The mini portable washer and dryer is a combination washing machine and dryer that has been around for a number of years. It is designed not just to be smaller, but to be portable, solving two of the biggest issues facing people who don't have the space necessary for the conventional washer and dryer set. Below we take a look at what benefits can be had from getting this type of appliance.

1. If you are looking at this type of machine, it is likely you are in an apartment or condo where you don't have regular laundry appliance space. You are expected to use the laundry room or laundromat.

Because space is always a concern in these situations, the mini washer dryer is small enough to fit in even the smallest of homes. Because it both cleans and dries in one tub, you only need one unit, not two.

2. Because you likely don't have built in hookups for laundry, you need an appliance that just doesn't need them. This unit is designed to roll into a corner or closet when you don't need it, and then attach to the kitchen faucet or similar water source when you do need it. Because it is ventless, it doesn't need piping to the outside to vent heat or lint.

3. Although the cost of purchasing a mini washer dryer may seem high over the life time of its use it can save you quite a bit of money. It uses considerably less detergent, water, and power than the standard washer and dryer set. Plus you aren't plunking money into a cost per use machine like you have been doing in the laundry room.

This adds up over time, so the longer you have the mini washer dryer, the more the savings over against the machines you pay to use each time.

4. Really the main reason for you choosing to opt for a mini washer dryer in your home is that it offers you the convenience to do laundry in your own home, without having to lug laundry across the complex, down the stairs, or down the street to the laundromat.

Maybe those places have hours that don't match your availability. Maybe those places are dirty, noisy, or crowded, with machines that take your money and then don't work right! With the mini washer dryer you can start the laundry when you leave for work, and when you return the clothes are clean and dry!
