15% of UK households have a washing machine that sounds like an aeroplane taking off.
This is according to a mini-poll we ran on behalf of household appliance manufacturer, Whirlpool, for National Quiet Day, which questioned 1300 UK adults on their washing machine noise levels.15% of UK households have a washing machine that sounds like an aeroplane taking off. #nationalquietday Click To Tweet
We also found that more than one in four people compared the sound of their washing machine to that of noisy road traffic and eight per cent of respondents likened the noise of their appliance to the peaceful sound of rustling leaves.
Whirlpool’s PR agent, JMM PR, released a press statement this week highlighting their range of washing machines that, even during the spin cycle, operate at a whisper quiet noise level.
Statistics from the mini-poll were used for impact throughout the statement, which can be read in full here > http://jmmpr.co.uk/washing-machines-are-disrupting-the-peace-and-quiet/
