The conventional washing machine is a hotbed for bacteria and germs, because of their preferation of a warm and humid environment. This not only causes unpleasant smells, but also highly increases the risk of a bacterial infection. The germ free washing machine is fitted with UV-C light which imitates an invisible part oft the sunlight to prevent a formation of toxins even at low temperatures. The UV-C radiation leads to a photochemical reaction within the microorganisms so that bacteria and germs decay. Thus the integrated UV-C technique leads to an hygienic and odorless clima inside the washing machine. Completely without chemicals.
