Why Rinenna is recommended as a detergent for cloth napkins
Why is Linenna detergent recommended for cleaning menstrual blood stains that are difficult to remove?
Rinenna#1 How the detergent that does not require massaging was createdRinenna #1 was created when I was running a cloth diaper shop and a customer told me that they know cloth diapers are good, but they can't handle the daily scrubbing. It all started with an email.
Even if cloth diapers continue to be improved, dirt cannot be removed unless they are rubbed and washed.
Therefore, we decided to develop a detergent.
As I experimented with washing cloth diapers, I realized that maybe they could remove all the dirt from the body? So I started experimenting with washing cloth napkins.
We asked many people to cooperate in washing experiments on cloth napkins, and found that using Rinenna #1 and washing in the correct manner can effectively remove blood stains that are difficult to remove.
(After that, I also noticed that the dark stains and odor on my collar were completely removed).
No need for massaging, so it also helps prevent infectionsOf all the dirt that comes out of the body, the dirtiest are poop and blood.
This dirt has a lot of bacteria and there is a risk of infection.
Actually, it is not suitable for massaging.
Avoid touching to prevent infection.
Rinenna #1 laundry detergent is soaked without any pre-washing such as massaging, and after soaking, throw the dirty soaking liquid into the washing machine.
This detergent not only eliminates the need for massaging, but is also suitable for preventing infections.
*If you are obviously infected with some kind of infection, be sure to wear rubber gloves.
Cloth napkins are actually difficult to remove stains from.
Cloth napkins are definitely more difficult to remove stains than cloth diapers.
The reason is that cloth napkins are coated with waterproof fabric.
Waterproof fabric has the important role of preventing menstrual blood from leaking, and is essential for cloth napkins, but when washing, this waterproof fabric does not allow dirt to pass through, making it difficult to remove dirt.
If dirt remains after washing, please try soaking it again.
Thoroughly remove stains from cloth napkins with Rinenna #1
Easy way to wash cloth napkins without leaving yellow stainsWe will explain the correct way to wash cloth napkins using Rinenna #1 laundry detergent.
make a dipping liquid
Add 2 liters of 40℃ hot water and 20 grams of laundry detergent Rinenna #1 (2 scales of the attached spoon) into a bucket and stir well.
Blood coagulates when it comes in contact with hot water above 50-60℃, but it is easier to remove stains with hot water than with cold water, so use water that is about the temperature of a bath.
put a cloth napkin on
Place a cloth napkin, dirty side down, fully submerged in the soaking solution and leave it to soak overnight.
Cloth napkins are lightweight, so make sure to submerge them firmly in the soaking liquid so they don't float.
The stain will not come off unless the dirty area is thoroughly exposed to the soaking liquid.
If you slide it along the wall of the bucket, it will soak in the soaking liquid without trapping air.
Give it a spin in the washing machine
Dip cloth napkins and put them in the washing machine with the soaking liquid.
Now you can wash your clothes without touching the soaking liquid that has oozed out dirt.
The detergent you usually use can be used in the washing machine.
When you use linenna, it will not only remove stains from cloth napkins, but also the laundry tub.
Using fabric softener will reduce the absorbency of cloth napkins.
If you are concerned about your cloth napkins losing their texture, add a small amount of fabric softener to them before washing.
Is it okay to put cloth napkins in dirty water and put them in the washing machine with other laundry? I think there are some people who think so.
Even if the dirty water gets on other laundry after soaking, the dirt will be removed by rinsing it at least twice .
If you are concerned about this, remove just the cloth napkin from the soaking liquid and put it in the washing machine.
When doing so, be sure to wear rubber gloves when removing the cloth napkin to prevent infection.
Just leave it on! Before and after example
Linenna's detergent not only cleans menstrual blood stains, but also poop stains and sebum stains, just leave it on and it will be clean!
Washing cloth napkins is often thought to be a time-consuming process, but if you use Linenna detergent, there is no need to pre-wash! Just leave it on and put it in the washing machine and it will come off cleanly.
