Laundry

Clean and freshen by adding two capfuls of Bosisto's EucalyptusOil to each washing load or use the wool wash recipe. Ideal for overalls, sportswear, socks, nappies and especially sheets and towels. It leaves a fresh smelling linen cupboard and lowers the risk of moths or silverfish.

Bosisto’s Wool Wash Recipe

The following recipe is excellent for soft and fluffy woollens.

-  Pure Soap Flakes ½ packet (300g)
-  Methylated Spirits 1 cup (200mL)
-  Bosisto's Eucalyptus Oil 1 small bottle (50mL)

Mix methylated spirits with soap flakes. Add Bosisto’s Oil and stir. Store in wide necked screw capped jar. Use one tablespoon per mixture per garment. Dissolve in a small quantity of hot water then pour into lukewarm wash water. Hand or machine wash on wool cycle. No need to rinse unless white garments are being stored for a long period - rinsing reduces the risk of yellowing. Squeeze and roll in towel to remove excess water. Keep garments in shape while drying out of direct sunlight.

Pre-Wash, Clothes Spot & Stain Remover

Remove oil soluble grease and grass marks, spots and stains from clothes and fabric with an Oil moistened cloth. Where possible, place an absorbent cloth under the stained area. Brush towards the centre of the mark to prevent the formation of a ring. The Spray can be used to deodorise and clean under shirt arms before washing. Bosisto's is generally harmless to material and it does not stain or smear. However it is recommended to patch test a small area first.
