Whirlpool Brand Introduces New Mobile App To Ease The Hassle Of Laundry

BENTON HARBOR (WWJ) -- Whirlpool Corp. Thursday announced a laundry mobile app that includes more than 100 years of laundry knowledge.

The Whirlpool WashSquad app also has family chore management features to delegate what research shows is one of the most dreaded tasks of the household.

"We live in a digital age and being able to delegate and track chores in the palm of your hand is fantastic for families," said Shana Redd, Whirlpool brand laundry manager. "We are constantly striving to give consumers the tools they desire for smarter home management."

The app allows users to lighten the laundry load by assigning responsibilities to family members, while tracking and rewarding laundry feats on the Wash Board. The app also allows families to share tips and communicate about chores while balancing busy lifestyles. And it contains a wealth of laundry care tips, as well as appliance registration and management.

And have you ever wondered what those less than intuitive symbols on you garment labels mean? Uncover the best options for your clothes by using the Label Decoder feature.

The Whirlpool WashSquad laundry app is available for free download in the Apple iTunes App store.

Whirlpool is the world's leading manufacturer and marketer of major home appliances, with annual sales of approximately $18 billion in 2012, 68,000 employees and 65 manufacturing and technology research centers around the world. More at
