Pathogens in and on textiles

Sometimes more than a nuisance

At the latest, the coronavirus has made it clear to all of us what serious effects the spread of viruses or pathogenic bacteria can have. But even apart from serious infectious diseases, viruses, germs, or bacteria in or on textiles can have unpleasant consequences, for example unpleasant odors or allergic reactions. But fortunately, thanks to Braun‘s steam generator irons and steam irons there is an easy and convenient way to reduce the spread of these pathogens.
Braun Irons – Reduce the spread of Pathogens in and on textiles by ironing

Eliminate viruses

Viruses are infectious pathogens that multiply in the living cells of the human body, can be transmitted in various ways and are typically smaller in size than most bacteria.

The Braun CareStyle, TexStyle and FreeStyle series have been tested against the following viruses: Adenovirus, type 5 (dsDNA virus, ATCC VR-5) Murine norovirus, MNV (ssRNA virus, Berlin Friedrich Loeffler Institute RVB-0651), Bovine coronavirus, BCoV (ssRNA virus, Berlin Friedrich Loeffler Institute S379 Riems).

Eliminate bacteria

Bacteria are first of all single-celled organisms that can be found everywhere in our ecosystem, including in the human body or even in the perpetual ice of the Arctic and can be very useful. Some types of bacteria, however, can cause diseases, from a simple skin rash to more serious diseases.

The Braun CareStyle, TexStyle and FreeStyle series have been tested against the following bacteria: Staphylococcus aureus (Gram-positive, ATCC 6538), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (Gram-negative, ATCC 15442), Escherichia coli (Gram-negative, ATCC 10536), Enterococcus hirae (Gram-positive, ATCC 10541).

Why washing your textiles alone is not enough.

Both viruses and bacteria can survive on textiles for a long time, depending on the material. The problem: common household washing machines remove dirt from textile but might not be sufficient to remove viruses and bacteria, because the temperature required for this would bleach the textile colors and damage the fabrics.

Luckly Braun‘s ironing range not only kills 99.99% of viruses and bacteria¹, but it is safe on garments while ironing¹, effectively sanitizing without damaging your fabrics.
