Euro Appliances: Miele’s Automatic Dispensing for Convenience & Savings
Miele’s washing machines boast a cleaning system with automatic and accurate detergent dosing that can save you time, money and is better for the environment, while offering best-in-market cleaning results every time. We speak to Miele’s Jon Molyneaux about its innovative TwinDos system.
Doing the laundry is not fun, which is why world-renowned appliance manufacturer, Miele, is always on the lookout for innovative technologies that can make this job quicker, easier and more efficient. Its TwinDos automatic detergent dispensing system certainly does all of the above, plus it makes doing the laundry more affordable and sustainable too.
What is the TwinDos System?
Says Jon Molyneaux from Miele: “TwinDos is a two-phase washing system built into the Miele W1 range of front loader washing machines. It uses two integrated cartridges – the first filled with a liquid detergent (UltraPhase 1) and the second, a detergent enhancer liquid (UltraPhase 2), which includes oxygenated bleach for stain removals. Both UltraPhase 1 and Ultraphase 2 are dispensed at the appropriate time in the wash cycle and the correct ratio depending on the type of wash.”
The UltraPhase 1 detergent is said to last for an average of 37 wash loads, and it helps to dissolve surface dirt, such as sand or soil, and it removes greasy stains, such as chocolate or oil, as well. Ultraphase 2 detergent enhancer liquid will last for around 50 washes, and it aids in removing stubborn stains, such as red wine and grass stains for example.
TwinDos is said to deliver the best liquid detergent system on the market – as verified by the Hohenstein Institute – which confirmed excellent wash results in terms of stain removal, degree of whiteness, anti-greying and accuracy of dispensing. It works equally well for coloured and white clothes, and fabrics. Of course, conventional detergents and fabric softener can also be used with refill containers (sold separately) if so desired.
A revolution in laundry care
Jon notes that Miele has revolutionised laundry care with TwinDos: “No other liquid detergent system washes both white and coloured items as thoroughly as Miele’s 2-phase system. This has been proven in comprehensive tests. The secret of the excellent wash performance lies in the two liquid detergent components UltraPhase 1 and UltraPhase 2: they are dispensed from separate cartridges at the perfect time during the wash process – completely automatically. One of the great advantages of this dispensing principle is that for the first time, you can now wash both white and coloured items perfectly with liquid detergents. A revolution in laundry care, as conventional liquid detergents do not contain bleaching agents. This is only possible with the Miele 2-Phase-System, which dispenses the required active components in stages.”
Miele washing machines in this range also include a conventional dispenser at the top, allowing for standard detergents and conditioners to be used if desired. Select Miele washing machines also support the use of Miele CapDosing, which comprises small portioned capsules for perfect wash results specially designed for specific fabrics and wash cycles, such as wool, silk, cotton care, and synthetic sports gear for example.
How does this help me?
Did you know that 1 in 3 consumers use too much detergent when doing their washing? The TwinDos system reduces the need for manually inserting detergent for every single wash and ensures that only the necessary amount is used for the best results.
Says Jon: “Your Miele washing machine with TwinDos will come with two detergent bottles that are inserted into your machine. The detergent will be automatically dispensed when you put your washing on – meaning you don’t have to measure how much detergent you need or to manually put any in. Instead, the machine judges how much detergent is required, based on the wash programme that you have select and the weight of the load. This will not only save you time, making it more convenient, but it can also save you up to 30% of the detergent used when compared to manual dispensing.”
He says that using too much detergent can end up causing problems for your washing machine over time, and it can have a negative impact on your laundry too: “With TwinDos, you can be sure that your laundry will be properly cleaned and your clothes will remain in good condition for longer. It also helps prolong the longevity of your machine. Along with the reduced amount of detergent used, since there is no need to pre-treat or post-treat your laundry, TwinDos ensures that you use less water to do your laundry, which saves water and thereby protects the environment in the process.”
