Dri-Pak Pure Soap Flakes 1-lb Bag
This product provides relief from: Fragrances & Odors, Sensitive Skin
Dri-Pak 100% Pure Soap Flakes are made the simple, old-fashioned way soap has been made for centuries – from pure soap in a flake form shaped like tiny flat diamonds. Dri-Pak Soap Flakes are made from a 100% vegetable base of palm and coconut oils, which have been responsibly harvested. These pure soap flakes contain no additives – no bleaches, no phosphates, no enzymes, no harsh chemicals, and no perfumes. Because Soap Flakes are 100% pure soap, and not a detergent, they are non irritating to the skin – a bonus for allergy sufferers and those with skin or chemical sensitivities. It’s hard to believe that anyone makes simple and effective products like this any more, but we’re glad to confirm they still exist. Available in a 1-lb bag.
How many Washes are Possible with a Pound of Dri-Pak Soap Flakes?<
The amount of Soap Flakes you use will depend on various factors, such as your water hardness (softer water works better), how soiled the items are that you are laundering, and whether you are adding other agents, such as borax, baking soda or a washing soda. Generally, use enough Soap Flakes to obtain a "rich, creamy lather." If the mixture is slippery, and there are enough suds, you are using the correct amount. See below for an approximate number of washes.
