Plastic, Glass, Bags, Boxes... why so many choices?
It's all about keeping our core values of sustainability by recycling, reusing and upcycling materials. 
• Our plastic bottles come from other manufacturer's surplus of supply (avoiding the landfill).
• Our glass jugs are made locally (supporting local business)
• The bags can be returned to us and reused by many.
• The boxes can be reused, recycled or upcycled for crafts and other projects.

 

Why no pump?
Again, this is about sustainability and decreasing waste in the environment. We do not automatically provide a pump or measuring cup with with our products because we are trying to reduce waste in the environment.  The pumps are designed to fit all of our plastic and glass containers so no need to purchase different sizes.  

Check out our Close The Loop™ Program for more details on how to help our planet and reduce waste in your home.

 

 

STAIN-REMOVING TIPS
Simply place a little detergent directly on the stain and scrub the fabric together.  Some stains respond better with cold-water vs hot water.  For more details on a specific stain removal, please see our blog posts.
You can also use our OxyBoost to help remove tough stains

 

 

DIRECTIONS
Small load  – 1/2 to 1 oz of detergent
Medium load  – 1 to 2 oz of detergent
Large load  
– 2 oz of detergent

We do NOT recommend overfilling your laundry tub with clothes.  It is best to work with a medium size load and about 1 oz of detergent.  This way your laundry tumbles/swishes around in the tub and gets plenty of water and detergent on all the garments to ensure a proper cleaning.

 

When to use Hot Water
Hot water is good for whites, typical dirty clothes, sweaty active wear and diapers.  Hot water is best to remove germs, kill dust mites and heavily soiled items.

When to use Warm Water
Warm water  is good for cleaning most man-made fibers, knits and jeans.  It will clean without fading or significant shrinking.

When to use Cold Water
Cold water is best for dark, bright colors that bleed or delicate fabrics.  Pre-treat or pre-soak your clothes if items are heavily soiled.
