4x Concentrate
Laundry Liquid



It’s an Australian first, made by an Australian-owned family company. Nothing on the market comes close to Orange Power’s new 4X Enzyme Concentrated Laundry Liquid.

Good things do come in small packages
Orange Power’s new 4X Concentrated Laundry Liquid more than lives up to its small, yet powerful reputation. Just over one Tablespoon will wash a full load of laundry. You’ll save over 50% on leading brands and get 20 washes from our easy-pour 500mL bottle. That’s mighty good value.

However, it’s the environmental benefits that really makes our new laundry liquid special. It has one of the lowest formulas for phosphorus and sodium and is completely garden safe. It also contains the least amount of water that’s ever been put into a laundry liquid making it almost entirely composed of pure product. That means less water is used in its manufacture and a higher concentrate, in fact 4X times that of ‘standard’ liquids, to power through the toughest stains. It does this by using a “World First” combination of natural soap technology and new plant derived, liquid enzymes. The bottle and cap, we’ve put our laundry liquid in is also completely recyclable and we’ve even used a label made from corn starch which is bio-degradable !

Greywater
With the recent drought conditions, which seem set to plague Australia for years to come, many homeowners are now using their laundry and bath water on their gardens and landscaped areas, which is a great idea as long as the Greywater is safe! How will you know? Well, starting with laundry liquids that are low in phosphorus, sodium and classified “garden safe” is your best bet. Regardless of whether you have a top or front loading washing machine, either of which can use Orange Power’s new 4X Enzyme Concentrated Laundry Liquid, thousands of litres of water are used each year and sent down the drain. Harvesting your Greywater and using it on your garden is the ideal way to use this water, and our laundry liquid makes it easy.

Remember to follow common guidelines when using any Greywater. We’ve listed a few of those here:

  • 1. Choose laundry detergents with low phosphorus, sodium and pH like ‘Orange Power’.
  • 2. Take care to avoid watering the same spot – it can affect soil and cause plants to die; move the water around.
  • 3. Be careful when using Greywater on native plants and don’t use on edible parts of vegetables or fruits.
  • 4. Make sure it doesn’t enter swimming pools or flow into neighbouring properties.
  • 5. Avoid ponding, bad smells or damage to plants by restricting use or moving the outlet around to different locations.
  • 6. Keep Greywater away from children’s play areas.
  • 7. In drought conditions it is desirable to occasionally water with fresh potable water.

FAQs

What is the difference between the two products?
We have recently upgraded our packaging to better reflect its purpose and to announce we are the first Laundry Liquid concentrate in Australia to gain ‘GECA’ accreditation. Insert pictures of new packs ‘over’ old packs
The orange label and cap is our ‘Super Brightening’ variant, with the same fresh, laundry fragrance as before.
The green label and cap is our “Sensitive Skin” variant – it has the ‘GECA’ tick of approval and a tested, sensitive fragrance.

What does the ‘tick’ symbol and GECA stand for?
The endorsement ‘tick’ symbol that has the words ‘Environmental Choice Australia’ is the logo of GECA – Good Environmental Choice Australia. This independent organisation endorsers various products to meet stringent international standards (ISO14024 in our case) and allow those products that ‘pass’ to use their logo. Click here for more information.

Why isn’t the Super Brightening 4X Laundry Liquid ‘GECA’ accredited?
The International Standard ISO14024 has determined that an ingredient referred to as ‘Optical Brightening Agents’ OBA (see below for further explanation) do not meet the strict guidelines for use. Unfortunately nearly all Laundry Liquids (and Powders) contain these agents to help make whites look ‘whiter’ or less yellow to the naked eye. We decided to give our customers the choice – if you want the accredited version, use our ‘Sensitive Skin’ variant, as it does not have any OBA’s in it. These OBA’s are really only effective on Whites, so we would recommend you only use the ‘Super Brightening’ variant on your ‘white’ loads.

What are Optical Brightening Agents (OBA)?
OBA’s are dyes that absorb light in the ultraviolet region and re-emit light in the ‘blue’ region. This makes fabric look less yellow by increasing the overall amount of blue light reflected.

Are enzymes safe for the environment?
Yes – the vegetable-based enzymes used in our laundry liquid are completely biodegradable and are actually ‘consumed’ before the end of the wash cycle. They offer the following benefits:

  • Better cleaning performance
  • Better cleaning performance
  • Shorter washing times
  • Reduced energy consumption by lowering wash temperatures
  • Reduced water consumption through higher cleaning efficiency
  • Minimal environmental impact because enzymes are biodegradable

How is phosphorus damaging to the environment?
Orange Power’s 4X Enzyme Concentrated Laundry Liquid has “NO ADDED PHOSPHORUS” and is measured at significantly lower levels than other leading brands.

Phosphorus is an essential plant and animal nutrient – a non-renewable resource that needs to be considered in light of its disposal. When discharging treated wastewater to rivers (as is typical of many municipal treatment works), the phosphorus has known environmental consequences that may lead to the deterioration of the water body, and affect fish life.

However, for more information on Phosphate levels in laundry powders and liquids, visit www.lanfaxlabs.com.au for the ultimate in information on this topic.

What is the impact of sodium in laundry liquids?
The impact of sodium on plants is relative to its concentration, with plant production decreasing with increasing sodicity until such concentrations in the soil permit only the most tolerant species to survive. At what level of sodicity of the Greywater (used washing machine water or other effluent) is a question that can only be considered in relation to soil properties and the vegetation type. Suffice to say that the lower the sodicity, the less risk there is to detrimental plant or soil effects. Orange Power’s 4X Enzyme Concentrated Laundry Liquid has one of the lowest levels of Sodium of any on the market.

As with other components measured in water of a quality equivalent to very clean rainwater, the effect of adding these laundry products is cumulative and using an environmentally-responsible, low sodium dose laundry liquid is paramount.

However, for more information on Sodium levels in laundry powders and liquids, visit www.lanfaxlabs.com.au for the ultimate in information on this topic.

How does high pH affect clothes and Greywater?
The pH of the liquid laundry products, when mixed with the recommended dose of water, should be within an acceptable range for biological systems between 5-9.5pH. Products which create a pH above 9.5 should be avoided. Not only are they damaging to soils but they also break down fabric which can shorten the life of your clothes.

Orange Power’s wash water is effectively neutral.

Can I use my laundry’s Greywater on my garden?
Yes – but remember to follow common guidelines when using any Greywater. We’ve listed a few of those here:

  • 1. Choose laundry detergents with low phosphorus, sodium and pH like ‘Orange Power’.
  • 2. Take care to avoid watering the same spot – it can affect soil and cause plants to die; move the water around.
  • 3. Be careful when using Greywater on native plants and don’t use on edible parts of vegetables or fruits.
  • 4. Make sure it doesn’t enter swimming pools or flow into neighbouring properties.
  • 5. Avoid ponding, bad smells or damage to plants by restricting use or moving the outlet around to different locations.
  • 6. Keep Greywater away from children’s play areas.
  • 7. In drought conditions it is desirable to occasionally water with fresh potable water.
