Introducing my two new best friends…

Meet Mr. and Mrs. Frigidaire Affinity. Since they arrived on Tuesday, we’ve been spending quality time getting to know and appreciate one another and honestly, I cannot think of 2 friends that could make my life easier than these babies!

Last November I was chosen to be a Frigidaire Test Drive Mom, and THANK YOU Frigidaire a million times for that. I’ve been awaiting the arrival of the new electric blue front loading washer/dryer set since then and I’m so glad the anticipation is over and they have come to be mine for ever and ever!

This is a pretty pathetic accurate representation of what we’ve been up to this week at our house  – washing everything in sight just to watch it tumble! My boys love them almost as much as I do! And seriously, I can now wash at home so many things I took to the laundromat before – quilts/blankets, hand washables, bras, the list goes on and on.

My new Frigidaire washer has been put to the test this week and it has performed so nicely by being quiet and not complaining with any loud thunking or other annoying washer noises. They’re both so quiet I cannot hear either appliance running unless I’m in the same room. That’s heaven.

Besides the noise level, the other thing I noticed in my first week getting acquainted with Mr. and Mrs. Affinity is that my dark loads come out completely rinsed and clean looking. With my top loading washer, the detergent NEVER got completely rinsed out and I was constantly having to rewash or rinse a handful of items.

I am so looking forward to doing laundry with my Frigidaire appliances and sharing the fabulous results. Stay tuned for some great laundry tips and reasons to love Frigidaire Affinity!

To say that I’m jealous would be a drastic understatement.

Keep us posted as I’m in the market for a front-load washer & dryer. Lucky you ~ a test driver!

I will definitely keep writing about my satisfaction with it. The other day I was in the dining room which is right next to our laundry room and I kept hearing this noise that I thought was a hose running outside. I couldn’t figure out why our hose would be turning off and on, but it was just a really quiet and soft watery noise. It was the washer…I forgot I had started a load and the idea that the noise might have been the washer took a long time to cross my mind!
