Yes, this is another post in which I’ll be professing my love for all things Brabantia, but just to jazz it up a bit, I’m also including Vileda today.
Laundry might not seem like the most exciting topic in the world, but when it all goes smoothly, it can really knock a good few hours off your housekeeping chores in the week…and we all know that every minute counts!
I was recently sent the wonderful Brabantia Wallfix Rotary Dryer to try. It might be heading into the Autumn days now, but we’ve still been lucky to experience some fantastic sunny days (or hours), so I’m using this while I can to dry the laundry. Tumble dryers are great inventions, but when we’ve got the weather, why not let nature do the hard work!
The Wallfix is the perfect washing line for the UK weather. It is permanently fixed to the wall and can be pulled out to use whenever you need to. It’s a great space saver, doesn’t take up any room on the lawn for the 9 months you won’t be using it and looks lovely when tucked away. It opens easily and can take quite a weight of washing. It’s a really nifty gadget which I will make my husband take down and bring with us if we ever move house.
If however, you find yourself battling with rain clouds and drizzle, why not try the Vileda Cascade (£31.99). This strong indoor 3-tier airer has 15m of drying space and has clothes hanger hooks on each corner. It has an easy opening and closing mechanism, three drying heights and foot protectors to prevent floor scratches. It can be closed up flat and stored away easily too. A great invention, that holds as many clothes as you want to dry!
Another laundry changer has been the Brabantia Laundry Bin.
This stunner doesn’t look out of place in our hallway upstairs. Bright white, with a small hole in the middle, it hides your laundry away from prying eyes but also makes throwing something in a doddle. It literally just slides into the centre. Inside is a sack, which means you can carry the goods over your shoulder down the stairs (like a rather depressing Father Christmas figure, handing out smelly socks). It can also just pop in the washing machine, so I fling it in every time to make sure it’s sweet smelling. A real beauty of a laundry bin, which is also covered by the fantastic Brabantia 10 year guarantee, meaning this will see me through a LOT of laundry.
Need something a little smaller in the kids bedrooms, or in our case in the bathroom, then why not pick up a stackable laundry box. Available in pretty much any colour going, it will fit in with any décor and can be opened from the top or from the front opening.
Brabantia and Vileda have made laundry a doddle.
