We ran a variety of loads over a couple of months and were happy with the results overall. The sensing mechanism in the dryer did a great job at not overheating clothes, which means items didn’t shrink and our fabrics were still in good shape. We should note that some heavier items such as bulky jackets and sweatpants still had some damp spots after a normal load. We ran that particular load on Normal, medium temperature, normal dry level, and static release. That said, we were definitely impressed with the rapid dry setting. This option is meant for just a few items or one or two bulky items. We put damp jeans, a top, and the not completely dry jacket in the bin with the Rapid Dry setting and all were completely dry after 15 minutes. … [Read more...] about Maytag MEDB755DW electric dryer with steam review
The two big options that set this machine apart from others is PowerWash and deep fill. The PowerWash option offers extra cleaning power in heated water to remove tough stains, while the deep-fill option fills the washer to a pre-determined water level regardless of load size. This feature – designed for those who feel modern washers don’t use enough water — is available with any cycle except sanitize with oxi, drain and spin, or clean washer. This machine has auto-sensing for the water levels, so if you don’t select deep fill it will estimate the load size and add the appropriate amount of water. Interestingly, even Whirlpool admits that the auto-sensing is your best bet for removing stains, and the deep fill is just more for those looking for a “traditional” washing experience. The same could be argued for the presence of the agitator; many people like them because they think they get clothes cleaner, but they are definitely tougher on fabrics than … [Read more...] about Maytag MVWB765FW Top Load Washer review
Apple has now added the Touch Bar to all of its 13- and 15-inch MacBook Pro models. The Touch Bar is a slim OLED touchscreen that takes the place of the function keys and is purpose-built for navigating MacOS and its software. That addition means your main decision now comes down to internal specs and ports, as well as the size of the chassis. Apple updated almost the entire MacBook Pro range in 2019, bringing 8th- and 9th-generation Intel processors, including eight-core chips to the 15-inch Pro for the first time. … [Read more...] about The best MacBook deals for April 2020
The reuse and recycle mantra is applied to projects on a much grander scale as well. A perfect example of this is Keen’s corporate headquarters, a five-story building located in Portland’s trendy Pearl District. When the company bought its new office space back 2012, it was in serious need of remodeling in order to meet the shoe-manufacturer’s needs. But keeping its commitment to the environment in mind, architects and designers came up with some creative ways to reduce the amount of waste that was created when gutting the building. That meant reusing materials and fixtures that were already in the building to assist in the remodel process. That approach was so successful that after the 50,000 square-foot structure was overhauled, only a single dumpster load of trash was hauled away. Typically on a project of that scale, construction companies will haul away three times that amount on a weekly basis alone. … [Read more...] about Keen wants to save the planet one pair of shoes at a time
