LG, Samsung Introduce Home Appliances For Pet Care

LG Electronics earlier this week introduced a washer and a dryer that come with steam functions that remove allergens

South Korean home appliance makers are releasing products that highlight pet care features, industry insiders said on Saturday, as they target the growing number of consumers who live with companion animals. LG Electronics earlier this week introduced a washer and a dryer that come with steam functions that remove allergens.

LG said using pet care cycles on their new clothing care appliances will kill dog allergen or cat allergen by 99.99 percent in clothes. The company said its new 24-kg washing machine can also efficiently remove pet-related stains and odors in people’s clothes while upgrading the pet hair removal feature for its 17-kg dryer. The company released the washer with a price tag of $1,645.
