LG steam washer guarantees 99.9% allergen removal

LG Electronics has released a heartwarming video highlighting the anti-allergen feature of the company’s steam technology. The clip depicts steam as the essential love that keeps a girl close to her valuable teddy bear, which is full of memories of her mother. 

The video also unveils LG’s latest washing machine, Steam Washing Machine, which boasts powerful anti-allergy functions. Sterilization in daily life is growing in importance due to chronic problems caused by harmful substances such as dust and allergens.

“The washer is a great choice for consumers fearful of invisible harmful substances that can cause allergic reactions. The innovative steam technology removes not only 99.9 percent of allergens but also the residue left by dead allergens,” LG said in a statement.

Clothing is washed at a temperature of 50-60℃ for 30 minutes, which effectively removes common household allergens and eliminates 50.9 percent more allergens than other washers, according to the company. 

As LG’s exclusive technology for clothing hygiene and anti-allergen, Steam has also received certification from the British Allergy Foundation for removing 99.9 percent of allergens.
