Speed up laundry days with this washing machine from Smeg – the 9kg capacity is great for medium-sized households. For clothes that don’t need a full wash, the Steam Refresh option uses a burst of steam to revive the fabric and loosen any wrinkles, so you won’t even need to iron. The Anti-Allergy cycle uses high temperatures and extra rinses to leave clothes hygienically clean. When you’re in a hurry, the Quick Wash programme can clean a small load in just 14 minutes. And there’s a dedicated wool programme for your delicate knits.
