This formulation limits one of the problems deriving from the use of only pure Sodium Percarbonate: during its action, pure Sodium Percarbonate creates salts of Sodium Carbonate, which, depositing themselves on the textures of the garments, tend to harden them and make them pleasant to the skin. The inclusion of sequestrants (anti-limestone) in the formula leaves the garments softer and more pleasant, therefore particularly suitable for washing cloth diapers or children's garments. Solara Whitening Percarbonate, thanks to its formula, also has high stability over time. Pure Sodium Percarbonate alone tends to lose effectiveness over time, due to the continuous release of oxygen. In the washing machine as a prewash: pour 2 measuring cups into the prewash compartment and dose the detergent normally into the main wash compartment. In the washing machine as a wash: dose the detergent normally into the main compartment and add 1 or 2 measuring cups of product. Soaking: dissolve two measuring cups in 5 liters of hot water (at least 40 degrees), soak colored garments for at least 30-60 minutes (max 2 hours) or white garments for at least 1-2 hours (max 4-5 hours) .Then wash normally by hand or in the washing machine with the usual detergent. In the dishwasher: to sanitize dishes and kitchen items and eliminate bad smells, pour a measuring cup of product, together with the detergent, into the main wash compartment. Does not contain: enzymes, surfactants or optical brighteners. Store in a cool, dry place away from light. Do not use on delicate items (wool, silk, leather). Contrary to popular belief, a high concentration of sodium percarbonate is not recommended for washing fabrics. Since it is a highly corrosive molecule, it tends over time to weaken the textures of the fabrics and to deposit sodium carbonate salts on the fabrics themselves, which harden the fibers, making them unpleasant on the skin and making them fragile. Solara Sodium Percarbonate, thanks to its balanced formula, avoids these problems, guaranteeing efficacy and respect for the skin and tissues.
