World’s 1st Integrated Microfiber Filter

Grundig washing machines with FiberCatcher technology catch up to 90% of microfibers during synthetic wash cycles

Phase 1Into the water

Every time we wash our clothes, tiny microfibers can end up in our food chain. These microfibers can find their way into oceans causing significant environmental damage.

Phase 2Marine life

Tiny, almost invisible particles go from synthetic clothes into the water. Water that goes into the marine life.

Phase 3Our food

So when the cycle ends, we have microplastics on our table. But we can stop that cycle. We have created a new washing machine with a built-in microfiber filter that with each synthetic cycle, helps to stop this microplastic cycle.

How much of a difference can a Grundig FiberCatcher filter make in synthetic wash cycles?

Synthetic Wash Cycles

FiberCatcher technology is only activated on synthetic wash programmes - Synthetics, Shirts, Sports along with selected programmes available to download from the HomeWhiz app. This ensures that only synthetic microfibers – that are currently the biggest concern for the environment – are filtered out and prevented from entering our precious waterways and oceans.
