Michael, Braintree Busy mum or dad

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use and does the job. Very good value for money.
Bad points:
Need to use extra rinse on every wash to avoid washing powder residue on clothes.

This machine was delivered direct from the factory but the warehouse failed to load the machine on the lorry so it took 4 weeks to be delivered.
