    Washing machines with Fabric care

    Some washers come with programs that are specially for more delicate types of fabrics like wool and cotton. They make sure your clothes get a gentle clean, while still giving you amazing results. This means your favourite items will look amazing for years to come. 


    Laundry without the hassle

    Could your Sunday best do with a bit of TLC before that big date? No need to panic, as some models are equipped with special features to freshen up your frocks and breathe new life into your business button-downs. Now you can enjoy clean clothes from the comfort of your home without having to slog to the dry cleaners every weekend.

    Make your fabrics last longer

    The days of worrying whether that lucky sweater will come out threadbare and 3 sizes smaller are long gone. Thanks to dedicated fabric care programmes, you can rest easy knowing all your best blouses and favourite fuzzy socks will be properly looked after. That means no more cute cardis lost to the wash.

    Blue Woolmark

    If you see the Blue Woolmark Certified badge on any appliance, you can rest assured knowing it’s safe to pop in your ‘hand wash only woollens’. When you’ve selected the Wool programme, it’ll use lower temperatures and a gentler spin, treating them with the utmost care. Because this model is certified and approved, you’ll have that extra peace of mind knowing your fluffy jumpers and scarves won’t shrink.

    Outdoor/ Waterproofing programme

    Whether it’s a waterproof jacket or all-weather trousers, outdoor textiles need to be handled differently. Glued seams, water-resistant membranes and water-repellent fabrics are heat-sensitive, which is why the Outdoor programme keeps a low temperature, has special drum movements, and measures humidity. But it doesn’t just protect the water-repellent element, it replenishes it with the wash-in agent as well. That way, you can wash and waterproof at the same time. 


    Taking care of synthetic items is a breeze with the Bosch Easy-care cycle. It’s specifically designed to be gentle on clothes like shirts, blouses, and t-shirts made from cotton, so you can be sure your outfits for the office are in great hands. 

    Wool Cycle

    Hotpoint’s Wool Cycle takes good care of your winter woollies. It uses a gentle wash to protect the shape of your jumpers, hats, scarves and other items, so they come out looking as good as new. Now, you won’t have to worry about anything being out of shape.
