The citric acid used in this product is of food quality and of excellent biodegradability. Most of the laundry detergents are alkaline. The acidic rinsing neutralises the laundry – which is especially important for sensitive people.
Suitable for all types of fabrics and washing programmes. Add to the final rinsing water. Sonett Laundry Rinse helps to rinse out detergent residue and neutralizes the rinsing water (important for allergy-prone people). It brightens up colours, smoothes fibres and softens fabrics.
Caution: Do not apply to calcareous surfaces such as marble, artificial stone, concrete, limestone, etc.
