This is a sponsored post. I was compensated for my work, but my opinions are 100% my own.
This story is called “There and Back Again” or “I Have a Laundry Problem.”
It’s laundry day. I put a load of clothes in the washer and then transfer them to the dryer. After emptying the dryer, I fill it up with another load of dirty clothes. When it’s finished running, I try to move that load over to the dryer and… the dryer is still working.
No problem, I think to myself. I will just come back in an hour and switch things out. An hour turns to three, which turns to overnight (or over the weekend). When I finally open the washer to switch out the laundry, the putrid stench of musty wet clothes hits me smack in the olfactory system. A cup of vinegar goes into a hot water cycle to get the already clean clothes re-cleaned. What should have been a 2 hour job is now on its 4th day. WHYYYYYYY???
But I have a solution: High end kitchens have dual ovens, why shouldn’t laundry rooms have dual dryers?
Load A is washed in the washer and moved to the top dryer for drying. Load B goes into the washer.
The now clean Load B is moved to the bottom dryer for drying. Load C goes into the available washer.
By the time Load C is ready to come out of the washer, Load A is ready to come out of the dryer.
NO WAITING TO MOVE CLOTHES FROM THE WASHER TO THE DRYER. The end.
Genius, I know.
