I love the crisp feel it gives to my linens, the fresh smell, the slight sheen. My local co-op stock it just for me I think. Last week’s laundry challenge saw me finish 2 cans and I’ve now almost finished a third! Most of the linens have come up well and have been restored to their beautiful, former snowy whiteness. I was able to take some to the Textile fair at Sherborne’s Digby Hall on Saturday but still have a lot to finish. I’ll be back in my laundry maid’s uniform again tomorrow!
