Hygienically clean at very low temperatures.

Whether it’s a silk blouse, delicate lingerie or your child’s favourite outfit, often our favourite garments are made from delicate materials. To take special care of them, we have developed ActiveOxygen, an intelligent function in our new Series 8 washing machine that protects your laundry as it washes. For a hygienic clean, even at very low temperatures.

What you love the most, we treat the best.

Thanks to the innovative ActiveOxygen technology you do not have to worry about bacteria or germs on your clothes anymore. Even when you wash your delicate clothes at low temperatures, ActiveOxygen will make sure that bacteria and germs are removed without adding any chemicals.

Hygienic cleanliness at the touch of a button.

ActiveOxygen is a natural substance consisting of oxygen molecules which is produced inside the machine. ActiveOxygen option can be added to most washing programmes. When the wash cycle starts, a cold ActiveOxygen fog pretreats your laundry without any chemicals. At the end of the wash cycle, a second cold ActiveOxygen fog removes remaining germs from your load. In total, both treatments last 30 minutes in order to reliably remove bacteria and germs from your laundry.

Three facts about washing with ActiveOxygen from Bosch.

Do I have to wash underwear, baby clothes, etc. separately?

With ActiveOxygen, washing separately is not necessary anymore: it washes clothes hygienically clean and effectively removes germs and bacteria from all your textiles. Therefore germs will not be transmitted between the different clothes in your washing machine.

Is additional handwashing necessary?

Delicate clothes should be washed at low temperatures. Even at 20°C, ActiveOxygen removes up to 99.99%* of all bacteria and germs from your clothes. The function can be added to almost all washing programmes. For the first time, hygienic results are provided at low temperatures without any chemicals. So you don’t have to wash by hand anymore.

Does ActiveOxygen have any negative side effect?
