LOVE the concept of them! While I don't have front-loading w/d's, we had to buy a pair for a house we rent, simply due to space. I used them while we were preparing the house, and learned that you can't do "small loads" very well in the front-loaders. So sorting laundry can be a problem!Originally Posted by prhoshay;4183416;
I'm used to sorting my laundry and adjusting my water level to the load. With front-loaders, even small loads require that you throw in towels or similar heavier items to make the load "balanced." Hence, seperating your colors isn't as simple as they used to be. That's why the Color Catchers were developed.
While working on our rental house I loved the fancy front-loading laundry items we added, I now know that while I covet them like crazy, I realize in a few years my kids will be gone, and then I'll NEVER have enough laundry between my husband and me to justify a load. So, I'm sticking with my old-timey machine at home for now.
