Whirlpool Corporation Introduces New Hybrid Heat Pump Dryer Technology, HybridCare

Whirlpool Corporation announced the next step in its commitment to sustainability and energy efficiency with its newest innovation in dryer technology. The new Whirlpool(R) HybridCare(TM) clothes dryer WED99HED with Hybrid Heat Pump technology is designed to regenerate energy during the drying cycle to reduce energy consumption while providing dryer speed and performance flexibility. Compared to typical dryers that use large amounts of energy in the form of venting hot, moist air, the Whirlpool brand HybridCare(TM) dryer is a ventless heat pump dryer that uses a refrigeration system to dry and recycle the same air. HybridCare(TM) technology uses advanced sensors tuned to manage energy consumption and temperature to deliver drying performance and energy savings. The three available modes allow flexibility while providing great drying results: Speed mode: used when consumer focus is on managing time; Eco mode: used when optimizing energy is the priority; Balanced mode: blends the performance of Speed and Eco.

P&G and Whirlpool Corporation Introduce SWASH, Only 10-Minute Clothing Care System

P&G and Whirlpool Corporation announced the introduction of SWASH(TM). SWASH(TM) is a revolutionary at-home clothing care system that reduces wrinkles, refreshes fabric, restores the fit lost after wear and preserves clothing, in just ten minutes with the push of a button. The SWASH(TM) system, designed to fit into a living space such as a bedroom or closet, allows people to reduce or eliminate ironing, save on dry cleaning and better care for and preserve clothes -- even hard to care for favorite pieces. The SWASH(TM) system uses an integrated tension system to gently hold clothes in place, while an advanced spray technology applies a uniquely designed solution to the clothing from the SWASH PODS(TM) cup. Then, a rapid thermal drying function combines an express heat system with airflow recirculation to dry clothes quickly. The SWASH(TM) system plugs directly into a standard 120-volt wall outlet and requires no water, plumbing, pipes, vents, special hook-ups or professional installation. SWASH(TM) can be used on such fabrics as denim, wool, polyester, lycra, cotton, cashmere, sequins, delicate beading and lace. The SWASH(TM) system's core benefits are: De-wrinkle: Removes light wrinkles for a clean lookReduces the need to steam or iron clothes before wear by precisely holding clothing in place to allow the formula in the SWASH PODSTM cups to gently relax fabrics as the rapid drying system leaves them ready to wear. Refresh: Neutralizes odors and leaves clothes smelling cleanEffectively removes unpleasant smells from fabrics by neutralizing odors, releasing them from fabrics and carrying them away from garments. The SWASH PODSTM cups add a delightful, fresh scent. Restore: Restores the fit of clothes that's lost after wearOver time and as clothes are worn -- especially sweaters and jeans -- the fibers in them become stretched out, contributing to clothes looking as though they have lost their perfect fit. The formula in the SWASH PODSTM cups penetrates the stretched fabric fibers and then restores the fit to clothes that's lost after wear. Preserve: Extends the life of garmentsGentle on clothes and doesn't wash away dyes. It prevents stress that causes pilling and fiber loss and uses optimal heat to provide the best care for clothing without causing damage. The SWASHTM system is great for use on delicate and embellished clothing that people are often reluctant to care for at home. AVAILABILITY: The SWASH(TM) system is now available for pre-order exclusively at Bloomingdale's stores and on Bloomingdales.com and will be featured at select Delta Sky Club lounges. The SWASH(TM) system will be broadly available for sale nationwide at retailers, such as Best Buy and Bed Bath & Beyond, starting in September 2014. SWASH(TM) will be available in Shadow and Linen with a suggested retail price of $499. The SWASH PODS(TM) cups will be available in multiple scents -- Awaken, Recharge and Unwind -- with the suggested retail price of $6.99 for 12 cups.
