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.
