We are leaving for a huge family trip tomorrow. There are only four of us but it’s an 11-day trip with 4 different changes of venue and it’s on land and sea, in a completely different climate than where we live. There’s been a lot of planning and packing and unearthing of summer clothes.
We leave for our first ever Disney Social Media Mom’s Conference and we’re thrilled but it’s been, seriously, between minus 10 degrees and the 50 degrees it was yesterday. Midwest weather is varied; you can get four seasons in one day if you play your cards right. I checked the weather in Orlando and it’s going to be a solid 87 all week, to a Midwesterner, that roughly translates into about 100 degrees.
The girls have been packed for months. No lie. Tweens get excited and determined and there is no stopping them. Of course, I drive them mad because packing is something I like to do the night before. I’ve done enough traveling in my lifetime that I can pack for a month in about 2 hours but my girls weren’t having it so I had to pack last weekend (I’ve already forgotten what I’ve packed). I also went through their bags and to my dismay found too much of somethings and not one of the vital necessities.
Since they packed in October, they’ve just been adding to the pile (the one that grew atop their actual suitcases) which turned into emergency clothes when they needed them. Basically, they packed and then have been pulling from the luggage for the past few weeks. Their luggage is like a fridge that has a whole bunch of food but none of it goes together to make an actual meal. It was especially missing a couple vital components; undergarments, socks and the vital summer clothes that I had not yet unearthed from the attic.
All the laundry is done. I hate to travel and leave behind a house in disarray and I definitely don’t want to return to laundry. But as I opened the luggage last night to put a couple items into another suitcase because yes, there is separate luggage for each of the 4 venues, I found they had once again pulled from the luggage. So tonight I have to do one last load of towels and a few loads of delicates because underwear, bras and socks for 11 days for 4 people is a lot. And while you can certainly wash socks and underwear with towels, throwing bras in the mix would be a bad idea unless you don’t mind twisting up and ripping up your expensive delicates. This will take more time than I wanted to spend on this task because of having to wash separately. Now, only if there was a way to do them separately at the same time without having to go to a laundromat. Wait. Do they even still have those?
Anyways, there is. LG has a twin washing system. What does that mean? It means I could wash a giant load of towels, undies and socks while also watching my more delicates in a separate load simultaneously. WHAT?? HOW??
The LG SideKick! The ingenious LG SideKick pedestal washer can be added to almost any LG front load washer to tackle two loads of laundry — both large and small — at the same time.
This is perfect for those small loads that are a big deal. LG SideKick is discretely styled with a concealed control panel, it not only functions as a secondary washer but also raises your front-loading washer to a comfortable height and matches the pedestal beneath your LG dryer.
- 1.0 cu. ft. capacity is just the right size for cleaning smaller loads as often as you need.
- Delicates, hand washables, and workout wear get the special care they deserve. Or that late Sunday night uniform shirt that was on the floor on the other side of the bed and has to be clean for Monday morning.
- The LG direct drive motor has fewer moving parts for greater efficiency, plus a 10-year warranty
- Magnetic remote control offers a convenient way to start, stop, or select a cycle.
The innovative LG TWIN Wash is all about efficiency, helping you get more clothes cleaner in less time. With a combined capacity of up to 6.6 cu. ft., the TWIN Wash boasts an ergonomically elevated and angled door that makes loading and unloading easier. Plus, the LED control panel is located on the door, right at your fingertips.
- TurboWash 2.0 feature saves up to 30 minutes on larger loads with outstanding cleaning performance
- TurboSteam technology deeply penetrates fabrics for greater cleaning power
- The full-width lid helps prevent spills thanks to an easy-to-fill detergent tray with recessed design
This is the best of both worlds and perfect for busy moms who need to multitask to get all the things done. I want this system for my home. If I had it, I could do both loads at the same time and use my time for other things. The LG Twin Wash system which includes LG Front Load laundry paired with LG’s SideKick Pedestal Washer is available at Best Buy
Not only do these washers have mega capacity to tackle any size load, they are energy efficient while giving you the best cleaning performance. Clean clothes that are convenient and good for the environment.
