In addition to Victoria Albert’s six, preexisting, finishes, the wide range of Victoria Albert tubs are now available in a wide array of shades, ranging across the rainbow. The multi-layered finish includes a special catalyzed paint, which is hand polishing between applications. Offered in both gloss and matte finishes, the technique in which the color is applied results in a stunning depth of color and is considerably more durable than hand painted surfaces.
#3 : UltraFresh Front Load Washer by GE
The GE UltraFresh Front Load Washer is a revolutionary laundry system designed to solve our biggest complaints about front load washers.

Eliminating laundry room countertop clutter, the smart washer holds a full 50oz bottle of your favorite laundry detergent, equaling about 32 loads, and automatically dispenses the perfect amount based on the weight and material type. Ensuring perfection from start to finish, the wirelessly synced UltraFresh dryer, fluffs cloths according to the settings determined for specific wash cycles. All in all, the GE Ultrafresh Front Load Washer takes the headache out of doing laundry.
