The LG Styler, a smart clothes managing and steam cleaning cupboard, now comes in a bigger family size with an expanded interior that lets you store up to six pieces of clothing. The Styler is a clothing care system that uses steam to refresh and sanitize your clothes, getting rid of odors and wrinkles. LG says the Styler can remove over 99 per cent of allergens and bacteria in clothing, with hot steam sterilizing the clothes while also straightening them. A Moving Hanger, which can hold up to five items of clothing, can also “shake” out the remaining wrinkles. The expanded interior means owners can also place larger jackets and winter coats into the system. The Styler is also designed for delicate clothing including brassieres, blouses, and formalwear like dresses and suits. It can also be used to sanitize babywear and plush toys.

There is a Pants Crease Care compartment that can now store larger pants (up to a waist size of 48 inches) while also leaving a neat crease in your trousers (up to 60 centimeters) and smoothing out behind-the-knee wrinkles. There’s a control panel on the front of the cupboard with various cleaning options to choose from including gentle dry, suits/coats, and wools/knits.

The Styler comes with Wi-Fi connectivity, and there are various downloadable styling courses available. LG says a mobile app can also be connected and used to track energy consumption, or to notify users when a cleaning cycle has been completed. The app can also scan pieces of clothing with NFC tags to help decide which cleaning functions the machine should use that’s most effective.

There’s no word on a release date or how much it will cost, but the original Styler is available for around $1,800 from various retailers including Best Buy.
