LG Styler

This could be the ultimate addition to your closet or laundry room.

The LG Styler is designed to refresh clothes without detergents, while reducing wrinkles, removing odors, and sanitizing garments.

LG Styler is ideal for items that are delicate, cumbersome or otherwise less-than-ideal to tumble in your dryer.

Allergens

The Sanitary cycle powered by TrueSteam  helps to reduce household allergens and dust mites for family members who have allergies and sensitive skin.

Gentle Dry

If you own a lot of garments that you drip dry and are tired of seeing them hang from every possible ledge, you’ll appreciate the Gentle Dry setting. The Styler’s low temperature drying system dries clothing and delicates much faster than air drying.

Dewrinkle

The “Refresh” setting, available in Light, Normal and Heavy, enlists steam to remove wrinkles and you can stick a dryer sheet in the built-in “aroma” compartment to help mask odors.

The unit comes with special hangers that fit in notches on the clothes rod that is designed to shake. Moving Hanger Action gently shakes steamed items to remove everyday wrinkles.

Special Care

The Easy Pants Crease Care feature is capable of refreshing and creasing a pair of dress pants in just thirty minutes. Night Care is an extra heavy sanitizing setting. It runs the Sanitary Heavy cycle and then dries periodically every hour for an additional eight hours. The Air Fresh cycle gently removes moisture and dust from fur, leather, and silk without damage.

The LG Styler is rated for 120V, 12.5 Amps so it can plug in almost anywhere. This can be especially handy if your laundry room is on the other side of the house.

The water for the steam is held in a reservoir so no plumbing is needed. A separate reservoir catches the steam as it cools and will require emptying.

The unit is 17 ½” X 72 3/4” x 23” and requires 2″ clearance on the sides so it can’t be built-in like an integral refrigerator.

Smart Diagnosis alerts users via NFC when the unit requires maintenance or repair. With NFC Tag-On, owners can install a free app and download customized cycles specific to a garment type and program the Styler with your phone.

A larger commercial unit will be available the latter half of 2016.

 

LG Asthma & Allergy Friendly Washing Machine

Steam Washer | KitchAnn Style

steamwasher.jpgLG Electronics has launched the first washing machine proven to reduce allergens. The laundry cycle, called Allergiene, is a new feature on the LG SteamWasher.

LG’s allergen-reduction cycle reduces allergens, including common triggers such as dust mites and pet dander, on fabrics by more than 95%. It is the first washing machine to be certified asthma and allergy friendly by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA), an independent non-profit foundation that helps consumers and patients with asthma and allergic diseases.

This new application of LG’s TrueSteam technology will provide relief to the 20% of Americans who have chronic conditions and work continuously to keep common household allergens at bay.

The SteamWasher’s large capacity makes it ideal for large items such as comforters, rugs, curtains and dog beds.

Many people are already aware of LG Electronics’ SteamDryer.  Together, this pair offers unmatched functionality in freshening clothes without any wear and tear.

Whirlpool Duet Aspen Green Steam Pair

The new Duet Steam washer effortlessly removes stains from grass to grease, even sanitizing towels, sheets and stuffed toys without the need for bleach. There are 14 cycle pre-sets, a built-in heater and a special timed-release dispenser option for delivery of OxiClean stain remover. With 6th Sense Technology,  the machine monitors load size, temperature and sudsing.

The Duet Steam washer continues the legacy of eco-efficiency. The brand’s most energy efficient washer to date uses up to 73 percent less water and 77 percent less energy as compared to conventional top-loaders. 

The new Duet Steam dryer features two cycles – Enhanced Touch-Up and Quick Refresh – that infuse clothing with steam to refresh and dewrinkle. Thanks to special plumbing that’s easy to install, there’s no need to add water at the start of every cycle like other brands. Plus, an NSF Certified Sanitize cycle eliminates 99.9% of infectious bacteria.

Did you know Consumer Reports recommends replacing a washing machine when the repair price is half the price of a comparably equipped new machine? They also say to forget repairing and replace a machine older than 6 years old.
