She-Shed Essentials: Appliances For Your Lady Lair

Move over, man-cave: the she-shed has landed! She-sheds are women’s answer to the man-cave, a designated place for women to entertain, relax and engage in “the domestic arts” (or video games, beer, and mechanics–whatever floats your boat!). Need a clearer visual? Browse these then check out our top picks for furnishing your lady lair.



Climate Control

Your she-shed should be the apex of comfort. Keep the climate to your liking with a portable A/C unit for hot summer days, and a space heater for chilly evenings.



A Mini Fridge

Stock your she-cave with your favorite treats, secure in the knowledge that no pesky kids or men will devour them.



Wine Cooler or Cellar

Obviously. With models starting as low as $120, SW Appliances offers an enormous range of price points and sizes for your personal wine cooler or cellar. We suggest something small and compact, with a clear window to show off your taste in vintages.


Food Preparation Equipment

If cooking or baking is essential to your she-cave activities, you can integrate a full kitchen (just make sure the ventilation is there, wiring is good, etc.). If you’re more of a popcorn and pizza rolls kinda gal, a simple microwave should do just fine.


Movie buff, or just prefer to enjoy your favorite shows sans distractions? Then incorporate a TV into your she-cave!




For listening to your favorite music or podcasts, at any volume you please. Or try ambient noises, for a spa-serene experience.

Summer Laundry Tips

Tis the season of swimsuits, barbeque sauce, popsicles, and gauzy garments–and with them, a unique set of laundry challenges. Unfortunately, sometimes washing machines and dryers can do more harm than good when used incorrectly to clean delicate summer clothes. Follow these tips to face some common summer laundry challenges.


 When to Machine Wash A Swimsuit

Swimsuits, especially those made of cotton or nylon, are not the most durable of garments. For this reason, they should normally be hand rinsed after each use. However, most suits can–and should–take a spin in the machine every 4 or 5 wears to remove more ingrained dirt, chemicals, salt, etc. Suits should always be washed in cold water on a delicate cycle. Preferably, they should be wrapped in a mesh bag to prevent too much damage, and at the very least should be in with other soft delicates, like hand towels. One exception to the washing machine rules? Suits with sequins or other embellishments, which should always be hand washed. Swimwear should always be air dried.




How to Machine Wash Linen Clothing

There’s something so light and luxurious about the feel of cool, clean linen on a hot summer day. However, linen garments can be notoriously vulnerable to the ravages of a machine wash. Linen garments should always be washed on your machine’s gentlest cycle, in lukewarm or cool water (not hot or cold). If possible, the water level should be set to high so that the garments move as freely as possible. Always wash linens with like colors and materials (no zippers or buttons, which can tear the delicate cloth) and use a mild deterge


Machine Washing Dark Clothing

The preservation of dark clothing often gets overlooked in summer, but little black dresses or navy polos can quickly fade in the intense summer sun. Cheer and similar brands offer detergent specifically formulated to keep your clothes “mysteriously dark and dramatic” (Cheer’s words, not ours), and can help mitigate UV damage.

These tips work best with a quality washing machine.Ready for an upgrade? Check out our full line of state of the art models here.

Summer’s Almost Here! Four Tips For Buying an Air Conditioner

12625685_lSpring has sprung. That means sunshine, flowers, and relief from another brutal winter! But it also means the sweltering days of summer are just around the corner. Follow these tips to ensure your home is comfortable for all seasons.

Don’t wait until summer, when prices are highest. Right now, S&W Appliances offers some great sales and rebates on portable, window, and wall fit air conditioners. Besides–no one likes to do heavy lifting when it’s 80 degrees!


Bigger is not always better. Experts recommend one ton of refrigeration for every 320-400 square feet, depending on the efficiency of your unit. Oversize AC units tend to start and stop more often, which can raise your electric bill. Ask an associate to help you pick an air conditioner that meets your needs without going overboard. (http://archive.azcentral.com/style/hfe/diy/articles/20120611buying-air-conditioner-8-smart-strategies.html)


Check EPA ratings to save the earth (and money!). Units with an Energy Star rating have been approved by the EPA as being significantly more efficient that the federal minimum standard. These units will also have a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER) between 13-21. The higher the rating, the more efficient the unit.

Look into warranty options. Anyone who’s been stuck in a hot home with a broken AC knows that it’s not a fun situation to be in. A good warranty ensures that if you have any issues with your unit they’ll be addressed, so be sure to check what options are available with your unit before you buy.

What’s sweeter than a peach? A grilled peach, halved and served with whipped cream!


Pineapple Slices

The heat of the flame helps caramelize this sweet fruit, giving it a nice bit of added texture. Serve with ice cream and brown sugar.


Portobello Mushroom Caps

Portobellos are super versatile– try marinating them in a vinaigrette pre-grill. They can make a great substitute for burgers for any vegetarian or health conscious guests!

 Mexican Grilled Corn

Just toss a husked cob on the grill and cook until slightly charred. Then, top with mayo, sour cream, cilantro, and parmesan cheese. Serve with lime.

Citrus Garnish

Add some complexity to sweet summer cocktails by grilling your lemon or lime garnish.

Flatbread Pizzas

Making your own flatbreads on the grill is surprisingly simple. Just flatten some premade dough, spread lightly with olive oil, grill, flip, add your desired toppings and ta da! It’s a fun new spin on pizza night.



For a sweet and salty treat, try grilling watermelon then sprinkling with sea salt.
