Indesit WD12 washer/dryer

An unusual review, but may help someone out if they’re wanting buy a new washing machine or washer/dryer.

I like to be sure I’m buying the best appliance, so I was disappointed when I found independent reviews on washing machines are few and far between. So this is my contribution to the washing masses!
With my credit card full and not enough cash in the bank, I was limited to choosing a machine from one the catalogues I’ve got going. So this one came from Great Universal and cost £389. I went for this one as it had the best energy rating as well as other good settings and things. And it came in silver.
The best things about it that the cheaper ones didn’t have, is an anti-crease setting and the economy wash – done in half an hour – which is brilliant for me, as I’m always forgetting to put in the things I need in the main wash.
The other bit of information I couldn’t find, is why do people buy a washing machine and tumble dryer, when you can get the two combined. The general feeling seemed to be that the tumble dryer is better, but no-one knew why. So I’m here to fill you in on the mystery; having previously had one stacked on top of the other. So, I have found out that a tumble dryer certainly dries quicker than a spin dryer. Also, it’s best if you get the washing out straight after drying so that the air can evaporate. When I leave it on overnight, it sometimes comes out a bit damp.
If you do choose this model, please note that the instructions are not clear on how to use the washing machine bit, without using the dryer bit. For a while (it was summer, so I was hanging it out on the line) I thought – this is great, my washing is coming out really hot and almost dry! Unfortunately it did shrink a couple of jumpers though. Then I realised the dryer was coming on straight afterwards because the dryer knob was turned onto a setting. You have to make sure it’s pointing upwards. D’oh! I’d just assumed that the dryer would need a different On button, but no.
So, I hope this has been of help.

ps. At first I was disappointed as my washing was coming out dirty still, but later I realised that it was because I’d changed to Fairy. (it was all they had in the conveniant little shop on my way home). Once I’d gone back to my usual Sainsbury’s Perform + Protect, it was fine, and I’ve had no compaints washing-wise. So the moral is: expensive is not always the best!

Boots No 7 LIFT & luminate Day cream review
March 8, 2017
For me there’s a fine line between looking young and dewy, and looking fat and sweaty. This is the problem of having a round chubby face, and I’ve always gone as matte as possible with my make-up to avoid the second scenario as much as possible. However, as Boots no7 changed the formula of their Protect and Perfect Day cream, and I wasn’t as impressed as I was with their older version, I thought I would try out this one, which is part of their new Lift & Luminate range…..
Dorling Kindersley Fashion book review
The book you must buy if you’re interested in Fashion – the ultimate book of costume and style Published by DK Dorling Kindersley – Book review
October 30, 2017
Everything about the cover of this book is misleading, and unfortunately you will find it in bookshops with a cellophane wrapper so you may not be able to look inside. With only the word ‘Fashion’ in bold pink letters on the spine, and a modern slim-fitting dress flocked on the front, you would be forgiven for thinking this is a book about modern fashion. You’d be wrong…
Tarte eyeshadow palette review
A review of the Tarte Tarteist Amazonian Clay eyeshadow palette
November 14, 2017
I am constantly on the hunt for a matte eyeshadow palette, and if I see one, I will probably buy it! I honestly don’t know why they aren’t more popular, because I just cannot get on with an ordinary eye shadow! I had a little splurge on make-up a couple of years ago and talked about my issues with the No7 eyeshadows and the Maybelline eyeshadows that I bought. They simply do not look good on me and the pigmentation is rubbish. I decided it was about time I stopped faffing about with mid-range High Street make-up and actually spend some money….
