Usage Tips

Kitchen

  • Apply the cleaning paste on kitchen countertops, cutting boards, and surfaces.
  • Use the paste to clean stovetops, ovens, and the exterior of kitchen
    appliances. The abrasive and alkali nature of the paste helps tackle stubborn
    grease and grime.
  • Has been used for washing dishes by hand and in the dishwasher
  • Soak heavily soiled pots and pans


Laundry

  • Use as a pre-treatment for stains by applying a small amount of the cleaning paste directly to stains on fabric before washing. Let it sit for a short period, then launder as usual for enhanced stain removal.
  • Use in your washing machine to wash clothes.


Bathroom

  • Use the paste on bathroom tiles and grout lines. The abrasive texture assists in removing soap scum and mildew.
  • Apply the paste to bathroom sinks and vanities to remove toothpaste stains, soap residue, and watermarks.

General

  • For an extra boost of fragrance, add a few drops of your favourite essential oil to the cleaning paste before application.
  • Experiment with the addition of percarbonate for areas where a bleach effect is
    desired, such as bathroom surfaces or tile grout.

FAQ

How do I make the mix?

Don’t worry, your product will come with directions inside the pack. However, it is simply a matter of diluting in boiling water, letting set and then whizzing up until it looks like buttercream. You can do this on a stove top or inside a large bowl.

How long does it last?

The prepared paste has a long shelf life. When stored in a sealed container, it remains effective for an extended period, even over a year. If it dries up, simply add some extra boiling water and re-mix.

When should I add essential oils?

We recommend that you don’t add the essential oils when making the paste as it can lose its effectiveness over time, however it does not hurt. We suggest adding the essential oils just before you are using the paste or into small portions you know you will use quickly.

Is it safe on all surfaces?

Almost – please avoid use on aluminium. We recommend testing a small, inconspicuous area first, especially on delicate or porous surfaces.

How do I supercharge the paste?

Follow these simple instructions

1. In a bowl simply place the requirement amount of laundry butter paste.

2. Then add a small amount of percarbonate (eyeball it based on your paste amount)

3. Add boiling water just a tablespoon at a time. The boiling water will activate the percarbonate and it will start to bubble up, so ensure your bowl is big enough as it can rise like bread but faster!

4. Apply it where you need to clean, scrub and rinse away

* Important: Do not store any left-over paste that has been activated with percarbonate. It is an active oxybleach and can be unstable when stored once it has been wet.

Is this septic safe?

It sure is! However be wary for greywater as these are alkali ingredients and we can't say with certainty that it wont harm your plants or greenery.
