Your washing machine is full of tiny organisms called microbes, which, if not kept in check, can cause unpleasant odours, transfer of microbes to the laundry and even damage your machine. This is where microbial control steps in, helping prevent malodour, preventing cross contaminations between textiles and the surfaces of your washing machine, and reducing the risk of health problems.


Why is Microbial Control Important?

Some bacteria and fungi can produce foul odours, especially during the summer months when higher temperatures can lead to more sweating. Some microorganisms can potentially cause health problems, especially for people with allergies or weakened immune systems. Microbial control in your washing machine can be achieved with special detergents, occasional washing at 60°C or higher, and regular cleaning.


Sustainability and Microbial Control

By taking good care of our washing machines through effective microbial control, we can make them last longer and work more efficiently, reducing the need for repairs or replacements and saving energy. Moreover, many hygienic laundry detergents are designed to eliminate malodour even at lower temperatures and moreover can save energy and also increase the lifetime of modern textiles.

Microbial control in your washing machine is a key part of keeping both the machine working well and keep your textiles fresh.
