has a magic wand and get 4 loads done in 20 minutes!) For some reason, she loves laundry and I didn’t get that gene!

      Wow 5 kids! You’ve definitely got your hands full. The idea of doing a load of laundry every day sounds crazy to me! Get the kids to help. Elle and Joel sort their laundry – whites in this basket, colors in that one, and towels/linen in here. Then all I have to do is load it up and even still Elle demands to do it. So then I just have to load the detergent and softener. *Winning!* (and she 3, joel is 5)

    My kids love to help me with laundry, too! With 5 kids, I bet you have so much laundry to do!

    I can so relate! I’m starting to think my dirty clothes are reproducing the longer I leave them alone!

    The right tools make all the difference! Those look really awesome.
