The Perfect Wash
The mascot of Natura Amica is Gino, a newborn, precisely because the products are suitable for children and babies.
Gino is the positive thought, the stimulus, the strength that guides the way of thinking and the philosophy of the Brand.
He is the child we should look after and leave a cleaner world and a better future.
You can find it on many of our products to remind us to respect Nature and the world that hosts us.
Gino answers your curiosities or questions on how to use Natura Amica products to take care of your home and the environment in which you live with your family.
Society evolves, needs change and with them the qualities required of a product. For this reason, innovation and continuity are at the heart of Natura Amica's strategy. The new products must complete the range in an intelligent way, the already consolidated products are maintained and scrupulously adapted to the new needs, with a single purpose: to make washing easier and therefore to improve the quality of life by always putting respect for Nature first.
What do the symbols on the dosage table mean? What is a dosage table?
The dosage table shown on all Natura AMICA product packaging allows you to easily establish the dose needed for each type of wash. The dose depends on the degree of soiling of the fabrics (indicated in the columns) and the hardness of the water (indicated in the lines). The dosage indications of Natura Amica products always refer to a load of 5 kg of linen and, in some cases, of 6-8 kg.
How to choose the right dose?
Each pack of ECODET shows the dosage indications. The optimal amount of detergent depends on the amount of laundry inserted in the washing machine, the degree of soiling and the hardness of the water. In the event that the garment is so dirty that it requires a pre-wash, choose the minimum quantity recommended in the dosage instructions. Only by using the right amount of detergent can you protect the environment, save money and avoid the formation of deposits on the washing machine and fabrics.
What does the degree of soiling shown in the dosage table mean?
The garments are not soiled and have no visible stains *. Some garments absorbed body odor. Examples: summer and light sportswear (worn for a few hours), T-shirts, shirts, blouses (worn for one day), guest sheets and towels (used for 1 day). Normal soiling: The items are visibly soiled and / or have some light stains *. Examples: T-shirts, shirts, blouses (soaked in sweat or worn several times), underwear (worn one day), towels, sheets (used one week), curtains not soaked in nicotine (up to six months after the last wash).
The items are visibly soiled and / or have obvious stains *. Examples: kitchen towels and dishcloths, cloth napkins, bibs, baby or football clothing (grass stains and dirt), tennis clothing (red earth dirt), workwear (mechanic's overalls, baker's clothing and butcher which can be washed at home, etc.). Very intense soiling: The items are particularly dirty, smelly and / or have obvious or old stains *. Examples: Dirt on tablecloths, cloth napkins, kitchen towels and dishcloths, cleaning cloths, floor rags, bibs, children's or playwear, sports or football clothes (heavily soiled with mud, dirt and grass ), workwear.
Why should I use a fabric softener?
Natura AMICA natural softeners are 100% Natural, ecological and biodegradable and contain CITRIC ACID, a natural product that removes dirt from fibers making the laundry softer and more fragrant, reducing the electrostatic charge and helping to keep garments new, soft as just bought. In addition, the citric acid contained in the softeners helps to keep the washing machine in an optimal state by preventing limescale from forming on the coil, in the drains and in the drum.
