Submission + - Elderly couple has owned the same appliances for 50 years (designyoutrust.com) 1

sandbagger writes: Sydney and Rachel Saunders from Exeter, UK, an elderly couple, both in their 80s, have been using the same home appliances that they bought over half a century ago! Their tumble dryer, boiler, cooker, and washing machine cost them just £146 GBP ($193 USD) when they purchased in 1956, and somewhat incredibly, they continue to work to this day. “Things were made better in those days, they were more durable and stronger,” said Mr Saunders, a retired accountant. To be fair, the clothes washer has not had much use in the last dozen years.
