A portable washer, or washing machine as it is more commonly referred to, is an essential part of any home. We all need to wash our clothes, and although some portable washers are obscenely priced, it is possible to purchase one with a reasonable price tag attached. It all depends on your requirements. For example, if you have a large family, then a small portable washer isn’t really going to fit your needs, as you are going to have to use it more often, meaning that your electricity and water bills will sky rocket. Let’s take a look at some of your options.
First, you may want to consider a product like the GE – Spacemaker 3.1 Cu. Ft. 14-Cycle Extra-Large Capacity Portable Washer. This is especially true if you have a large family, and a lot of laundry on a daily basis. This portable washer features three wash or rinse temperature settings. This means that you can control the temperature for different materials so you won’t end up shrinking your clothes. There is also a control lock on this portable washer, which is very handy if you have young children who like to explore, as it disables all of the buttons. Now, this all sounds great, but it does come with a hefty price tag of seven hundred and ninety nine dollars. This will vary in different retailers, but you probably won’t get it for a much cheaper price.
The next portable washer to look at is the considerably cheaper Avanti W798SS. At only three hundred dollars, this portable washer already has an advantage to the previous mentioned. Although this portable washer is compact, it has a large loading capacity, meaning that you can do a lot of laundry all at once. It also has two separate inlets for hot and cold water, and a rust proof base meaning that your portable washer will last a lot longer than those that don’t have such protection. It has multiple wash settings so that you can control the way that you wash your clothes without having to worry about them shrinking due to the wrong temperature. It has a very easy to read digital display, so that even those with poor vision will be able to use it with no problems at all.
Whatever it is that you require, there will be a portable washer to fit your needs. There are, however, a few things to consider. Firstly, do you have young children around the house? If so, then you are going to want to consider purchasing a portable washer with child proof features. Children are inquisitive and will try and open it, so it is best to keep them out of harm’s way. The next thing to bear in mind is the amount of laundry that you do on a daily basis. If it is not much, then a small portable washer will easily fit your needs. However, if you have a large family, then you are going to need a bigger portable washer. If you try to use a smaller one then you are going to have to do lots of laundry meaning that your utility bills are eventually going to be higher.
The final thing to consider, of course, is the price. Don’t over spend for a well known brand, just because of the brand name. You should shop around to try and find a portable washer that fits your budget, as well as your needs. There are some very reasonably priced portable washers by brands that are not well known, that will do the job just as well as a more expensive version.
