Directions from Packaging

USE WITH DETERGENT; For Top Loading Machines - 1. Start washer. 2. Add detergent. 3 Add clothes. 4. Add one Action Pac on top of the clothes. For High Efficiency (HE) machines - 1. Add 1 Action Pac directly to the washer drum. 2. Add clothes. 3. Add detergent to dispenser. Heavily soiled or extra large loads may require 2 Action Pacs for best results. We recommend you handle with DRY HANDS only and reseal the bag after each use. Pacs are formulated to quickly dissolvein water. Do not unwrap or cut open Pacs. Helpful Hint: You can also pre-soak. 1. Toss 1 Action Pac into 1 gallon of the warmest water allowable for your fabric (see garment instructions). 2. Stir to dissolve the Pac and add garment. 3. Soak 1-6 hours, rinse thoroughly or wash as usual.

Understanding scores

EWG provides information on cleaning product ingredients from the published scientific literature, to supplement incomplete data available from companies and the government. The ratings indicate the relative level of concern posed by exposure to the ingredients in this product - not the product itself - compared to other product formulations. The ratings reflect potential health hazards but do not account for the level of exposure or individual susceptibility, factors which determine actual health risks, if any.

HOW WE DETERMINE SCORES

Hazard score

The Healthy Cleaning ingredient hazard score, from A to F, reflects known and suspected hazards linked to the ingredients. The EWG VERIFIED® mark means a product meets EWG’s strictest criteria for transparency and health.
