New LG Styler Steam Closet to keep you ready at all times.
There’s good news for people who wear suits, jackets, or uniforms every day, LG is unveiling a new steam closet that promises to sterilize and rejuvenate garments while removing wrinkles.
The LG Styler is set to debut at the 2015 International CES. It does not use chemical detergents, and instead uses steam to deodorize fabrics. The hangers themselves also move and gently shake the wrinkles from steamed garments.
This is actually the second-generation version of the Styler. It's equipped with an Easy Pants Crease Care feature, capable of refreshing and creasing a pair of dress pants in just thirty minutes. This model also has a built-in heat pump that removes moisture but recycles warm air which prevents clothes from shrinking while they dry.
The new model is more compact at just 30 percent the size of the original, with the capacity to hold four articles at once. It features rounded edges, a glass door, and aluminum handles intended to match any interior decor.
The Styler features Smart Diagnosis and NFC tagging. Smart Diagnosis alerts the user via smartphone when the appliance needs maintenance, and NFC lets users to download additional cycles to their smartphones, which may then be uploaded to the Styler with a tap of the smartphone to the appliance.
LG claims that the Styler can use steam to sterilize clothes, and can also eliminate approximately 92% of perchloroethylene; the main chemical left on clothes after dry cleaning.
The biggest market for these products is in hotels, where you find business travelers frequently rely on subpar irons and long, steamy showers to take the wrinkles out of clothes.
