trimat laundry powder

Post by Buck_naked » 03 Apr 2018, 19:03

anyone tried 'Trimat' laundry powder from Aldi?
Been googling, looking for something to soak/wash dirty gardening clothes getting splattered with grunge while whippersnapping.

Grass grunge is the worst type. I did my time as a cricketers mom.
I say you can't beat OMO. But then we don't have an Aldi here.

Biozet: Fail
Problem: Black spotty mould
Solution: after doing some research I think the solution is the white King soaker on the right in the pic.
Have not tried it yet, everything else has failed, except White king Mould and soap scum remover
and it affected the fabric colour.

If it's mould, I successfully used White King on ceiling mould.

Its turning out to be quite a challenge getting rid of it. :eek

I say mould is an immovable force on clothing. But they do recommend bleach so good luck - however you can't use bleach on coloured material can you.

I did see on Mythbusters once that to get blood stains out of the back of a van you really gotta use those special enzymes. Useful tip I thought. O:)

If that hasn't been photoshopped then I'm impressed.
Was that bleach only because it doesn't seem to have taken any of the colour out ?

I used quite a few things:
cup of vinegar in a bucket soak, - no effect
Vanish gold soaker, - no effect
Preen pre wash spray, - no effect
White King Mould and soap scum remover (meant for bathroom use)- very effective
White king Fabric stain remover Powder for soaking - also seems to have an impact
The shirt has gone thru 4 wash cycles.
Have the shirt out in full sun now hoping the UV light might help kill off anything still there.

I think I'll have to put my work shirts straight into a soaker bucket after each days use.
They are getting soaked in sweat from the heat and humidity- that seems to send the mould crazy.
