Maintaining good household hygiene goes a long way toward improving one’s well-being. Home appliances play an important role in this regard because not only can they handle a lot of clothes and dishes at once, they free up time that can be used to do something else. One of the downsides of using machines to do the work that used to be done by hand is the amount of chemicals and detergents required to get clothes and dishes clean.
LG, with its long history of home appliance innovation, has for years been developing technologies to get clothes and dishes cleaner while at the same time relying less on chemical detergents. One of these innovations is something that all of us can create easily at home with nothing more than water and heat.
Steam has become quite revolutionary. Creating steam is the easy part, but harnessing it and applying it to home appliances is a far bigger challenge. However, LG engineers have managed to do just that, and with great success. In fact, LG holds a number of patents related to the implementation of steam in its appliances. Ultimately, the steam-enhanced performance of the company’s products benefits consumers with cleaner dishware and clothing for a more hygienic life at home.
LG uses powerful natural steam to remove bacteria, and germs all while using less detergents that flow into our wastewater system. Featured in its dishwasher and dryer, high-temperature TrueSteam™ is created directly in the appliance (using water boiled to 100 degrees Celsius/212 degrees Fahrenheit) and dispersed to penetrate fabrics and cut through dirt and splattered food, not only removing stains you can see but also germs you can’t.
LG’s dishwashers apply TrueSteam to ensure spotlessly clean and hygienically safe dishware, glasses and utensils. The company’s natural sanitary solution eliminates common household bacteria and eradicates almost all bacteria including those associated with food poisoning, while also making light work of crusted food residue and stubborn stains, achieving a minimum 99.999 percent when operated on the sanitizing cycle.
For anyone seeking to embrace healthier living, creating a more hygienic home is a good place to start. With innovative application of natural solutions such as steam, LG’s appliances are able to offer the peace of mind that simply can’t be replicated with chemicals alone.
And we have Mother Nature to thank for that.
