Hardness ranges soft and medium: 60 ml (2 fl oz US)
Hardness range hard: 90 ml (3 fl oz US)

Manual washing
Add 15–30 ml (0.5–1 fl oz US) per approx. 5 litres (1.3 gal) of water to the running water, and then place the garments into it. Move very gently only. Rinsing water and wash water should be of similar temperature in order to prevent temperature shock.

Origin and properties of the ingredients
Olive soap: It is from century-old olive groves of Mediterranean countries such as Italy, Spain and Greece that the fruit originates. It is used to obtain the olive oil – in certified organically grown quality – by mechanical processes such as pressing and centrifugation. When saponified with potassium hydroxide, it is the main constituent of Sonett’s Olive Laundry Liquid for Wool and Silk. Olive oil is the best oil raw material for making mild soap and restoring the deficient protective hydrolipidic film. Its well-balanced composition of fatty acids, its healing balancing effect on the cardiovascular system, and the remarkable growth of the olive tree in a 7-year cycle, demonstrate the special proximity and relationship of this oil to humans.
Rapeseed oil / sunflower oil soap: Vegetable oil, saponified with potassium hydroxide, serves to intensify the washing performance. In addition to flax and sunflower, rapeseed is one of the few oil-yielding plants which are cultivated for oil production in our temperate central European climate, and are also certified organically grown.
Ethanol: It is derived from fermentation of starch-containing plants such as maize and potatoes. Ethanol helps keeping the soap liquid, while at the same time improving the fat-dissolving property of the detergent.
Sugar surfactant: Sugar, starch and coconut oil are the raw materials for the sugar surfactant used. The proportion of sugar surfactant compared to the soap content of the detergent is such, that it serves for the calcium soap forming in case of hard water, to be kept finely dispersed and to prevent it from being deposited on the laundry. 

Special product feature
In this product, high-grade pressed olive oil is being processed to obtain soap which possesses outstanding cleansing properties that are nurturing for woollen and silk fabrics and restore their deficient protective hydrolipidic film. Using sugar surfactant, a soap-based detergent for delicate fabrics is obtained which is very user-friendly even with hard water, yet maintaining all positive properties of a soap-based detergent. Olive oil, rapeseed and sunflower oil as well as the essential lavender oil originate 100 % from certified organic cultivation.

Technical data
At temperatures below 10 °C (50 °F), the product changes becoming slightly more solid and cloudy; a phase which will pass, however, once the product is exposed to warmth and by shaking it lightly, if necessary.  

Biodegradability
Soap made from vegetable oils has one outstanding feature, compared to all the other active washing substances, namely that, right after its use, it reacts chemically with the limescale always present in waste water forming calcium soap, thus neutralising its surfactant effect on aquatic organisms (primary degradation). The calcium soap is then, by microorganisms, 100% degraded into carbon dioxide and water (secondary degradation). Ethanol is infinitely miscible with water and reintegrates into the natural cycle within a few hours. Despite the fact that during the manufacturing of sugar surfactants, constituents are being extracted from the plant-based raw materials, i.e. starch, sugar, and fat, they remain completely intact in their natural molecular structure. For this reason it is relatively easy for the microorganisms to 100% decompose these surfactants. Soap and sugar surfactant are classified as being readily biodegradable according to OECD guidelines.

Suitable for septic tanks and filtration systems.

Suggested use

Ranges of application
Indicated for delicate laundry, wool, and silk, up to 40 °C (104 °F); to be used in the washing machine as well as for manual washing. Suitable for HE washing machines.

Application
Fill into the detergent compartment of the washing machine. Do not squirt concentrated washing liquid onto the dry laundry. Doing so might discolour delicate fabrics.

Dosage in the 4.5 kg (10 lb) washing machine
Hardness ranges soft and medium: 60 ml (2 fl oz US)
Hardness range hard: 90 ml (3 fl oz US)

Yield
1 litre (34 fl oz US) of Olive Laundry Liquid for Wool and Silk is sufficient for 17 loads of washing of approx. 2.5 kg (5.5 lb) each, in the hardness ranges soft and medium.

Recommendation
Fill Sonett Laundry Rinse into the softener compartment; revivifies the brightness of delicate colours, helps to rinse out detergent residue more thoroughly, and smoothes fibres.

Manual washing
Add 15–30 ml (0.5–1 fl oz US) per approx. 5 litres (1.3 gal) of water to the running water, and then place the garments into it. Move very gently only. Rinsing water and wash water should be of similar temperature in order to prevent temperature shock.
