WASHING AT LOW TEMPERATURES DOES NOT KILL GERMS. THE LAURASTAR DMS STEAM DOES

The germs are destroyed by prolonged exposure to temperatures above 60 °C. Therefore washing at low temperatures is not enough to get rid of them. Washing at 30 °C only kills 10% of germs which then remain disease vectors even after being washed.
The Laurastar Dry Microfine Steam (DMS) exceeds 100 °C. It eliminates germs, bacteria and dust mites in just a few seconds and lastingly purifies your clothes as shown in the Scitec Research SA laboratory’s study.

YOUR COATS ARE RARELY WASHED, BUT THEY ARE SOURCES OF CONTAMINATION

As the WHO reminds us, different viruses and bacteria are transmitted via textiles.

Making them hygienic with Laurastar steam is an act of decontamination after external contact as well as prevention, especially after a day spent in school or on public transportation.


YOUR CLOTHES FACILITATE THE TRANSMISSION OF SICKNESSES, UNLESS YOU SANITISE THEM

Baby clothes, children’s clothes, dish towels and bed linen are magnets for germs. Washing them at low temperatures facilitates the transmission of bacteria from one piece of laundry to another. It is therefore not a good idea to mix your clothes with those of children, their comforter or dish towels! In fact, a study showed that the bacteria, Escherichia coli, which is the cause of gastroenteritis, was found on 25% of dish towels of model households.

Making your laundry hygienic with DMS steam is a natural solution, containing no chemical products, perfectly suited for textiles in direct contact with the skin, and for teddy bears and comforters.

RESPIRATORY ALLERGIES ARE BECOMING A MAJOR ISSUE FOR SOCIETY

The prevalence of respiratory allergies has increased considerably in recent decades. All the epidemiological studies carried out both in Switzerland (Sapaldia, Scarpol) and in Europe (ECRHS) or internationally (ISAAC), have demonstrated that the prevalence of allergic diseases (rhinoconjunctivitis, asthma, eczema) has almost tripled over the last 30 years.
The Laurastar DMS steam eliminates 100% of dust mites, responsible for allergies.


A UNIQUE TECHNOLOGY AND STEAM

Laurastar products make professional technology accessible to individuals.

Our steam is hygienic



SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN EFFECTIVENESS

Microorganisms, germs, bacteria and allergens cannot be eliminated by washing at low temperatures. Fortunately, Laurastar takes care of you. A study by the independent Swiss lab Scitec Research SA demonstrated the effectiveness of Laurastar's hygienic steam. Thanks to its high temperature, its ability to penetrate fibres and its power, Laurastar steam effectively, naturally and lastingly purifies your clothes and all the fabrics in your home.

WHY CAN’T GERMS WITHSTAND THE TEMPERATURES OF LAURASTAR STEAM?

The microorganisms or germs (bacteria, viruses, dust mites, fungi) are made up of proteins that perform many functions within these organisms. The heat of the Laurastar DMS steam causes the deformation (denaturation) of these proteins which then lose their function and thus become inactive or kills the germs.

The temperature and time required to inactivate a germ can vary as each organism has its own resistance to heat, but the higher the temperature, the faster it is to inactivate the germ.

Most proteins are denatured at temperatures starting from 41 degrees Celsius.
