Always follow garment care instructions. Pour one ounce (roughly 1/4 capful) into the dispenser for HE loads. For top loaders, put two ounces (or half a capful) directly into machine before running water. Works beautifully in all water temperatures and is also perfect for colors, whites, and nearly all fabrics, including delicates. For the toughest stains, ECOS has a stain-pretreat function too! Pour a few drops directly on stain, rub it in, and toss your garment right into the wash to get the best results.
