ACHIEVE LAUNDRY EFFICIENCY WITH LG SOLUTIONS
- 08, 21 2017
SINGAPORE, August 21, 2017 — The rainy season poses a challenge when it comes to naturally drying wet clothes quickly and thoroughly. Due to increased humidity levels, clothes are left damp for a longer time, and may eventually develop an unpleasant musty smell. To prevent damp clothes from smelling bad, LG offers two solutions to tackle the wet weather woes – the LG Styler and Washing Machine with TurboWashTM function. These solutions not only help in getting the laundry done quickly, they are also water and energy efficient, thus users can reap long term savings.
Steam, Sanitize and Refresh Clothes Easily
The LG Styler combines the core technologies of three major home appliances – the steam technology of washing machines, the temperature control technology found in refrigerators and advanced air flow control technology – to provide a revolutionary new clothing care solution. By using steam to thoroughly clean garments, the fabric-friendly LG Styler helps to minimize wear and tear through the simple motion of shaking on a moving hanger compared to tumbling in the washer and dryer.
LG’s innovative TrueSteam™ technology gently sanitizes clothes as well as reduces wrinkles and unpleasant odors with ease, leaving clothes smelling and feeling fresh. With just the single touch of a button, hot steam is sprayed directly on the clothes, eliminating over 99.9% of the germs and bacteria. Its Moving Hanger is another convenient feature, gently shaking clothes to further reduce wrinkles during the steam bath. Furthermore, the highly efficient Inverter Compressor allows the Styler to operate efficiently as it enhances the green credentials by reducing energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.
Using the Styler’s Refresh Mode (a 20-minute standard normal cycle) only costs slightly less than $3 per month, based on one cycle per day for 30 days. This is a more cost-efficient solution compared with coin-operated washing machines and tumble dryers at laundromats, which can cost between S$5 to S$13 a cycle. Dry cleaners also charge additional fees for ironing, home delivery and same-day collection.
The LG Styler was also awarded the “Carbon Footprint” label by Carbon Trust, a British non-profit organization established by the government to fight climate change. This label calculates the total amount of greenhouse gas emissions created throughout the product life cycle of the production, accounting for distribution, usage, and waste.
TÜV Rheinland from Germany also approved of the Styler, granting it the prestigious ‘Green Mark’ label. This designation is given to eco-friendly products that have passed the institution’s strict standards for energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, and presence of toxic substances.
With the LG Styler, reduced trips to the dry cleaners will result in greater convenience and cost savings.

Water and Energy Efficiency for the Long Run
LG’s front load washing machines such as the F2721HTWV, F2718RVTV, F1410SPRE and F1409NPRW are awarded four ticks in water efficiency by the Public Utilities Board (PUB). The solution is equipped with sensors, which detect the load capacity and calculate the exact RPM and braking time needed for each cycle. As such, the accuracy ensures optimum performance, saving users up to 31% in water consumption and 12.4% of energy consumption3.
One of the salient features included in these washers is the TurboWash™, which sprays water directly onto fabrics for approximately 120 seconds, making the already impressive rinse cycles even more efficient than ever before. Furthermore, it cuts a regular wash program to only 59 minutes, allowing users to reduce their utility bills.
A shorter cycle does not mean there is a compromise in cleaning performance. The washer’s three-in-one True Steam™ technology ensures the clothes emerge hygienic after a wash. The Allergy Care removes allergens from clothes by optimal temperature control. Steam Refresh freshens up clothes in just 20 minutes – reduce wrinkles and odors without the need for any ironing. The Steam Softener™ uses pure True Steam™ water, the most hygienic softener ever, so that the fabric is ideal for use even by babies and those with sensitive skin.
