Speed Queen DR7 Featured in Good Housekeeping

DR7 is only dryer on the market to offer dedicated pet cycles

Speed Queen, a brand renowned for its commercial quality pedigree, received another accolade from Good Housekeeping for its DR7 dryer. The groundbreaking dryer earned inclusion in the Good Housekeeping 2021 Cleaning Awards. Awards appear in the September issue of the magazine, on newsstands now.

Speed Queen’s DR7 is the first dryer to offer cycles designed specifically for pet hair removal and drying of pet items.

“It is very rewarding that the efforts of our pet-focused team are being validated,” said Cody Masluk, vice president and general manager of Speed Queen residential. “This team loves our pets, and we are excited to develop solutions for other pet lovers.”

True to its legendary commercial quality heritage Speed Queen had already put the pet hair removal cycles to the test before launch at sites such as dog rescue and service animal organizations and a university veterinary clinic and the results were exceptional.

Pet Plus™ cycles were designed for the 67 percent of U.S. households that have at least one pet and know the pet hair struggle is real.

In addition to Pet Plus™ cycles such as Pet Hair Removal and Pet Items, Speed Queen’s DR7 dryer offers the convenience of steam options, including steam sanitize and steam refresh. A steam boost option will reduce wrinkles and pesky static for quality results
