QUIZ: How well do you know how to work your washing machine?

Learning to use a washing machine is a rite of passage but some people take longer than others to embrace this skill.

Do you know someone who’s still bringing their dirty laundry home, long after they should have learnt to do it themselves? Likewise, there’s often one person in a relationship who takes something of a back seat when it comes to laundry.

We’ve come up with a simple quiz to see who knows more about doing the washing in your relationship, house share or family. This is your chance to test how much your partner, housemate or family member really knows about that mysterious appliance in the corner!

Regardless of whether you’re a laundry novice or a clothes-washing expert, Bosch washing machines are renowned for their ease of use. Their intuitive controls will take the mystery out of putting on a wash and their smart technology features make it easier than ever to get everything just right.

For instance, their intelligent i-DOS detergent saver system uses sensors to detect the weight, fabric type and degree of soiling of any load. It then calculates exactly how much detergent is needed to get optimum results, so all you need to do is fill the machine and let it take care of the details.

The Home Connect with Easy Start function can tell you exactly what you need to do with your washing via your smartphone. Simply enter the laundry’s colour, fabric type and the degree of soiling into the app and it will recommend the best program to use every time. Another clever feature is the Reload function, which lets you stop the machine mid-wash and add any items you forgot to include, from a sock to a bundle of towels. That’s a pretty useful option, whether you’re new to laundry or a seasoned pro.

Before a Bosch washing machine leaves the factory, they test every tiny detail and subject it to endless stress tests to ensure that every component meets their high standards of quality, functionality and reliability. So once you get a Bosch washing machine, you won’t have to worry about getting another machine for a long time to come. If you’re in the market for a new washing machine and want some help choosing the right washing machine for you, you can check out this handy guide.

In the meantime, why not test your knowledge in the quiz below. Good luck!
