Our training schedule for your laundry

The kind of outdoor activity that spurs you on to your best performance is a matter of personal preference, fitness and skill. Whatever the activity, your equipment needs to be right. It can't fail you. If you're outdoors a lot, you know that there is almost no limit to what high tech materials can do. Fibres that are water-resistant, windproof and breathable have taken over the sport industry. So it becomes even more important how you wash your outdoor clothing. Discover the practical sports and outdoor-programs from Siemens - for effective functional textiles.

Perfect cleaning for outdoor clothing - the outdoor cycle.

The modern microfibres, breathable and waterproof membranes and sensitive seams of your outdoor clothing require special care. The outdoor cycle protects functional clothing during washing. Sailing jackets, jogging tops and snowboard pants retain their breathability.

Functional clothing also needs special care when drying. Taped seams are particularly at risk from high temperatures. So our outdoor drying cycle dries at a consistently low temperature.

Protects high-quality functional clothing during washing - the outdoor/impregnation cycle.

The outdoor/impregnation cycle protects high-quality functional clothing during washing. Through a wash-in agent, the right temperature, and special drum movements, the cycle refreshes the water-repellent function of your textiles. When you wash and waterproof clothing with this cycle, full breathability is retained.

To the appliances

No need to stop for stains, thanks to the innovative stain removal system.

Knows how to remove stains: The world's first stain removal system. No two sports are alike, and the same goes for laundry care. Whether sweat stains, grass stains on a football jersey or mud after a rainy bike ride, the innovative stain removal system gives each stain the treatment it requires. So that now 16 of the most difficult stains can be removed easily with Siemens.

The stain removal system also works with special cycles. You can use the 16 stain options in all standard and special cycles (except super15 and wool/hand wash).

Athletic performance - thanks to super15 and super40

After washing your laundry with the super15 programme, you can get your laundry dry in just 40 minutes - with its optimized temperatur curve and special cooling phase: super40.

Wash and waterproof at the same time in just 4 steps

Waterproofing step by step guide

With your Siemens washing machine's sport cycle you can wash and waterproof your outdoor and functional clothing safely and easily. Just follow these four steps to protect your garments from wind and weather.

Add waterproofing and detergent

2. Add detergent and waterproofing:Use a mild liquid detergent in main detergent dispenser II. Then add the manufacturer's recommended amount of waterproofer in the softener dispenser. E.g. TX.Direct® Wash-In by Nikwax.

Set and start the cycle

3. Set and start the cycle: Choose the special outdoor/waterproof cycle. Press Start to start the cycle, which is especially designed for these textiles. Washing will be automatically followed by waterproofing.

Remove your waterproofed garments

4. Finished: At the end of the cycle you can remove your functional textiles. The outdoor drying cycle of a Siemens washer-dryer dries your garmets especially gently.

The ideal solution for any weather - functional clothing.

Outdoor activities demand a lot of material, like breathability, toughness, windproofing and waterproofing. To make sure your quality outdoor clothing serves you faithfully for a long time, it is important to waterproof it and renew the waterproofing as soon as water no longer beads off the surface. So that outdoor clothing with GORE-TEX® protects like a second skin, between the top material (1) and interior lining (3) there is a membrane layer (2), which has more than 1.5 billion small pores/cm². These pores are approximately 20,000 times smaller than a water droplet, yet 700 times larger than a water vapour molecule. This membrane and its welded seams make functional clothing absolutely waterproof from the outside, yet breathable from the inside.

Siemens Washing Machines

Synthetics and microfibres

Synthetic materials absorb less water and therefore less dirt into the weave of the fabric than natural fibres. This makes them very easy to care for. However you should avoid washing them at temperatures above 40°C and at a high spin setting, otherwise this could misshape the fabric. The ideal cycle for synthetics: the Siemens super15 programme – for those who want clean laundry fast.

Modern microfibres are essentially cared for in the same way as all synthetic materials. However you must avoid using fabric softener because this causes the fine gaps between the fibres to close up, meaning that the weave can no longer absorb any moisture.

Fleece

Warm, soft and water-repellant – fleece is a real all-rounder even during the coldest season of the year. And it is also very easy to care for. You can wash your fleece garments easily in the washing machine at 30 to 40°C — in just 15 minutes using the Siemens super15 programme for lightly soiled items. A low spin setting is enough to help retain the extremely soft surface structure of the fleece material.

Care tip:

Unlike other functional textiles, it is recommended that you use a little fabric softener every fifth time you wash fleece garments. This restores the material's softness.
