As a budding homeowner, there are several new responsibilities you would have to undertake after you have moved into your newly renovated home. Laundry is a classic example! It should not come as a surprise that many would not know how to gauge their laundry load, be it washing or drying it.
One of the key factors in ending up with fresh, crisp laundry is to avoid overloading your Steigen automated laundry system. Here’s your starter guide on knowing your laundry load.
What is considered standard load capacity?
The average washing machine load capacity ranges from 7-10KG. As washing machines come in various sizes, there is no standard washer size that can determine the tub capacity of a washing machine.
Usually, a 7-9KG washing machine is enough for a small family of four. 1KG of laundry is approximately two spin-dried bath towels or 6-7 garments, depending on the material and length (e.g. t-shirts versus jeans). Do take note that bedsheets and duvet covers weigh a lot more even after it has been spin-dried in the washer. Hence, a 50KG load would amount to approximately 10 spin-dried bath towels or 30-35 (maybe even 45) spin-dried garments!
It is said that if you can scoop up your laundry in a comfortable armload grip, then you would have yourself a medium-sized load.
How much laundry can I dry on the Steigen automated laundry drying system?
With a humble range of Steigen automated laundry drying systems to choose from, there is one for every home, no matter the household size. The smallest load capacity Steigen offers is 35KG and the largest is at a whopping 50KG.
The average Steigen automated laundry drying system can dry up to 9 hanging laundry per pole, and each system comes with 5 poles. You may also switch out 9 garments in exchange for 1 pole space to dry an entire king-size bedsheet or duvet cover.
The best part, the Solar Drying function of the system would not crease your laundry like how a traditional dryer would, and it costs as low as $0.14/hour*.
Let’s face it: The mere 35KG load capacity which Steigen offers is already 5 times more than the usual washing machine load capacity. With this system, you never have to worry about running back-to-back washing and drying cycles that will wear down your washer-dryer combo.
