  1. Is this for use only on whites? Could it be added to the washer? I think more detailed usage instructions would be helpful. Thanks!

    • Hi Debra! No, the great thing about this is that is doesn’t damage colors. It will whiten your whites, and enhance the colors of your other clothes. You can add it to the washer, but you will have to make a larger amount to be used for that purpose. Thanks for your suggestion, I’ll update the instructions.
