Applications

Wet cleaning

The WetCare system can be used to wash a large majority of items otherwise submitted for dry-cleaning both gently and in an environmentally friendly way. The appeal of the system is enhanced in the eyes of customers through the highly prized 'Blue Angel' label.

Care homes

Outerwear worn by the residents of care and nursing homes can be washed in-house in Miele laundry machines with the WetCare system – without having to resort to contracting work out to third parties.  Unpleasant smells are thoroughly removed.

Hotels

By offering a range of services, e.g. cleaning business and ski wear, a hotel can enhance its profile whilst at the same time improving the deployment of staff and the profitability of an on-premise laundry. 

Stage and theatre companies

High-value costumes as well as soft furnishings used as stage decorations can be washed cost-efficiently and in line with individual needs in-house.
