Siemens i-Dos washing machine Siemens’ A-30% energy class-rated iQ700 WM14S890GB includes the company’s first integrated dosing system. The i-Dos works by adding just the right amount of laundry detergent required for each load, fully automatically and to millilitre precision. This not only saves time and detergent, but also reduces water consumption by up to 7,062 litres per year while guaranteeing perfect washing results every single time.


Samsung Ecobubble washing machine Samsung’s Ecobubble (WF1124XAC) is the world’s first energy-saving washing machine to generate bubbles that provide the same wash performance using cold water as standard machines offer at hotter temperatures. When washing at 15 C, Ecobubble machines use up to 70% less energy than standard machines washing at 40 C, while still delivering fantastic cleaning results. A bubble generator injects air when mixing the detergent with the water to create bubbles that are able to penetrate into fabrics faster than in conventional washing machines. Consumers can save approximately £250 in energy costs over ten years, as less heat and drum movement is required to aid the dissolution of the detergent in the water.
