Grundig washing machines with FiberCatcher® technology catch up to 90% of microfibres during synthetic wash cycles
Breaking the microplastic cycle starts at home
Phase 1 – Into the water
Every time we wash our clothes, tiny microfibres can end up in our food chain. These microfibres can find their way into oceans causing significant environmental damage.
Phase 2 – Marine life
Tiny, almost invisible particles, shed from our synthetic clothes and enter our water sources. Water that enters into marine life.
Phase 3 – Our food
So when the cycle ends, we could have microplastics on our table. But we can stop that cycle. We have created a new washing machine with a built-in microfibre filter that with each synthetic cycle, helps to stop this microplastic cycle.
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 microfibres – that are currently the biggest concern for the environment – are filtered out and prevented from entering our precious waterways and oceans.See FiberCatcher® Models
of synthetic microfibres are filtered from ending up in our food cycle.
of the FiberCatcher® filter is made of recycled materials.
By replacing vigorous drum movements with a jet of water and detergent that cascades in from the top of the drum, our WaterCare® technology ensures a quicker, gentler wash cycle for your garments; without sacrificing wash performance. WaterCare® also reduces the number of harmful microfibres that are released, helping to protect our water sources.
If your filter needs replacing, you can purchase a replacement one direct from us by clicking the button below. We'll get your new one in the post and you can return your old filter in the same box that your new one arrives in. #stopthecycleBuy a new filter
