Blood

We love seeing brands come up with new and inventive ways to use period care products that differ from traditional methods, which often end up in landfill. Brands like Modibodi, Love Luna and Hannahpad are changing the game when it comes to having our period. They are proving how effective it is to reuse Period Underwear or Reusable Cloth Pads to benefit our environment. To help keep these reusables long-lasting, they need to be cleaned well. This is where Down Under Wash Co comes in.

  1. First and foremost, remove dry blood under cold water.
  2. Treat stain with the Fragrance Free Laundry Soap & Stain Remover Bar (soak for 30 mins) before washing.
  3. When washing, on top of your regular washing product, add 2tsp of the Stain Remover Powder to further assist removing stains and allow for fabric softening and an enhanced wash.

Sweat

Who am I? I don't smell but I remove them. I am the Frangrance Free Laundry Bar. What's worse than smelling is having a sweat mark there too. But don't worry, let's clean your clothes up.

  1. Begin by rinsing under warm water to remove excess or dry sweat.
  2. Use the Laundry Bar to create a lather over the stinky area and allow to rest for 30 minutes.
  3. Rinse with warm water and lather again before washing.
  4. Again, use your regular washing product and add 2 tsp of the Stain Remover Powder for an enhanced washing finish.
