DIRECTIONS: Start laundry cycle until a small amount of water is pooled. Cold, warm, or hot water can be used. Pour detergent in before adding laundry. Use 1/2 scoop (1oz) with soft water. Use full scoop (2oz) with hard water. More detergent may be required for larger machines, severely soiled laundry or excessively hard water. Keep container closed when not in use.
