To ensure you obtain the best wash results from your
appliance, it is important to use the right detergent in
your everyday wash, and only detergents recommended
for use in automatic machines.
To maintain the appearance of your clothes and
household textiles and to make them last longer you
should use different types of detergent for different
washes, whether for whites, colours or delicates.
We recommend the Ariel product
range which is biological and
designed to provide excellent
cleaning and stain removal even
at low temperatures.
If you prefer to use a non
biological detergent, which does

COMPACT POWDERS AND LIQUIDS

known) are available in liquid or powder form, and
generally require a smaller dosage. Follow the
manufacturer's instructions to ensure the most
economical usage. Pour the detergent directly into the
