Mixing Solutions of Oxygen Bleach:
Sodium Percabonate solutions will remain active for 5 to 6 hours, after which they should be discarded. Unused material may be poured down the drain. It will actually help clean and deodorize your disposal or toilet. Sodium percarbonate solutions are most effective when mixed and used in warm to hot solutions (37 to 65 C).
Always read and follow washing instructions on garments. Test fabrics for colour fastness. Not recommended for woollens and silks. Sodium Percarbonate will not remove rust stains or mineral deposits from hard water.
How and where to use Oxygen bleach:
Dissolve in warm water, 1/4 cup for lightly soiled items, 1/2 cup for moderate soiling or to bleach yellowing whites, use 1 cup for heavy soiled/stained garments. Soak in the tub for 1 hour or overnight. Hot water accelerates the bleaching action. In cold water soak items for longer.
Dissolve powder in water prior to submerging clothing or nappies, do not apply powder or concentrate onto fabrics.
Dissolve 2-3 tablespoons and add to washing machine with SoapNut shells/powder.
