Laundry services vs home washing machine?
« on: March 15, 2021, 03:58:24 PM »
Between laundry vs owning a washing machine which one is more cost efficient? I am living with my husband and we are washing our clothes by going to the laundry shop. We are doing laundry once per week but sometimes we need to go twice if i have more things to wash. Per wash is like RM7on average. I just thought is it better to have your own washing machine?

personally for me it's better la to have ur own washing machine so u can save ur time. because let's say if u go by grab or what then u have to pay them. then u need to pay for laundry.. leceh laa

using a washing machine at home is definitely more hygienic and safe for the kids than going to the dobby

especially if you have babies, their clothes must be kept clean and requires extra care

hihi ofcc. but they have new features which is active foam that trigger it to creates more foam along with their blue ag. so I think it's very suitable for people that often go outside and have babies cause it helps a lot. I've seen some reviews as well

the detergent turns into foam before washing which result in less undissolved detergent becomes attached to clothes and extra clean laundry

Depends on your wash, but from my experience this washing machine only take about 30 minutes. Even full load only take about 38 minutes.
