Guaranteed for life

24 September 2013

In our Life & Living magazine this Spring we ran a story about a radio that was bought in 1948 and is still going strong. 

This sparked a debate about long-lasting household appliances, and we were particularly impressed with a letter from Mrs M Thompson, from Topsham, Devon, who wrote to us about her washing machine. Since most modern washing machines don’t seem to last longer than a couple of years, she is quite rightly proud of hers, which she bought 26 years ago, has used constantly, and is still fully functioning.

We have a feeling someone out there can beat that, so if you have a story feel free to share it with us using the comment section below.
