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.

No, it's not recommended to use on delicate fabrics like this, instead try this solution - 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 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.
How is this packaged?
You can choose from a stunning amber glass Apothecary Jar or in a eco-friendly paper Earth Bag. The sexy amber glass Apothecary Jar, which has a wide mouth so it’s easy to fill. It holds 750ml which is a perfect size, not to big not to small and the lid actually holds about a tablespoon so it’s like an inbuilt measuring cup.The Kraft paper Earth bags. come with a tin tie so they are easy to reseal. Once done, remove the tin tie and it can be home composted. Inside is a corn based bio film, which looks a bit like plastic but it's not. This will just help keep the ingredients fresher.
