FAQ's - great stuff to know!
Can I use this on delicate fabrics like wool or silk?
No, it is not recommended as you need something milder like plain soap.
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.
Can I use the Laundry Butter Cleaning Paste instead?
Absolutely! In fact you can strengthen the laundry butter with a teaspoon of sodium percarbonate & boiling water.
Can I just use Sodium Percarbonate?
Yes you can, but its much easier to use by itself in a laundry soak as opposed to a stain removal paste. But you could dilute some with boiling water & spray onto the stain, you just need to dispose of leftovers & not store it.
Can I store this paste?
Not with the sodium percarbonate that has been activated by hot water. You can make a Laundry Butter Cleaning Paste as a base which stores well & then add the percarbonate as you go.
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
