FAQ's - great stuff to know!
Do I need to dissolve in water first?
You don't normally need to as it will dissolve easily even in cold water, but you definitely can if you wish too.
Can I use Vinegar instead?
Absolutely! You can use 1/4 cup of white vinegar as an alternative
What makes this work?
Its using a simple scientific principal & the power of pH. Vinegar & Citric Acid are 'Acidic' because their pH < 7 at around 2-2.5. Laundry Powder is an 'Alkali/Base' because its pH> 7 at around 10. When you use the acid in the rinse cycle only it will neautralise & remove any left over soap scum which causes the clothes to be stiff. It's even better than commercial Fabric Softeners as it does not cote your clothing in slime & fragrance.
Is this safe for septic tanks?
Citric Acid & Vinegar are mild & biodegradable which should not affect the bacteria in septic tanks like harsh chemicals can.
