Don’t leave your laundry in the cold: You can clean clothes better!

Chilliwack appliance experts offer tips to get the best results from your new machine

So, you’ve purchased a new washer and you’re looking forward to your high-efficiency machine handling the larger loads that often accompany back-to-school and fall sports startups.

Do you plan on using that same detergent you’ve always used? You may want to consider other options for better results, says Ray Wolbers from Wagner Appliances in Chilliwack.

“Every day I teach people about proper washing techniques,” he says, noting that Chilliwack’s colder-than-average water temperature doesn’t always work well with standard detergents in cold-water laundry situations. Washing colours and delicates on a “warm” setting is often just right, he adds. “We spend a fair bit of time educating people on the best ways to get their clothes cleaner.”

European products work well with new washers

Whether that new machine is a Maytag, Whirlpool, Amana or other brand, the Persil laundry detergent products Wagner carries are formulated to help you get the most of your new washer, Wolbers says. “They have unique and specialty products that work well on things like odours from sports gear or towels, and are designed for high-efficiency machines.”

Save on your next solo machine or pair

Wagner can help you save money whether you’re looking to replace one or both of your laundry pieces. With pairs ranging from side-by-side models to stackable styles in a variety of brands, there are many options and significant savings available. The same goes for individual front- or top-loading washers, as well as dryers.

Celebrating 50 years in Chilliwack

Not many businesses can say they’ve been around for 50 years, but Wagner Appliances is one of them. Having celebrated the “golden” anniversary this past spring, owner Mark Blessin and his staff are looking ahead to the future and continuing to find ways to help residents of the Valley and beyond with their kitchen and laundry appliance needs.

Supporting the greater community

As a participant in the community beyond the walls of the store, Blessin and Wagner Appliances support various groups from the Rotary Club and Salvation Army, to the Chilliwack Symphony Orchestra and other area non-profits. Talk to them about how they might team up with your organization to help promote community goals and well-being!
