FAQ 

Got some burning questions about our range of products? You’ll find all your answers here

How much powder do I use?
Our compostable scoops measure 40-45 grams of powder. This is the equivalent to 2 x tablespoons if you do not purchase a scoop.
I have too many suds?

Try reduce the amount of powder in each wash by ½ a scoop. The smaller your machine, the less detergent you need so for hand washing or small machines 1 scoop is usually enough. For larger machines (and super dirty laundry) try 2 scoops in the main wash.

De-Funk your junk?

Got smelly tea towels, gym gear, towels that just don’t seem to get clean properly? This is usually apparent if using other brands of eco-detergents that don’t contain enzymes. Simply dissolve 1-2 tablespoons of any b clean co detergent in lukewarm water in your laundry sink or the fabulous Strucket, and add your items. Leave to soak for 2-6 hours and wash in your machine on a 40 degree, long wash cycle.
