Has anyone found a French equivalent for biotex? The enzyme based pre-soaking powder for laundry.
It’s been a tough season on our gite sheets, what with lots of suncream and hot sweaty people so I have used up the supplies I have. And I hate having slightly grey/yellowed sheets. Have used blanchisseur, bicarbonate and a whole tub of vanish oxyclean but the sheets really don’t look as white as they should do. And some of the sheets are less than a year old so I really can’t afford to replace them so soon.
Must confess I have bought a small box of Ariel, to soak OH’s working togs… so much oil/grease/dirt … not going to send it down the drains though… have a spot in the garden earmarked… weeds had better watch out
You vandal you! Look up the environmental issues around cotton production and you will treat every cotton rag carefully and with respect as many will have been produced by poorly paid labour and using vast amounts of scarce water. So no, we try to get fair trade sourced sheets and keep them in use for as long as we can before recycling them into something else.
