Washing Delicates Like a Pro in a GE Washer

October 18, 2018

Raise your hand if you put your laundry in two piles: whites and everything else. This is of course a very daring and reckless way of doing laundry, but it is also a surprisingly common one.  If you don’t take the time to separate your dirty clothes before throwing them in the washer, you’ll find out the hard way that dark colors can bleed onto lighter clothes and also how easily shreddable those delicate delicates really can be.

Luckily, GE washers prove just how little of a hassle washing your clothes can be. Especially when it comes to thoroughly washing the most fragile of delicate garments like your great great great great grandmother’s handkerchief that she let Abraham Lincoln blow his nose on during the Civil War. GE Washers are prepared to handle it all with these tough, yet gentle, washing features.

 

  1. Steam Assist Feature

Steam not only looks magical, it is magical. If deeply cleaning fabric fibers and loosening stains isn’t magic, we don’t know what is. The Steam Assist feature is a great technique to use on your delicate laundry because it’s tough on stains without hurting or ripping your important items apart. Use this GE washer treatment when you want to get out some mysterious stain that needs some special magic to get it out.

 

  1. Precision Dispense Feature

Other than having an efficient wash, GE washers now have the ability to slowly release detergent throughout a wash cycle with the Precision Dispense feature. Normal washing machines immediately release all of the detergent from their dispenser when you start the cycle, but GE washers know that better cleaning performance for delicates happens when the detergent you added splits into smaller doses throughout the wash cycle so that the load continues to stay soapy.

  1. Delicates Feature

If you are really at a loss for what to do with all your fair clothes, GE washers happen to come equipped with a delicates feature, which automatically takes the guesswork out of what you need to do. But if you feel that you want to tweak with the way the delicates feature washes, you also have the ability to change specific settings, such as the amount of water, temperature, and speed of your cycle. Customize your delicates cycle just the way you feel fits your needs.

 

No one should ever feel helpless when it comes to doing their laundry. That’s why we’re proud to sell GE washers here: because they make washing clothes easy yet sophisticated. It’s important that you have an appliance that is built to handle the toughest grime, while also being able to destroy dirt thoroughly and gently on your most delicate of materials.

3 Ways to Make S’mores Indoors with a GE Gas Range for Toasted Marshmallow Day

August 29, 2018

GE – 3 Ways to Make S'mores Indoors

S’mores are the pinnacle of camping trips. Sometimes it seems like the purpose of camping out is just to eat gooey and fluffy roasted marshmallows. But, have you ever thought about making s’mores inside your house? Before you shout “Blasphemy!” just think about it.  You won’t get bit by hundreds of blood sucking mosquitos and there won’t be a need to continuously lather your body in sunblock.

Plus, we aren’t asking you to start a bonfire in your living room. Just you and your GE gas range making magic. S’mores whenever you want? What a time to be alive.

So, with that said, put your skewers down and get cooking with these easy oven-based s’mores!

Ingredients:

  • Marshmallows
  • Chocolate bars
  • Graham Crackers
  • Nutella

S’more in a pan

Using the GE Range Oven

Start off by preheating your GE Oven Broiler. That’s probably the most difficult task you’ll have to do. Making s’mores in a pan is so easy, a two-year-old could do it. Seriously.

Take your pan and lay as many graham cracker squares as you want inside it. Put a piece of chocolate and then a marshmallow on top of each graham cracker square. Place the pan in the oven and when the marshmallows start looking golden brown, remove them. Place a square piece of graham cracker on the marshmallow and you instantly have the perfect s’more.

Make it a pie

Using the GE Range Oven

If you’re feeling extra adventurous, turn your Toasty s’more into a yummy pie! Again, it’s a rather simple recipe, but one worth trying out. After turning your broiler on, take out a pie pan and slather Nutella at the bottom of it. Add marshmallows, stick it in the oven for a couple minutes, and it’s all set for dipping your graham crackers in!

If you’re missing the camping life and want to make a s’more the “correct” way, you can always use one of the burners of your GE gas range. Use a skewer, or even a chopstick if you don’t have one, and place the marshmallow on the tip of it. You know how the rest goes: Toast your mallow to your desired level, put the melty goo ball on the graham cracker square, place a chocolate piece on top, and sandwich it perfectly with another graham cracker square.

It may not be as exciting as making a s’more out in the wild, but at least the GE gas range doesn’t make your clothes smell like a smoky campfire.

Have a favorite recipe? Tried something new? We would love to hear all about it! Stop by our store today and let us know how your indoor s’more turned out.

If you can’t reuse It, refuse it. 
That’s the newest slogan for World Environment Day, happening on June 5th. They’re taking action and bringing awareness to environmental issues so that people will see the many troubles our world faces and start protecting it from becoming a toxic wasteland.

It may not seem like you’re doing anything since you’re just washing your clothes, but you’d be surprised to know just how energy efficient GE Washers are.
Less water and less energy
If there’s one thing that people tend to use a lot of, it’s energy and water. A few ways we overdo it are when washing dishes, leaving the sink water going while brushing our teeth, letting the shower water run until it’s warm enough to hop in, and leaving the lights on in every room of the house. The waste of water is just astounding! It’s important that we stay conscious of how much water we waste in our daily life to better protect our environment, but sometimes, we all make the mistake of using more than we need. That’s why having a GE Energy Star Washing Machine in your home assists you without you even having to think about it. Basically, Energy Star clothes washers use approximately 35% less water and 35% less energy for washing than standard models. On average a GE Energy Star certified washer will save about 39,000 gallons of water in its lifetime! All you have to do is just use it and it does the the work for you. Being Eco-friendly doesn’t have to be hard when you have a GE Washer helping you out.
Time saver
You won’t just be saving water and energy with a GE Energy Star Washer, you’ll be saving time as well. If you have some clothes that need to be washed pronto, you can simply use the Time Saver feature to give you a hand. It only takes 37 minutes to clean a full load without sacrificing performance. Never feel rushed for time again when it comes to washing your clothes.
Energy Star Certified

In order to get the Energy Star approval, GE Appliances have had to prove to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency that their products are up to par with the EPA’s standards of energy efficiency. It doesn’t just stop at washing machines. GE Appliances have Energy Star certified refrigerators, dishwashers, vent hoods, freezers, and more. Some are even built with recycled material, further doing their part to clean up and protect the Earth.
