For handwash - dilute the ready made mix in a bowl of warm water. Use 3 tablespoons (or a scoop) to 5 litres of warm water

For machine washing: use 3 - 5 tbs (or 1 - 2 scoops) depending on laundry of ready made mix into the drawer dispenser/washing ball. Every now and then run your washing machine on an empty hot wash cycle with a dose of white vinegar.  

Top tips:

For hard water areas you can add between 50-100mls of white vinegar (distilled) in the fabric conditioner compartment every now and then (this depends on how much washing you do, but start with every 2 months). You can do this in conjunction with a wash or you can run the machine empty and add. 

For brightening your whites, add 1 tbsp of Bicarb of Soda to your wash (or a small scoop of soda crystals) 

For a scented wash, add a few drops of essential oils to your washing liquid mix, whatever scent you like - good ones to add for washing are lavender, citrus or tea-tree.
