Did you know...

You can cut back water use by at least 50% using Eucalan. 
The lanolin in Eucalan and the essential oils used to scent the product act as natural fabric softeners and help prevent static cling. 
Automatic clothes washers account for about 20% of our total indoor water use 

So try…

Running your washer and dryer at night to ease hydro and water burdens 
Making it a full load or adjust the water level to the amount of laundry 
Spot cleaning items that are not otherwise dirty 
Pre-treating stains ASAP and let sit for 10 min. prior to laundering 
Using warm or cold water rather than hot 
Adding a few drops of Eucalan instead of a conditioner/softener to the rinse water - this avoids build-up that occurs with other fabric softeners (this works especially good on bath towels/bedding - Lavender is the best - it calms and induces sound sleep) 
Hanging or laying clothes flat to dry 
Hand washing when you only have a few items - it's easy using Eucalan 
Doing back-to-back loads in the dryer to take advantage of the fact that the dryer is already hot 
Cleaning dryer vents and lint traps regularly 
Use “wet-cleaners” rather than dry cleaners for specialty items and pressing 

Helpful Hints 

To test for colour-fastness, place a swatch of the fabric in a jar with water and the cleaning agent you intend to use. Shake the jar and see if the water changes colour and how many suds you get. Or, dampen an inside seam, wait a minute or two and blot with a white cloth. If colour appears, use caution. Most dyes used on yarn are reactive dyes and stand up to washing in 120 degree F. water. If a yarn was dyed at a high temperature it can stand up to that temperature without shrinking or fading. 

Scent Selection 

What scent should I use?

It really comes down to personal preference. You may choose a scent simply because you love it or you could choose one that best suits a specific purpose. Our Benefits and When to Use section (see below) may help you decide which scent you should use.

While we have introduced two new scents, Eucalan’s No Rinse Delicate Wash formula has not changed. Each scent contains lanolin, which is a natural conditioner and dust mite repellent.
