Washing machines

Even freshly washed laundry is not always pleasant for allergy sufferers. Fragrances, washing results and the texture of the fabric surface affect the wearing comfort.

But the complex functions of a modern washing machine also impact the washing result. Due to the direct contact with the skin, the fabric should be free of allergy-causing residues of detergents as well as mites, animal hair and pollen after washing.

ECARF certifies washing machines with the best washing results as regards these allergens, as evidenced by compliance with the following criteria. The criteria reflect the principle that the lowest possible exposure to allergens is generally beneficial.
