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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Steam washing machines release vapour and detergent into the drum to relax your fabric’s fibres. This loosens stains to make them easier to remove, and stops deep creases from forming in the first place. So, not only will you enjoy cleaner clothes, but they’ll be easier to iron too.
Lots! Not only does steam loosen stains to give a more thorough treatment, but it kills germs and works hard to dissolve detergent as well. It even reduces creases, so you won’t have to spend hours at the ironing board either.
Yes. Steam machines give clothes a really thorough wash, let you get the most out of your detergent and reduce creases. Because vapour kills germs and bacteria, they’re great for people who suffer from Eczema and sensitive skin too. Not to mention you’ll also get loads of other fabulous features.
Not necessarily. The steam cycle itself uses a lot less water than a normal one would. However, because steam washing machines have to actually create the vapour themselves, they do need to reach higher temperatures in the first place.
