If you have a three year old, you’ve probably wished at some point for a magic #2 button on your washing machine that could quickly and easily make potty training messes disappear. That was my wish this morning at 8:55 a.m. when we were running late for school and I heard from the front room “mom, I have poop on my finger.”
I closed my eyes, took a breath and tried to collect myself before entering the room to assess the mess, which is an understatement. There was no time to salvage his Lightening McQueen underwear so in the trash they went to his distress. I cleaned him up, put fresh clothes on and we headed out the door to school.
On the way I thought about the GE Profile stainless steel capacity front load washer with Steam that I had the opportunity to ogle over at the GE Monogram Experience Center this week. I imagined how that shiny, red appliance would sit in my laundry room ready and able to help me tackle my inadequacy in the laundry department (my least favorite household task). Would I despise laundry less if it looked like this?
- Three year-old poops his pants. I’d simply toss his clothes in the wash (instead of the trash) and select “feces” from the Stain Inspector stain removal system letting the washer choose the best cycle, water temperature, detergent and pre-treat to tackle that stain or one of 40 others listed in the system.
- I forgot to wash Nature Boy’s karate uniform (again). Overnight Ready would rescue me (and him). I could toss it in the washing machine before bed and wake up to a clean, dry uniform ready to wear. No need to get up at 5 a.m. to switch the clothes from the washer to the dryer.
- Left a load in the washer too long and now it smells. I would actually avoid a total rewash with Steam Refresh. It refreshes fabrics and removes wrinkles and odors using steam and saving water and detergent.
- Piled three clean loads on the couch and the shirt my husband needs is a wrinkled mess. Hurray for Steam DeWrinkle! It would quickly removes stubborn wrinkles using steam and tumble action.
While this dreamy washer and dryer system worked it’s magic rescuing me from my numerous laundry fails it would also save energy because it’s EnergyStar qualified and CEE Tier III rated, which means it uses less energy and can lead to lower bills. Plus, I could choose eWash and eDry cycles for cold water and lower drying temperatures that reduce energy use by 10% each.
Would I love this washer and dryer? Absolutely! Would I love doing laundry? Probably not. But maybe I’d actually do it!

A fun laundry related side note…How cool is this art featured at 21c Hotel during our opening night party? The sculptures represent the four seasons and are completely constructed of seasonal clothing. Love!
