Three Ways to Use Our Booster
We will keep this blog fast, fresh and straight to the point - just like our new Powder Booster; our all new and extremely mighty stain remover tool.
You can soak with it, make a paste and of course use it for a good ol’ regular wash.
Here are three of our favourite ways to use our booster so you can get a fresh, new take on stain removal and washing.
1. Sprinkle a little in-wash
Helpful for when: you need an extra push to lift those stains, brighten those whites and eliminate odours - or when you don’t have time to pre-treat / soak stains.
This is a low effort, high reward method. Think of it like daily maintenance.
We would recommend trying this with fresh stains and items that you think might just need some extra clean love eg. white T-shirts and towels.
Just add your scoops in alongside your preferred Dirt Detergent.
For top loader:
4 scoops (60g)
For front loader:
2 scoops (30g)
2. Make a paste for pre-treatment
This method is for those big league stains. Think your toddler’s pasta sauce stained everything, oil and grease and the mystery stains that typically leave you totally clueless. You get it, for the real hair pulling stains, a booster paste will be your hero.
Step 1: Add a scoop of booster and mix it with water in a 1:3 ratio
Step 2: Keep mixing to form a paste
Step 3: Pop it on the stain and give it a little rub
Step 4: Wash as usual after 5 minutes (maximum).
3. Soak those stains away
When to use: when you want to brighten your lights, or help remove those large format hard set stains (mud, blood etc).
This method is once again, low effort high reward. Anything that you think needs a lift or could be brought back to life are the targets here. We love soaking our white garments to lift yellow and grey armpit stains, and table cloths that have seen a big long night.
Step 1: Fill your sink to the highest temperature your garment recommends.
Step 2: Add 2 scoops of booster.
Step 3: Add in your clothes. Make sure you’re soaking similar colours together, soaking can make poorly set dyes run.
Step 4: Leave the clothes to soak. Soak coloured clothes for an absolute maximum of 2 hours. Soak whites for 2 hours or more.
Step 5: Wash as normal
