LG Introduces Allergy-Friendly Washer/Dryer
Just in time for allergy season, LG Electronics has introduced a washer/dryer combination that removes up to 95 percent of allergens. The product, called the LG SteamWasher and Dryer Combo with Allergiene Cycle, has a compact design that is meant to fit in closets.
The company had previously released appliances that had been certified as asthma-and-allergy friendly, but the new product is LG’s first such product that is both a washer and dryer. The initiative, LG says, is meant to cater to the 70 percent of households affected by asthma or allergies in the U.S.
“Our new Allergiene steam combo extends this industry-first benefit to more consumers who need to reduce allergens in their washable fabrics in order to be better prepared this allergy season,” the vice president of marketing for LG’s U.S. appliances group, John Weinstock, said in a statement.
