Moving into your first share house, rental or, the holy grail, newly purchased home is an exciting time in anyone’s life. Finally, the freedom to furnish as you please! Kitting out your new laundry with the right appliances is key to ensuring both you and your abode always look your best. Read on for your checklist of cleaning and laundry must-haves.
Your laundry layout will often dictate the type of washing machine you choose. For instance, small laundries suit a space-saving stacked washer and dryer, or an all-in-one washer dryer combo. The capacity of your washing machine is the other big consideration. For households of one to two people, a washing machine with a load capacity of 4-6.5kg makes sense. For larger households, look for at least 7-9kg. “Washing machines last a number of years, so be sure to factor in future use if you expect your household to grow,” advises Peter Simic, The Good Guys Buyer – Refrigeration & Laundry.
Solt 6kg Front Load Washer Perfect for a 1-2-person household, its 15 types of washing programs help you optimise the setting with each wash. Plus, with a 4-star WELS water rating, you can save on your energy bills.
Haier 7.5kg Front Load Washer With the capacity to wash 7.5kg with each load, you can get the job done in fewer loads, making it a quick laundry day. Select the setting for best washing results with its 16 types of washing programs for a perfect clean each time.
Fisher & Paykel 8kg Front Load Washer Perfect for those larger loads (especially if you have a lot of clothes), this 9kg Washer comes with 9 types of washing programs and helps you select the setting for the best washing result.
Bosch 9kg Front Load Washer Along with its 14 wash program setting, this white Bosch Washer has a high spin speed, allowing you to shorten your drying time by extracting more water from your clothes.
For apartment dwellers, renters or regular users, consider an energy-saving heat pump dryer. It doesn’t create hot air or moisture outside, so is perfect for small rooms that lack windows or extraction fans. “Look for the Energy Star Rating when comparing different models – more stars means more savings on power bills,” says Peter Simic.
Westinghouse 4.5kg Vented Dryer Clever anti-tangle, reverse tumbling means even drying (and no knickers in knots), and the optional wall mounting kit will free up valuable floor space.
Electrolux 6kg Sensor Dryer A dryer that is affordable (perfect if you’re on a budget), it is perfect for a household with 1-2 people. With its 10 types of wash programs, you can pick the right setting that’s perfect for your clothes.
Hisense 8kg Heat Pump Dryer This heat pump dryer is perfect for taking on more difficult jobs such as drying towels or bed linens. Its neat and modern design makes it the perfect dryer that will seamlessly fit into any home.
Solt 8kg Heat Pump Dryer This heat pump dryer is perfect for drying fabrics more carefully and efficiently, protecting your clothes (as well as your energy bills).
Ironing is no-one’s favourite chore, but a well-chosen iron or garment steamer will ensure that you – and your clothes – impress on first dates and job interviews. An iron with multiple fabric settings will be a match for any outfit, while garment steamers are a winner for compact laundries – no ironing board required!

LG AK Kompressor Aqua Handstick Vacuum A handstick that can both vacuum and mop makes cleaning easy, and the best part is it lets you do both at the same time.
