How much TechnoFresh® should I use?
The amount of TechnoFresh® you need depends on how you use your washer.
The preferred method is to put a around a level capful (about half a scoop) of TechnoFresh® directly into the washer drum before adding the laundry
Toss it in so that most of it falls into the holes in the drum and attacks the stuff coating the external drum.
Sprinkle up to a third into the detergent dispenser drawer on top of the detergent so you disinfect the entire dispenser system too.
TechnoFresh® works best when it dissolves before the detergent dissolves.
Experience is the only answer to determine the “correct amount”.
Start with half an ounce for each wash load after you have run the SuperShock.
TechnoFresh® will have maximum effect if you use half an ounce in every load you run.
But every load usually is only necessary for a couple of weeks until the odor is controlled.
Around Â½ to Â¾ oz per load as needed through the week usually works for ongoing wash schedules.
More than one capful/scoop in a load is a waste of material, unless you are trying to remove existing mildew smell from contaminated laundry or get control of a really nasty smelling machine.
