Compact Bosch Laundry Pair for the Minimalist

December 27, 2018


If you live a minimalist life, it’s probably the simple things that bring you pleasure. From a subtle grey wall to a piece of furniture that is multi-functional, being a minimalist is all about the whole, “less is more” motto. So, if that sort of lifestyle speaks to you, you probably appreciate downsizing your home in any way possible – even when it comes to your appliances.

With a Bosch compact washer and dryer, you can now do laundry quickly and efficiently without taking up a lot of space. Check out these great reasons why your inner minimalist dreams will come true after using a Bosch compact washer and dryer.

  1. Fit It Anywhere

The Bosch Compact laundry pairs are each 24 inches, making them much smaller than your average washer and dryer. Because of their condensed size, you can fit them almost anywhere in your home! If you have a tiny place, these laundry appliances will be the perfect addition and will never make your home feel cramped. Not to mention, they can also be stacked on top of each other, giving you even more possibilities.

  1. Control from Your Phone

If you have minimalist tendencies, you probably like to stay organized, especially when it comes to your home’s upkeep. With the Home Connect App, you’ll not only be able to keep an eye on your laundry cycles from afar, you’ll also be able to start a wash or dry cycle with a quick touch of a button on your phone.

You’ll also find that having the Home Connect app on your phone can help you keep up with your daily chores, so you don’t fall behind. For example, instead of forgetting about your clothes after running them through a wash cycle, your phone will now be able to notify you when your clothes are done! You can say goodbye to stale-smelling clothes that have been left in the washer too long. This app is simple and functional, which is exactly what the minimalist doctor ordered.

  1. Eco-Friendly

A Bosch compact washer and dryer are more than just fashionable appliances, they’re also made for a good cause.

How to Remove Coffee Stains with an Electrolux Washer

August 16, 2018

Spilled Coffee And Office Worker Sitting On The Desk

If you’re like 83 percent of Americans, you love to partake in a good ol’ cup of coffee every morning. And if you enjoy this tasty wake up beverage, you’ll understand the complete frustration when one of your garments gets stained by an unexpected bump in the road on the way to work. It’s either goodbye forever to your outfit, or to your time, because scrubbing out coffee isn’t always a quick fix.

Because it’s such a common problem and a complete inconvenience to get out a stain, Electrolux washers have multiple features that can ensure your stains are removed, so you can continue to enjoy your favorite clothes for as long as possible.

Check out the awesome technology that makes Electrolux the perfect washing machine for all your stain removing needs.


Dumping detergent directly on your clothes can lead to uneven washing and if you use dry detergent, some of it always clumps to pieces of laundry and leaves your clothes feeling a bit chalky. Instead, the Electrolux washer provides an adaptive dispenser that lets you put the detergent directly in the compartment, mixes it with water, and then releases it on your clothes. This combination maximizes the cleaning power of the detergent and makes for an extremely strong stain removal.

Perfect Steam

Electrolux washers may just look like regular washing machines, but in reality, they’re pretty fancy cleaning machines. Unlike many washers which produce steam from the top, the Perfect Steam feature allows hot steam to rise from the bottom of the drum, gently lifting dirt and stains from the fibers.

The steam effectively brings out dirt and stains and washes them all away. You’ll be searching for any sign of a stain, but because the Perfect Steam feature on the Electrolux washer is so good, you won’t find anything.

Stain Soak

Stain Remover Experiment, Before and After Washing

From coffee to wine, you can stain your clothes and other materials with quite a lot of things. With the Stain Soak setting on the Electrolux Washer, you can treat a variety of these stains in just the touch of a button.

This feature uses a special stain removal detergent, sets the wash to a precise temperature, tumbling action, and amount of time, which is refined and optimized for your specific stain. No more treating a stain the wrong way – just throw in your stained laundry and click the correct stain setting! You’ll be rid of stains in a snap without having to put out any effort or time.

Having an Electrolux Washer with stain removing features makes life easier. With one, you’ll be able to do the things you want, instead of wasting time trying to scrub out a tough stain. And you can always count on your stained clothes to be washed gently, so they are never ruined from such intense cleanings.

Visit your local Famous Tate store to view an Electrolux Washer in person and get more information about its settings. Trust us, we love to talk about all things Electrolux! If you’re in the 83 percent of coffee drinkers, you’ll always want one of these little helpers by your side.

5 Things You Should Never Put in Your Whirlpool Dryer

August 10, 2018


Being dry is important.

No matter if it’s your laundry, a newly painted bench, or your clothes after getting off a water ride when you still have a whole day left at the amusement park, staying dry is quite important.

And that’s why dryers are important. And no matter which Whirlpool dryer you have at home — Maybe you just purchased Whirlpool’s Front Load Electric Dryer  – there are some things you should always remember not to put in your dryer.

We’re looking at you Robby: You know why you lost your dryer privileges. Don’t be like Robby. Instead, learn from this practical list and keep your dryer happy for years to come.

  1. Gum

Gum is great for many things, like chewing, blowing bubbles, or sticking under tables and chairs at the movie theater. It is not great for clothes that are going through the laundry.

It’s best practice to go through each pocket of every article of clothing before putting them in the washer or dryer. (Why? Then you won’t pull out your FAVORITE PAIR OF PANTS ROBBY, THEY WERE MY FAVORITE PAIR OF PANTS, only to find out that SOMEONE left a pack of gum in them and now that gum has melted and permanently joined, stained, and become one with what used to be your favorite pair of pants.)

  1. Sandy things

So, you just returned from a wonderful trip to the beach, and now you have a whole bunch of sandy beach towels. Of course, it just makes sense to throw them in the dryer to shake the extra sand out. Right? Riiiight?

WRONG ROBBY. Sand can really mess up your dryer, so don’t do that. No sand in the dryer. None. It can actually get trapped in the inner workings of the dryer, which can do damage to your machine. We don’t want that, and you don’t want that either.

Also, for a bonus tip: Don’t put bathing suits in your Whirlpool dryer either: It will stretch out the fibers. You’re welcome.

  1. Brassieres

Bras and the heat of the dryer just don’t play well together. They aren’t friends, they don’t call each other back, they don’t share LEGOs, they don’t play in the sand box, and they totally don’t eat at the same lunch table.

If you want to keep buying bras over and over again, sure, throw them in the dryer. If not, stick with hang drying them, which will work toward keeping them alive as long as possible.

  1. Rubber-backed bath mats

While they may be great to dry your feet on when you get out of the shower – and keep you from falling and slipping on the bathroom floor – rubber-backed bath mats are best left to dry on their own, instead of placing them inside your Whirlpool dryer.

We’ve heard some stories. And while they weren’t exactly “Goosebumps” levels of horror, we still wouldn’t recommend seeing what happens if you put a bath mat in the dryer.

  1. Animals


Come on now. Yes, while this may come as a surprise to some people, but you really shouldn’t put your pets in the dryer. No, not even if they are wet, Robby. Dry them off with a towel. Anything but putting them in the dryer.

Now, the internet is mixed on whether it is OK to put plush, stuffed animals in the dryer. Some places say yes, but some say no. Let’s just say we wouldn’t trust our personal collection of stuffed animals in there. Better safe than sorry when it comes to Mr. Fluffy.
