There's no escaping stains. No matter how hard we try to miss a food spillage or to keep our children away from playing in the dirty mud. Alternatively we might have every intention to catch stains, like when we use Reusable Pads or Period Underwear, but we want a solution to  help keep them clean and sanitised and this is possible with Down Under Wash Co.

The team are all about nature and the environment. With the positive uplift in reusable products in recent years, particulary Period Products, their aim is to help keep these reusables clean, that way they can be reused time and time again.

The Magic Ingredient

You've waited for the magic ingredient... so here it is: sodium sesquicarbonate. It's a double salt of sodium bicarbonate and sodium carbonate and has a needle-like crystal structure.

Not only does it work its magic on removing stains, but also as a water and fabric softener and laundry detergent enhancer too.

Sodium sesquicarbonate is made from trona which is a mined mineral, supplied by mother nature. All ingredients used to make the products are selected to ensure they are safe for you, your family and the environment. It's their NO nasty policy! Down Underwash Co, make their soap in Australia and from scratch, it's called cold-processing, which differentiates them from brands that mill their soaps.
