Can Wilderness Wash Pocket Soap be used in a washing machine?
Yes and no. It is designed for washing clothes in a sink (one or two leaves in 1 – 2 gallons of water), whereas a washing machine uses 20 – 50 gallons of water – so you would need 10 – 25 leaves. In practice, launderette washing machines have plenty of soap residue, and therefore 5 or 6 leaves may work for a small load.
