Lagoon – the development process
The Lagoon™ system was developed by Electrolux Laundry Systems expressly for the professional washing of delicate fabrics in water. Lagoon” was developed with the assistance of the Hohenstein Institute in Krefeld (Germany), the most highly-qualified world centre for scientific research In the field of fabrics.

Unlike dry-cleaning processes, The Lagoon™ completely eliminates non-greasy dirt which, in addition to being the most common type encountered, can now be removed by water.
