You know, in a family of 6 people, laundry is a big deal…an (almost) every day chore, that I really dislike. Especially since I was still using my machines from 10 years ago…when our little family only consisted of 2, aka me and the husband. So I did some research to find the best equipment for our lifestyle, and quickly ended up with the brand AEG. They score really good at several consumer tests, and that convinced me to go for them. Also, I attended the launch of the AEG Care Label project and learned that this company is really invested in the environment and durability, which is also a plus.

Seems like we maintain the ‘old’ washing habits from the fifties, while clothes in these times are used completely differently. Both for your clothes and the environment it is a good thing not to overwash, and to set the temperatures low. Changing from 40 to 30 degrees can also mean a big difference on the energy bill! These are things to think about…especially in my household! The machines are up and running for a couple of weeks now, and I wanted to share with you how it is going:

– washing on low temperatures also gets most stains out…of course not ALL, because hey…4 kids, a lot of chocolate, sticky fingers, cherry season…ya know.

– I threw some silk & wool items from the bubba in the machine AND the dryer…and that is just fine, when using the right program! No more trips to the dry cleaner for me.

– my machines use the Pro Sense system…weighing my laundry and selecting the advised program, how convenient!

Here some real life laundry  and laundry room snaps and a few pretty pics from my littlest washed and folded clothes (can’t do only real life images, peeps, haha!)-hereby some delicate fabrics that went in the dryer as well ! Oh, and soon I’ll ad a ‘part two’ of all my washing experiences.

 

In een gezin van 6 mensen kan ‘de was’ nogal een ‘big deal’ zijn…het is een verhaal dat nooit eindigt, een taak die elke dag moet uitgevoerd worden en waarvan ik NIET hou. Vooral niet omdat ik tot voor kort nog oude toestellen van 10 jaar geleden gebruikte, geschikt voor een gezinnetje van 2 personen (mijn man en ik), maar minder aangewezen bij een grote familie van 6.  Tijd voor een update dus (of upgrade?). Ik deed een beetje onderzoek en kwam al snel uit bij AEG als aangewezen merk voor onze levensstijl. AEG scoort heel goed in consumentenonderzoeken, voor mij een belangrijke. En een tijdje geleden woonde ik de launch van het AEG Care Label project bij en leerde ik dat dit bedrijf echt wel bezig is met duurzaamheid en het milieu. Ik was verkocht.

Het Care Label project toont ons dat we nog steeds dezelfde wasgewoonten van de jaren ’50 jaar geleden hanteren,  terwijl de manier waarop we nu met kleding omgaan radicaal veranderd is. We moeten stoppen met alles teveel te wassen en te hoge temperaturen te gebruiken, voor zowel de kleding, het milieu en onze portemonnee. Toch wel dingen om over na te denken, vooral in dit grote huishouden. Hoe dan ook, mijn nieuwe toestellen zijn nu al een tijdje in gebruik en ik vertel graag hoe ik mijn wasgewoonten al een beetje heb veranderd en mijn bevindingen hierbij:

- wassen op lage temperaturen haalt de meeste vlekken ook wel weg…maar natuurlijk ook niet ALLES, want ja, 4 kids, veel chocola, plakvingertjes, kersenseizoen, je weet wel …

- ik heb het aangedurfd om wollen en zijden stuks van ons kleinste gezinslid in de wasmachine EN de droogtrommel te gooien (mét aangepast programma, uiteraard!) en dat was helemaal OK! Geen trips naar de droogkuis meer voor mij, ha!

- mijn machines hanteren het Pro Sense systeem…de was wordt gewogen en er wordt een aangepast programma geselecteerd, zo makkelijk.

 

En dan nu opgepast, enkele ‘real life’ fotootjes van mijn was en wasplaats…met wat tegengewicht van enkele mooie fotootjes van een lief stapeltje was van de kleinste (die heeft altijd de mooiste wasjes)-met daarbij enkele delicate stofjes die gewoon mee in de droogkast gingen! En binnenkort deel 2 van mijn wasbevindingen…

 

We have to big containers in the bathroom-one for ‘light colors’ , the other for ‘dark’-

Er staan twee grote wasmanden in de badkamer-eentje voor lichte kleuren en eentje voor donkere.

Lately I find myself bored about everything I put on our plates.  Also, I tend to simplify our menu, just to make sure all the kids will eat and to make sure they eat their veggies (for example, I sometimes mix the spaghetti sauce, so all the vegetables magically disappear).  At the same time I’m so annoyed that I’m making this effort because I also believe that our kids should eat whatever they get served.  I remember that when I was their age, I ate everything and I never complained about what was for diner. I just have always loved food and this was of course super easy for our parents. At the age of 13, my sis and I decided to live a vegetarian lifestyle but besides meat, we literally ate and eat everything. Now I’m a bit stuck in a rut. Especially Lilou and Remi nag about their veggies. Delhaize wants to give kids more vitamins too: with their Vitaminis promotion they want to inform kiddos and their parents about healthy food and they want us parents to get the kids more involved in choosing the menu and also in prepping diner.  This would help them eat better too. I must admit that I’m guilty for not involving them too much, because I always think it would be too time consuming. But if this could spare me time whining less about emptying their plates, this could be a zero sum game right?! So I will definately give this a try. What we also do to make our diner more interesting, is to order our Hello Fresh box for the week and it is just sooo refreshing! I love cooking things I didn’t know before, exploring new herbs and tastes, it just makes our diner much more interesting every time. The other day we got ourselves some healthy snacks from Delhaize and I thought it would be nice to photograph each kiddo with their fave piece.  They sure had fun! Oh and did you know Stokke has this new option to engrave the name of the kid on the back of the Tripp Trapp.  It is just ah-mazing!! Before, the kids fought quite a bit for their chairs, but now there cannot be any discussion because their name is on the back. They LOVE it! Ok, don’t forget to share your tips about how you get your kids to eat healthy! We’re super curious!
