Wash & Wear for Longer With Electrolux

The throwaway culture is being turned on its head with the recent rise of reusing, re-purposing and reduction in consumption. And the same applies for the clothes and garments we wear.

A study by Choice has shown that every year, Australians buy an average of 27kg of new clothes, and throwaway 23kg of garments. Up to 800,000 tonnes of clothing and textiles end up in landfill each year 1. With numbers so high, sustainability has fast become a priority on the social conscience.

To facilitate sustainable garment care – from decreasing damage to clothes and reducing consumption, Electrolux have released the UltimateCare 500 Series 8kg Washer/4.5kg Dryer Combo. This Washer Dryer Combo is the ideal laundry companion to ensure your clothes last longer, so you can keep wearing them season upon season.

Efficient EcoInverter Motor
This Washer Dryer is powered by an efficient EcoInverter Motor that delivers a quieter operation, with less vibrations too. When compared to Electrolux washing machines with non-inverter motors, this Washer Dryer reduces energy consumption by 50%2.

UltraMix Technology
Powered by UltraMix technology, this washer blends the detergent and softener with water before it reaches your clothes. At the end of every wash, enjoy freshly clean results without any detergent or softener residue sticking to your clothes.
