Steam washer & dryer - hype or not?
I've searched forum, and the answers are 1-2 years old, so I thought I'd give another try. From goodhousekeeping they are saying steam ones are better, but I don't know if they are twice-the-cost better?
Does steam cleaners work better? And does using steam imply you have to use hot water cycle? If that's the case, what benefit do I get if using cold cycle most of the time?
I also don't understand the steam dryer. My current dryer has a tumble cycle, which will tumble at an interval after clothes are dry to reduce wrinkles. That works for me. I use a garment steamer to refresh clothes as I doubt I'd go to the laundry room just to freshing out a few wrinkles.
With that said, are there any benefits that I can reap from steam washer/dryer? What is the best out there for non-steam front loaders? Obviously I am looking at something that is efficient and cleans well.
Thank you all in advance,
