Comments: A Housewife's Suffering

2 suggestions- 1- run the clothes on an extra spin cycle (if you can) and then drape them on radiators throughout the place. 2- do number 1 (ha ha) and then drape them on a drying rack, if you can get hold of one. That was the only way I could catch up on laundry when our dryer was (a) smaller than our washer and (b) took 2, sometimes 3 cycles to get things dry.

Is there an "eco" cycle (or something similar)? That one usually only takes 30-40 minutes and makes things *almost* manageable. GOOD LUCK!!!

I do drape things on radiators. Otherwise a load would never be done. I haven't found a cycle that cleans quickly, but I suppose I can try some other ones.

We were also tortured by one of these machines during our stay with a friend in London. Very little fits in, it takes forever, and it's confusing. Oh, and if the machine gets "out of order" your clothes are trapped - the machines doesn't open mid-cycle. After a day or so stuck like that, it will release, but you are out of luck in the meantime.

Oh well.
