Dosing for Capsules

The correct dosing can work wonders for your wash. But remember that water hardness - and how dirty your washing is - can make a difference to the amount of detergent you need to use.


How to get the best results:

  • Place one capsule directly in the drum before the clothes.
  • Use 1 capsule for standard soiling and soft/medium water
  • Use 2 capsules for heavy soiling, hard water or a washing machine from 6-8kg
  • Do not use a pre-wash


Good capsule practice:

  • Do not put in dispenser or use in washer/dryers 
  • Do not overload machine Not for hand wash or soaking 
  • Pre-treat difficult stains & for heavily soiled clothing, higher wash temperatures are recommended
  • When washing at low temperatures use a non-delicate cycle 
  • Always follow the articles care label 
  • Do not wash flame resistant fabrics above 50°C 
  • Not for use on wool or silk Store away from heat, moisture and sunlight.
