Here at SLOAN! we received the Whirlpool Supreme Care Live® washing machine and matching tumble dryer which we were excited to try out as we had been told they communicate with each other via the Whirlpool 6TH SENSE Live® app using cutting edge technology.
As our founder Sloan Sheridan-Williams is known for her work with time poor people that have high powered jobs, she is often asked about time management tips to help them balance both achievement and significance they get from work with the fulfilment and joy they get from family life. When it comes to the more mundane chores around the house, the obvious tip would be to outsource, get a cleaner or housekeeper. However, with technology advancing, are we finally at a stage where we can outsource via smart appliances. Obviously one would still need to load and unload the laundry but Whirlpool has delivered an answer to begin bridging the gap and give us our time back.
The 6TH SENSE Live® app communicates the washer’s current programme to the dryer and synchronises the correct drying cycle, to ensure optimum garment care. You can stay in touch with your progress at home or remotely. A downside that may or may not affect you is that the economy setting can take between 4 and 6 hours, but this is negated by the fact you can set your washing while on your daily commute.
For those who want to be environmentally friendly, it is extremely efficient on electricity and promotes the reduction of your household’s carbon footprint. Those who want to keep their hard earned cash to invest will be pleased to note that it can cost as little as a meal out to wash and dry your laundry for a whole year! Impressive, we thought so, and we are not even talking Michelin star meals!
The app is easy to use, very intuitive and the devices are advanced enough to learn and adapt to you. The app allows you to set or change the programme settings, check the progress of your wash and order accessories. For those who work from home whether you are making important sales calls, running coaching programmes, setting up a YouTube channel or interviewing thought leaders on your podcast, the one thing you won’t notice is noise. We were amazed at how quiet the spin cycle is and although we wouldn’t suggest sitting next to the washing machine to carry out those tasks, this fabulous machine will not interfere with the peace and quiet needed to run a successful business from home.
Some may think the price tag of £899 per machine is a little on the steep side, but what use is the money you earn if you are not spending it on the best machines for your needs. For those with designer threads, the dryer is said to have the best wool drying programme on the market, drying up to four jumpers in just one hour.
Sloan says “The less time you spend doing trivial things, the more time you can spend on what’s important. With our busy modern lives filled with decision fatigue and time management issues, it is so lovely to have an intelligent washing machine and tumble dryer that practically does it all for you, giving you the time to focus on the important decisions in life such as how to improve your business and provide more value to your clients while giving you the freedom to spend your time with family and loved ones.”
