LG electronics announces new addition to laundry line
LG Electronics has just rolled out a new home appliance, notably the SteamWasher with Allergiene cycle, touting it to be the first washing machine that has been given certification for being asthma & allergy friendly by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA). Apparently, LG hopes that this new home appliance will be able to do its part when it comes to helping out consumers and patients with asthma and allergic diseases. Sounds pretty nifty to me, but is it really that effective as claimed? Only real-world use of it will tell with time,but for the moment let us check out additional details concerning this LG offering after the jump.
The combination of a washer and dryer into one compact unit is ideal for consumers who want to do laundry at home and benefit from the allergen-reduction cycle, but do not have the space for both a washer and dryer or an external venting source necessary for conventional dryers. This unit runs on standard voltage electricity and is great for placement in closets; it’s also the perfect solution for space constrained apartments, businesses and vacation homes. At 4.2 cubic feet, this model is the largest capacity front-load combination unit available, enabling users to do larger loads of laundry, thereby saving time and energy.
The LG SteamWasher and Dryer Combo with Allergiene cycle utilizes LG’s TrueSteam Generator for real steam in the wash tub. The steam technology allows the wash to reach the appropriate temperature necessary to breakdown and wash out allergens – without harming fabrics. The Allergiene cycle has been expertly designed to effectively remove more than 95 percent of allergens and gently clean clothes. The use of steam technology offers exceptional cleaning power for outstanding performance and includes other features such as:
- SteamWash – feeds hot steam into the top of the wash drum through a spray nozzle to penetrate the fabrics; removes dirt and stubborn stains; and better dissolves cleaning agents without causing excessive wear and tear on garments.
- SteamFresh – the SteamWasher’s 20-minute steam-only cycle uses steam to freshen and reduce wrinkles on clothes- resulting in less ironing and fewer trips to the dry cleaner.
The LG SteamWasher and Dryer Combo with Allergiene cycle will come in a white finish, retailing for $1,999.
