Which is better ?
- Twin-tubs like Granny used
- Front loading European style
I remember arriving in Taipei and being highly amused that the Taiwanese were still using twin-tub style washing machines, like wot my granny happily threw out when my Dad was 10. However, having been in the UK / Ireland for four years now, I am not so sure I was right to laugh. My succession of drum-type machines use an enormous amount of soap powder and electricity but almost no water, and the clothes come out no cleaner than my wonderful Taiwanese machine which drowned and strangulated my clothes in 300 gallons of water for 20 minutes.
Which is better ? I think the Taiwanese machine rinsed out the soap better than my current European one. Any thoughts on this burning issue ?
