The washing machine for your family
1 or 2 people
If you live alone or as a couple, you should buy a washing machine with room for 7 or 8 kilos of laundry. With a small household, you can use this machine to do laundry multiple times a week.
2 people with a baby
If you're a small family with a baby, we recommend a washing machine with room for 7 to 9 kilos. This depends on how much laundry you have and how often you do laundry. If you have to do a lot of small laundry, such as onesies and tiny socks, you should opt for a washing machine with a 7-kilo load capacity. If you like to fill your drum with towels and bedding, you may need 8 or 9 kilos.
2 people with 1 child
If you have a slightly older child, you should opt for a washing machine with a capacity of at least 8 kilos. With a kid at home, you have to wash larger clothes than with a small baby. Keep this in mind when purchasing your washing machine.
2 people with 2 children
Just like with a family with 1 child, we recommend a washing machine with a capacity of at least 8 kilos. When your kids are playing outside all day, you may need a larger washing machine, for instance one with a 9-kilo load capacity.
2 people with more than 2 children
A household with more than 2 people needs a large washing machine. If you want to do your laundry in one go, we recommend a washing machine with a 9-kilo capacity or more. This way, you can do the laundry multiple times a week. This ensures everything fits in the drum and saves on energy.
