Soaking or Spot Cleaning - Is anyone else always faced with this dilemma?
I don’t know about you, but with two teens and a hubby that wears white business shirts everyday I seem to be always faced with stains on clothes and wondering when I should soak them and when I should just give them a quick spray and then put them in the wash. After getting some advice from Tri Nature HQ, I was given a little insight into some Top Tips for Soaking! . . .
Tri Nature suggests that for effective stain removal, both general and heavily stained fabrics should ALWAYS be treated prior to washing so we split this into 2 categories.
1. For heavy staining or brightening whites, we recommend using the Tri Nature Laundry Soaker. Simply add 1x 25g scoop to a bucket and commence soaking. For best results leave soaking for a minimum of 60 minutes. Then pop in the washing machine with the Tri Nature Laundry Powder. No rinsing prior to putting in the machine required!
Should you use hot or cold water to soak? For stains of blood, fruit, dirt, coffee, soak in cold water and for grease and oil-based stains soak in hot water. Simple!
2. For general staining and discolouration’s you can treat the fabric with the Tri Nature Pre Wash Spray. Simply spray onto the affected area and leave sit for two minutes prior to commencing a wash cycle.
Since gaining this insight and understanding the difference between using hot and cold water, I have never looked back and my family’s clothes are now cleaner and brighter. As always, I wash all our clothes in my favourite Tri Nature Laundry Powder - my favourite is the Ocean Fresh as I absolutely love the fragrance! If you prefer no scent then the Original Laundry Powder is the one for you.
So next time you’re wondering what to do, follow these Top Tips for Soaking and let the results speak for themselves.
