FAQ

Can I use this in cold water?

You can, however you may want to dilute to powder first & you may need a bit more to compensate for the heat. This is most effective in warm to hot water.

Is it safe on colours?

It is safe to use, however some dyes will run no matter what you use, so read the labels, test & wash new clothes separately first.

Can I use this on delicate fabrics like wool or silk?

It is not recommended to use on delicate fabrics like this, instead try delicate & wool wash

Is this safe for septic tanks?

The ingredients are mild, safe & biodegradable which should not affect the bacteria in septic tanks like harsh chemicals can.

Can I add essential oils?

Yes you can, however the cleaning cycle is there to remove odours so its recommended to use them in the Rinse Cycle with the Fabric Softener. 

Do I need a Fabric Softener?

Yes, but not the store bought crap. With DIY recipes like this where you are using pure soap we recommend using vinegar or citric acid in the rinse cycle as Fabric Softener to remove any remaining soap & stiffness from clothes.
