The Laundry Soda is mainly good old-fashioned, basic (literally) washing soda, blended with a detergent based on coconut oil, plus salt, and something to neutralize the hardness of the water to make those work more effectively; it will penetrate the material to remove odours and dirt, and leave your clothes soft and fresh, without any residue. The Oxygen Brightener also strips away dirt, grit and grime, and uses oxygen to brighten colours and penetrate stains -- without chlorine. The Baby Laundry combines the two, and also adds pure vegetable soap, to deal with their often messy clothes, so that no further whiteners or brighteners would be needed.

Baby Laundry (726g/1.6 lb. bag) (810648001273):
Use one (enclosed) spoonful for one regular size load. Wash according to the instructions on the garment, but Nellie's recommends hot water wash only. Always test garments that may fade or bleed.
Laundry Soda (1.5kg/3.3 lbs. tin: enough for 100 uses, on average) (shown at right) (810648001204):
Use one (enclosed) tablespoonful for each regular size load. Wash according to the instructions on the garments; this will dissolve quickly in either cold or hot water and be rinsed thoroughly to leave no residue. Always test on garments that may fade or bleed.
Oxygen Brightener (900g/2 lbs. tin) (810648007671):
Machine Wash: Add one (enclosed) tablespoonful for each small load (in addition to a laundry powder for washing); 2 for regular loads; and 3 for large loads or for very dirty or stained clothing. Do not mix with chlorine, ammonia products, or any other chemicals.
Pre Soak or Hand Wash: Separate whites from colours. Use one tablespoon along with laundry powder in 10L (2.6 gallons) or warm or hot water. Soak for half hour, then rinse thoroughly.
General Stain removal for any water-washable surface (including carpet spots): create solution using 1 tbsp per 16 oz/500ml water. Apply solution to stain. Wait 1-5 minutes. Scrub with sponge or blow with towel. Rinse thoroughly and allow to dry.
Do not get in eyes. Always test on small area of any surface or material before use. DO not use the oxygen brightener (or the baby laundry which contains some of it) on wool, silk, or leather, or on jewelry, latex, paints, or wood.
