Most people reasonably assume that if a kitchen appliance looks clean it will probably be free from harmful germs.
However, tests show that white goods can harbour dangerous levels of bacteria.
Washing machines are traps for bacteria especially if washes are done on relatively low temperatures of 40º or less when they become susceptible to bacteria such as E. coli and Staphylococcus aureus.
Washing machines also have a rubber seal or gasket to help prevent air or liquid from escaping. These seals can contain all sorts of bacteria such as yeast, mould and even salmonella or E.coli.
Vestel washing machines now contain inbuilt Biomaster antimicrobial product protection in the door gasket, lifter and detergent drawer - all likely hotspots for germs.
Biomaster is built into the machine during the manufacturing process, so the product protection lasts for the useful lifetime of the machine.
The active ingredient is inorganic and non-leaching, so it stays within the item and doesn’t leach out.
