The Forest Trail Laundry Detergent Sample Pack comes with 5 - 16 oz bottles of detergent (that's 80oz of detergent). Scents included in this sample pack are as follows Cinnamon, Cedarwood, Fir Needle, Lemon, Sportsman (which has NO scent).
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.
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 (130˚F or above) 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 (90˚F) 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 (80˚F) is best for dark, bright colors that bleed or delicate fabrics. Pre-treat or pre-soak your clothes if items are heavily soiled.
