Allergy UK considers that this product will, in proper use, reduce exposure to Fungi and Bacteria Reduction in Auto Self Clean Mode.
Don’t remove dirt on the washing tub, stop it from building up! As you use your washing machine day after day, dirt, such as sebum, detergent residue, bacteria and black mould spores, gradually accumulates in places you can’t see. Hitachi’s new ‘Auto Self Clean’ washing machine automatically cleans itself when you do your laundry – clean water at the bottom of the outer tub is pushed up to clean the entire tub before the final spin.
Keep the washing tub clean, while you do your daily laundry!
