When I lived in Birmingham for a short while, I kept my washing machine about 3 miles away in the nearest laundrette.

My first maisonette in north London had the washing machine on the veranda. It had a bent axle and was an evening's entertainment when in use, lurching and banging. Simpler times.

In our late '80s digs in Splott, we had a Hotpoint twin tub – a washer and spinner in one! With a good run up, it could achieve a geostationary orbit.

He's referring to a comment made by Kirsty Allsop: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/ho ... 36781.html

Presumably she lets her knickers get so filthy that it's not safe to wash them in the kitchen. :P
