HygieneShield washing machine and washer dryer (eliminates 99 percent of viruses and bacteria from 2kg clothes in 58 minutes using hygiene therapy); built-in oven with saturated steam and heat (disinfects surfaces of packaged food in 15 minutes under 70-degree Celsius and disinfects metal bowls and glass products in 20 minutes under 120-degree Celsius); and HygieneShield dishwasher (uses the Hygiene Intense function to disinfect dishes).
