Use this powder when you wash your clouts. Use one spoon for each washing in first compartment of the washing machine to take powder first.
Step 5: Tips
I recommended that you put 4 spoons of vinegar for invest in second compartment and 2 spoons in softing compartment. In softing compartment you can add your favorit softener or use 5 drops of essential oil.
Don’t be scare of vinegar. It dont make any strange smell like someone tell. I use homemade apple vinegar and it was good to.
I recommended that you use vinegar because it prevents limescale in the washing machine like soda. But vinegar is stronger and softening yours clothes. This laundry powder you can use with any temperature and any type of color.
With this laundry powder you safe on money, have no limescale in washing machine, have softer and whiter clothes, 100% natural and your favorite smell.
