Why Pure Soap Flakes?
Flakes of pure soap can be hydrated to create cleaning, laundry
or washing solution needed. Our flakes are a concentration of pure
vegetable soap that are specially formulated to clean gently and launder
They can be used for green
cleaning, bathing, laundering, and washing. Pure Soap Flakes can be
used alone or combined with other natural cleaning products such as
baking soda, borax, and/or washing soda to make a variety of more gregarious
and specific cleaners that are economical too!
Pure Soap Flakes are perfect for making semi-soft, cream, and liquid
soaps by adding the right amount of purified water for a desired viscosity. Soaps that are
made to be liquid from the start use Potassium Hydroxide for saponification
and have a residue in the end product. That residue can be harmful to
sensitive skin and can acquire in natural fibers over time, such as
wool and wood, causing fraying and dryness.

cottons and lace launder beautifully with Pure Soap Flakes. Most natural
fibers and delicate fabrics benefit from the gentle cleansing and restorative
properties of Pure Soap Flakes. Laundering with Pure Soap Flakes has a

naturally with Pure Soap Flakes:
Pure Soap Flakes can be used alone or combined with baking soda, borax,
washing soda in different ratios for a more gregarious and specific washing mixture.
Pure Soap Flakes : (soap), molecules of soap
attract dirt and grease on one end, and are water soluble on the other
end. Dirt is forced up and out, and suspended in water until rinsed.
Baking Soda : (sodium bicarbonate), a sodium salt.
Perfect for deodorizing, softening water and scouring. Use ‘aluminum free’ baking soda if possible.
Borax : (sodium borate decahydrate) sodium and boron,
a naturally occurring mineral. It can be used for brightening, cleaning, deodorizing, and disinfecting.
Hydrogen peroxide : (H2O2) use as a safer, and eco-friendly,
alternative to bleach as it works through oxidation. It's water with an extra oxygen.
Washing Soda : (sodium carbonate), is related to
baking soda and much more powerful. It softens water and really cuts through grease and
Vinegar : (acid) a sour liquid containing acetic
acid. It’s the acid that cuts through germs and grease and works as a soap clarifier. It should be mixed with water as a rinse, and not to be mixed with soap as a cleaner.

your woollies with Pure Soap Flakes
Prepare : Completely
dissolve Pure Soap Flakes in a bucket, basin, or sink by pouring
a bit of boiling water over a small handful of them. Add cold
water and make lukewarm sudsy water.
Launder : Place the wool garment in the lukewarm
sudsy water. Move and squeeze the garment gently through the
sudsy water. Do not rub or leave to soak, this will fray or
weaken the wool fibers. Give extra attention to soiled areas
by gently massaging with your fingertips and moving sudsy
water through the area until the dirt has lifted. Always support
the garment when wet.
Rinse : Thoroughly
and completely rinse with clean, lukewarm water. This will take
a few, maybe more, exchanges of clean water. Add a ¼
cup of white vinegar in the second to final rinse water to ensure
there will be no soap residue by neutralizing any that might
remain. Rinse again with clean lukewarm water. Squeeze gently
to remove excess water without wringing or twisting to retain
the original shape and size of the garment.
Dry : Lay the
garment flat on a clean thick towel and roll it up. Apply pressure
and squeeze, the towel will act as a blotter., pressing as much
of the water out of the garment as possible. Lay the garment
flat to air dry on a clean dry towel, dry rack or dry screen.
Ease the garment back to its original shape and size. Avoid
excessive or direct heat. Do not hang, always dry flat. Never
put wet wool in an automatic dryer, it will seriously shrink.
Be careful to NOT use: too hot of water, too much soap, too much rubbing, too much
soaking, too much vinegar, too little rinsing, too little
Never use bleach
or washing soda on wool, they will damage protein fibers.
If you need a bleaching procedure, hydrogen peroxide can be
used gingerly. It is a weak acid with strong oxidizing (bleaching)
properties. Vinegar and lemon juice can also be used. The minerals
in your water, if you have hard (alkaline) water, can also damage
Wool is a protein fiber and attracts
critters such as moths. A natural and safe way to repel such
a nuisance is to use 100% essential oils such as basil, bay,
cedar, eucalyptus, lavender, pennyroyal, rosemary, or tansy.
