Special product feature
Each bleaching wears out the fabric. By adding the bleaching agent separately, its bleaching effect is employed only where it is specifically needed for stain removal and white laundry. Oxygen bleaching using sodium percarbonate is the most environmental-friendly alternative to the bleaching of laundry in the sunlight.
Ranges of application
For bleaching white laundry and removing stains and discolorations from white and colour-fast fabrics.
Being without any petrochemical bleaching agents, the Sonett Bleach Complex and Stain Remover is not effective in the washing machine but from 50 °C (122 °F) upwards. If the bleaching agent can act for longer, e.g. having the laundry soak overnight in the Bleach Complex, it is effective at as low as 30 °C (86 °F).
In the 4.5 kg (10 lb) washing machine, from 50 °C (122 °F)
Fill 60 ml / 60 g (2 fl oz US / 2 oz) of Bleach Complex into the detergent compartment of the washing machine during the main washing cycle.
Soaking of heavily soiled children's garments or laundry which is washable up to 40 °C (104 °F) only
Dissolve 30 ml / 30 g (1 fl oz US / 1 oz) in a bucket with approx. 3 litres (100 fl oz US) of warm water, add the garments and weigh them down, e.g. with a plate, so that they remain submerged in the bleaching solution. Leave to act overnight. Then wash as usual in the washing machine.
In the dishwasher
To remove stubborn tea and coffee stains on dishes.
Fill 1 heaped teaspoon (approx. 10 ml/0.34 fl oz) into the dispensing chamber of the dishwasher in addition to the dishwasher detergent.
Sodium percarbonate > 30 %
(Soda) sodium carbonate 15–30 %
List of ingredients as per EC 648 / 2004
Sodium percarbonate, sodium carbonate
Contains sodium percarbonate. Harmful if swallowed. Causes serious eye damage. If medical advice is needed, have product container or label at hand. Keep out of reach of children. Wear eye protection. If in eyes: Rinse cautiously with water for several minutes. Remove contact lenses, if present and easy to do. Continue rinsing. Immediately call a poison center or doctor/physician. Dispose of contents/container according to the local/national regulations.
Origin and properties of the ingredients
Sodium percarbonate is a molecular complex obtained by hydrogen peroxide adsorbing on to sodium carbonate (wash soda). Exposed to warmth (from 50 °C / 122 °F upwards), the hydrogen peroxide is being broken down again into water and active oxygen. With increasing temperature the reaction is being accelerated in such a way that the bleaching effect in the washing machine is at its best once reached 95 °C (200 °F). The oxygen being released is especially active on organic stains such as grass stains, fruit stains, etc. by oxidizing the dyestuffs thus making them colourless, or by turning adhering, stain-causing substances into water-soluble ones again by oxidizing them.
Density: 20 °C approx. 0.9–1.1 g/cm³
68 °F approx. 0.032–0.039 oz / in³
pH value: 20 °C, 5 g / l itre H₂O
68 °F, 0.18 oz / 34 fl oz (US) H₂O
Keep container closed, in a cool and dry place.
Sodium percarbonate, during the washing and bleaching process already disintegrates into mineral soda, water and oxygen, thus leaving the washing machine in a state which requires no further degradation, i.e. bleaching and degradation process are one and the same. Sodium carbonate being a mineral needs no further degradation.
Suitable for septic tanks and filtration systems.
