I’ve had my Maytag Bravos XL for a little over 2 months now and the time we’ve spent doing laundry has literally been cut drastically. I used to despise the piles of laundry that would build up but now it has become a much less daunting task. My Maytag Bravos can do double the amount of laundry in half the amount of time it used to take me. Instead of having to do laundry nearly every day, we can get all of it done in one day!
On top of being able to do less loads because of the capacity of the Maytag Bravos XL, they have also taken the guesswork out of choosing the best laundry settings for the different types of dirty laundry. Each of the settings get our clothes clean, lift the stains, not only do they do it well but efficiently too. I love the Cold Wash Cycle because it cleans our laundry with energy saving cold water and gets out some of the toughest stains. My daughter is always getting red juice stains on her clothes and I don’t like to use stain removers on her clothing because of her sensitive toddler skin and honestly sometimes I just forget to pre-treat stains but our Maytag Bravos have gotten even the toughest juice stains out with a deep clean cold cycle!
I also really love the bulky cycle, I would never have been able to clean our duvet in our washer and blankets would come out cleaner but not nearly as clean and fresh smelling as I would have liked them to. The bulky cycle has changed that and I can get all our large blankets and duvets clean!
Remember when I told you how long it used to take to get our laundry dry with our old dryer? Well, that is a problem NO MORE! Our Maytag Bravos XL dryer takes care of all the timing settings for different types of laundry loads. That means, I’m not either over drying and wasting energy or under drying and having to continually adjust the time and re-check it to make sure its dry. I just set the dial to the type of laundry load and hit start. Every time our laundry has been completely dry and ready to be folded.
The auto-refresh steam cycle has also come to be very handy, if a shirt happens to get wrinkled (which happens alot in our house) you can throw it in on a auto refresh cycle and it will come out steamed and wrinkle free.
The Maytag Bravos use 76% less water and 78% less energy. We’ve already recieved one of our energy bills and it has been significantly reduced. The only thing I can account that savings to is our Maytag Bravos XL because we haven’t made any new energy savings changes elsewhere in our lives. We have yet to get a new water bill since they have been in use but I’m excited to see some savings there as well!
What is your least favorite thing about laundry? How do you think the features of the Maytag Bravos XL could help ease the burden of doing laundry for you?
