Bosch Exxcel WTS84500GB Steam Sensor Condenser Tumble Dryer, White – £508

This dryer has ActiveSteam technology to dry your clothes without creasing, saving the average household an incredible 10 days per year of ironing. It also enables you to quickly refresh dry clean only items, saving both time and money. It is fully automatic and has a large 8kg capacity, which benefits from a sensor drying option that automatically detects how damp your clothes are and adjusts the amount of steam generated for perfect results every time. Intelligent sensors continually monitor its progress, adjusting where necessary.

LG F1480FD Direct Drive Washing Machine, White – £599

This A++ rated washing machine has a clever Bio Cycle programme for the toughest stains and a unique Medic Cycle that removes all traces of detergent, which is ideal for people with sensitive skin. It washes a large 9kg load, which is great for families. The Direct Drive system means all the parts in the motor are integrated within the drum providing quieter, more energy efficient results with less vibration.

Other benefits include nine wash programmes including handwash and handwash wool, and five wash options featuring extra rinse and crease care.

Laurastar Magic S4 Evolution Steam Generator Ironing Board – £795

This high-quality ironing system is designed to deliver professional results, making quick work of your laundry while still caring for your clothes. The iron heats up in just three minutes and has a powerful constant steam pressure of 3.5 bars, producing 200 litres of extra fine steam a minute, leaving no damp traces on your clothes.

The foldable ironing board has a choice of six heights and plays an active role in your ironing, incorporating a two-speed silent blower/vacuum system to dry your clothes immediately, to prevent creases and mark seams easily.

Siemens WM14S890GB iDos Washing Machine, White – £999

This A++ rated machine ensures that you will use the correct amount of detergent, thanks to its integrated measuring system – i-Dos, which measures and dispenses exactly the right amount of detergent to wash your clothes more thoroughly. The machine automatically works out the laundry amount, degree of soiling and textile type, then adjusts the wash program and detergent amount for the best results.

It is particularly good for washing woollens, with a gentle drum cradle action and a special ‘ultimate woolcare’ system.
