lay the garment on a soft surface and dab the
stain with the fingertips and a cotton cloth.
Rust: oxalic acid dissolved in hot water or a
rust removing product used cold. Be careful
with rust stains which are not recent since the
cellulose structure will already have been dam-
aged and the fabric tends to hole.

Detergents and additives
Good washing results also depend on the
choice of detergent and use of the correct
quantities to avoid waste and protect the envi-
Although biodegradable, detergents contain
substances which, in large quantities, can up-
set the delicate balance of nature.
The choice of detergent will depend on the
type of fabric (delicates, woollens, cottons,
etc.), the colour, washing temperature and de-
gree of soiling.
All commonly available washing machine deter-
gents may be used in this appliance:
1) do not use acetone on artificial silk
, then with acetic acid;
• powder detergents for all types of fabric
• powder detergents for delicate fabrics (60°C
max) and woollens
• liquid detergents, preferably for low tempera-
ture wash programmes (60°C max) for all
types of fabric, or special for woollens only.
The detergent and any additives must be
placed in the appropriate compartments of the
dispenser drawer before starting the wash pro-
If using liquid detergents, a programme with-
out prewash must be selected.
Your appliance incorporates a recirculation sys-
tem which allows an optimal use of the concen-
trated detergent.
Follow the product manufacturer's recommen-
dations on quantities to use and do not ex-
ceed the «MAX» mark in the detergent
dispenser drawer.
Quantity of detergent to be used
The type and quantity of detergent will depend
on the type of fabric, load size, degree of soiling
and hardness of the water used.
Follow the product manufacturers' instructions
on quantities to use.
Use less detergent if:
• you are washing a small load
• the laundry is lightly soiled
• large amounts of foam form during washing.
Degrees of water hardness
Water hardness is classified in so-called "de-
grees" of hardness. Information on hardness of
the water in your area can be obtained from the
relevant water supply company, or from your lo-
cal authority. If the water hardness degree is
medium or high we suggest you to add a water
softener following always the manufacturer's in-
structions. When the degree of hardness is
soft, readjust the quantity of the detergent.
