My Laundry Routine with LG Electronics South Africa


Shu that’s a mouth full I know. With a family of five my laundry is quite a lot and going through all these clothes by getting them sorted, cleaned and washed is a bit of a drag to be honest, so you really need to have your wits about you when doing laundry. I try to have a system in place that way I know priorities like my husband’s shirts and new-born babies growers are first on the list to wash.

I have a super simple laundry routine; and the LG Sapience Top Loader with Smart Inverter washing machine makes washing laundry even better, more efficient and easy and an overall better wash #LGSmartInverter
1. I try to wash one or two loads a day as opposed to washing the entire day and running up a water and electricity bill.

2. Colours are kept separate from whites and washed that way too.

3. Clothes are shaken and folded up while it’s wet and hung out to dry. I use the same method when taking off the washing too, by folding the clothes as I take them off the washing line. This prevents your clothes from creasing.

4. I keep the heavy loads for a sunny day with a little bit of wind. The clothes dry quicker that way.

5. Prioritizing the clothes

  • my husband’s work shirts, he normally wears the same shirts weekly
  • the baby’s clothing like growers and vests, with summer here baby is practically living in them and wears nothing else, so I have to wash his clothes frequently. He has eczema and gets heat rash on the regular and the vests is the coolest item of clothing to wear,
  • and the girl’s underwear, vests and leggings

All of this is good and well but our eight year old washing machine was starting to wear and tear and we were really in need of a new washing machine so imagine my surprise when LG Electronics South Africa wanted to partner up with me to review their latest gorgeous washing machine. Just our luck and it really came in the best possible time and I’m telling you doing your laundry with this washing machine is like laundry heaven. I’ve never seen a washing machine this big before, the washing boasts a cool 15kgs, white exterior with a silver front control board.

There are different sizes and weight in the washing machine that may be more suited to your needs. You can view the specifications on the LG Sapience Top Loader with Smart Inverter washing machine that I have and local retail stores here

What’s good about the LG Inverter washing machine?

It took the installation guys about 15minutes max to install the washing machine and that is ridiculously easy and fast installation in my books.

The washing machine come with an easy to read manual that gives you a step by step guide to setting up the right washing requirements, so that if you wanted to start with the washing you can do it immediately after installation, we literally did a load after installation, and figured out the setting within 5 minutes of reading the manual.

I love that it has a soft closing lid, the girls were so fascinated with this, to the point where they thought it was fun opening and closing the lid, and I had to enforce some rules. The lid lowers gently and shuts quietly; it’s quite satisfying to watch.

You have complete control of the front panel that is at fingers tips length, which makes it easier to access and it’s also water resistant.

It has a wide glass lid that is convenient when you want to check up on your washing.

The TurboDrum™ enables the most powerful wash and removes even the toughest dirt through strong water stream of rotating drum and pulsator in the opposite direction. Plus the drum is huge, and I couldn’t believe how many clothing items could fit in it, instead of doing three loads a day, we now resort to only doing one white and one colour load, the machine holds anything from clothing, to bedding, or even a cat bed.

You are in for a treat with Energy Saving with Smart Inverter Control – Smart Inverter Technology eliminates wasted operation by efficiently controlling energy use saving up to 36%.

Okay so Smart Motion is basically 3 kinds of motions created by Smart Inverter for optimized washing by fabric type and the three motions are Agitating for powerful washing, Rotating means your clothes are tangle free and Swing gives your clothing the most delicate wash, now that’s amazing!

The LG Inverter washing machine has a timer, child lock and quiet wash, the Smart Inverter Motor minimizes noise and vibration level making it convenient to do washing early in the mornings or at night when everyone’s asleep. My baby even falls asleep while the machine is on, it doesn’t bother him at all. These types of features are what make this washing machine the best for families in my opinion. Plus it has a 10 year warranty.

It has a SmartDiagnosis function means that your washing machine is equipped with the latest technology to troubleshoot and help diagnose what’s wrong with your washing machine, all within the comfort of your home and with your home device, by selecting the SmartDiagnosis app that sends data from your washing machine to the call centre office with a click of a button. That is insane right?

I get it this must have been a lot to take in but guys, this machine is really amazing. The technology on this washing machine is like nothing I have ever seen; and with the water restrictions and power shortages these features are a perfect combination to help with saving on household necessities. Just keep in mind though with all the modern technology that the LG Sapience Top Loader with Smart Inverter washing machine has, it also comes with a big price tag.

I’d like to thank LG Electronics South Africa for sending the washing machine to me for a review.

Now comes the good stuff where I show you how the washing machine works, hope you enjoy this video. I’m sure you can see our excitement.

A huge shout out to my cousin Nazley for taking the pictures and videos for this post. Much appreciated.



Until next time


  1. Love this. Awesome video. I won’t let my girls touch mine! lol

    • Hi there thanks, I’ve just read your review on the washing machine too, great read hun. I love it hey, obsessed and i had to set some rules on touching it, because they just love opening and closing the lid.

  2. I see energy saving.

    But does it use minimal water??

    • Yes because you use a lot more washing items, so you would wash one big load as opposed to three small loads.

      • Hi yes thanks, its a fantastic washing machine #LGSmartInverter

  3. Sounds interesting.

  4. So how efficient is it in terms of water consumption? How many litres does it use for a large load from start to end?

    • Look its no secret top loaders do take a little bit more water than front loaders, however with the LG washing machine, you can adjust the water to accommodate the amount of load you have, so in that way you save water. Also you would do one load as opposed to three loads because the washing machine takes more washing. And personally i try to recycle the grey water that is released from the washing machine. Hope this answers your question xx
