Common Questions about Laundry Capsules
First things first: What is a laundry capsule?
A laundry capsule contains concentrated liquid detergent that has been pre-measured to the correct dosage for a normal load of washing. Capsules are also extremely handy to use.
Why should I use this form of detergent?
Laundry capsules are a great form of detergent because they’re really convenient and simple to use. They save you from guessing dosage, adding in more than one product, and from sticky laundry room spills. As long as you carefully follow the instructions below and on the container, capsules will dissolve completely in the wash.
How to use laundry capsules in general:
Simply toss one capsule into the drum before adding a load of clothes! It doesn’t matter if you use a top or front loader, just pop it in at the bottom (for a top loader) or back (for a front loader) of the load. Toss two capsules into the drum for large or heavily soiled loads.
Make sure you don’t overload the machine: capsules need enough space to move freely and properly dissolve. Refer to the care labels of the clothing you’re washing to determine what temperature is best.
Storing laundry capsules safely
Store the laundry capsule pack in a safe place out of the sight and reach of children. Storing capsules properly is critical for the safety and well-being of children or pets. While capsules are extra handy for adults, they can be visually appealing or alluring to children. Be sure to store the container on a high shelf or in a locked cupboard, out of the sight and reach of children and pets.
Reseal the pack after each use. Once you’ve finished with the capsules, always remember to securely seal the pack straight away and place it back in its safe storage location.
