    Add extra clothes to your washing machine


    Found a stray sock on the floor after a wash has already started? Not to worry, some models will let you pause a program after it’s begun so you can add any items that have been accidentally left behind.


    Keeps life convenient

    Ever put a wash on only to find you dropped something on the way to the machine? Don’t sweat – just pop the door open and add it in. Now you don’t have to wait for the next time the basket’s full to get it clean.

    Protect your pennies

    Because you can get everything cleaned in one go, you can wave goodbye to extra wash cycles for forgotten items. This means you’ll be saving some precious pennies on those utility bills. Now what’s not to love about that?

    Keep your laundry kind

    Want to do your bit for our planet? Not only will fewer washes save you some precious pennies, but it also means you’ll be using less energy and less chemicals, making your laundry days kinder to the environment. Now, whenever you pop in a stray shirt or jumper, you’ll be doing your bit to keep Mother Earth smiling.

    Get everything washed at once

    The pause function on some machines will also let you add items mid-wash. This setting stops the cycle and drains the water, letting you safely open the door. So, don’t panic if your forgot to add your lucky shirt to the machine – you’ll be suited and booted for that interview before you know it.
