In our teeny tiny home, space is always at a premium. This weekend, C & I finally bought this combination washer/dryer/steam cleaner to replace the old stacking washer/dryer sitting in the kitchen. I can't tell you how excited I am to have this new appliance... It will help free up so much space in the house since we'll be able to add shelves and hanging racks above the w/d. Now we won't have to put a drying rack in the living room! I could go on and on about the fabulous nature of this washer, but maybe I'll wait until it comes and I'm sure it works as well as I hope!
