Do not overload washing machine. Adapt number of pads to size of washload, amount of soiled laundry and dye released (for heavily bleeding items, use Colour Catcher sheets in addition). Use pad only once. Do not use in dryer (when using washer/dryer take the pad out before drying cycle). Wash new coloured items separately at least 6 washes. Wash dark-coloured items separately. Do not cut or perforate the pad. Do not use on wool, silk or leather. Store in closed original box in cool, dry place.
