    Washing machines with steam function

    How does a washing machine use steam?

    If you’re sick of stubborn creases and clothes losing their shine after the first wash, why not try a washing machine that uses steam? They release vapour into the drum either at the start of the cycle, during it or towards the end, depending on the model. This helps to loosen stains or relax fibres, leaving you with less ironing to do. Either way, steam makes it easier to keep outfits at their best.

    What are the benefits of steam?

    More thorough cleaning

    When steam is added into the drum, it relaxes the fibres in clothes. This makes it easier for the detergent to sink into every thread, giving each one a deeper clean. So, whether it’s a lunch-covered school uniform, or a white shirt with red wine sloshed down it, you’ll rest easy knowing that everything will be taken care of.

    Kills bacteria

    Cleaning with steam gives more hygienic results. This is because it kills germs and bacteria during the wash - not just from your clothes, but from inside the actual drum too.

    Get more from your detergent

    If you’re fed up of finding leftover gel in the drum after the cycle’s finished, you’ll love using steam. The higher temperatures needed to make vapour are also better at dissolving every drop of detergent. Thanks to this, you’ll never waste any, and you’ll get much better results.

    Less time ironing

    Despise the ironing? Because steam relaxes fibres, it stops tough creases from forming in the first place. This means that rather than having to spend hours slouched over the board, it can stay retired in the cupboard instead.
