Eco-friendly steam technology used to clean clothes with less water & energy

Apr '07
LG Electronics (LG) has unveiled its newest invention, the LG Steam Washing Machine. The unit incorporates innovative steam technology in the washing process for the first time in the world and will be available in Saudi Arabia through United Yousef Mohamed Naghi Co the sole distributor of LG Electronics home appliances & Consumer Electronics in Saudi Arabia.

Mr. Simon Lee, the General Manager of LG Electronics Saudi Arabia said, after two years of development, for the first time LG has successfully incorporated the eco-friendly steam technology used to clean clothes with less water and energy, while preventing shrinkage and extending the life cycle of the garment. The newest offering also features the Refresh Course process, which allows consumers to deal with wrinkles without ironing.

He added that the LG Steam Washing Machine features the dual spray system, which sprays steam on the laundry for 40 minutes to improve washing performance and help rid it of harmful germs.

According to tests conducted by accredited testing, inspection & research institute, LG's newest offering improves washing performance by 21% over the company's conventional drum washing machines.

Whereas traditional high heat washing processes waste energy in heating up the water and the chamber, the LG Steam Washing Machine utilizes steam for the same result with just half the energy. It also reduces water usage by 27%. Further, the unit utilizes steam technology to clean its interior. Compared to traditional drum washing processes, the technology reduces the time needed dramatically.
