Why has it now been rebranded and fragrance added? This has been my go-to for no allergy washing for years. Are we to be subjected to more perfumed products when the product has always been safe for allergy sufferers? Not happy. Please explain why?????
Have you stopped making lux flakes I've been to Woolworths stores and told it's been deleted tried coles and the shelf is empty
Where can I buy lux?
Where to buy Lux pure soap flake?
where can I buy this product, Lux pure soap flakes?
can you wash rain proofed jackets with lux flakes without ruining the rain proofing?
I'm no 'washing doctor' however, I do know that the rain proofing on most jackets is a chemical coating added onto the surface of the fabric. So, I feel that if you wash it in any kind of soap, it would like come off and therefore would no longer be water-proof.
If it's got a stain on it, I'd carefully sponge it off. If it's just a bit 'whiffy' hang it out in the sun for a day. But, probably the best thing to do, would be take it to a dry cleaners and get their advice, they are 'washing doctors'.
Hope that helps.
I have heard this product is good for severe sunburn when dissolved in warm water , then left to cool then applied to burnt area. Is there any truth to this rumour?
I have always trusted cooling the skin off ASAP. Soaking in a bath of tepid for up to 30 minutes. If you are older than 26 years you can take some aspirin as this tricks the brain into lowering your body temperature therefore the damage caused by the bodies reaction to the burn is reduced. A normal recommended dose is required. Caution is asked if you are on blood thinning medications. If you have never taken aspirin before please check with your medical adviser first. The second stage is to apply aloe vera gel to the burnt area ,but NOT over broken blisters or skin, then, only after scarring has occurred. As the burn heals you may apply rose hip or vitamin e oils or creams. Some people ask if the aloe vera plant sap is as good as the purchased product ,a good question . The bioavailability of the purchased gel appears to be more effective. The above process is also useful for minor burns.
30 years ago I suffered a severe burn as a child.
The burn dr suggested soaking in Lux flakes (dissolved in warm water) every day, as he had heard positive things about it.
To this day I have zero scarring
