Ah, which is similar to (but also opposite to) the problem with prewash cycles in washing machines if using pods/dosing balls. As you drop the detergent into the drum, it’s all used up in the prewash, so you have no detergent in the main wash.


I've been doing laundry wrong!

Dishwashers aren't all that heavy really, but washing machines are really, really heavy.

Taking a broken washing machine apart (so I could get the drum out, and use it as a fire pit) was fun - there are big blocks of cement (or something else hard and heavy) in there to weigh the thing down and stop it bouncing around during a spin cycle.

Speaking of which, I used to quite enjoy videos of washing machines smashing themselves up when a brick is thrown into a fast spin cycle.... Off to you tube....

Yes! Which means, if you have a cheap one where they've saved money by not having a full shell round the whole thing, you can see the cement block in the back. If I'd found the right tool, I probably could have just taken it off - would have made taking it to the tip much easier.

Dishwashers are surprsingly light, I carried a full height slimline one down a flight of stairs with no issue.

I've always loved Billy Joel, but I've just seen the video to his classic track Keeping the Faith and consider my mind blown.

Thanks to this channel, I now know far more than will ever be useful about how humidifiers, traffic lights and air conditioners work!
