For garments with silk and wool/wool blend, we recommend the use of detergents specifically designed for this type of fabric.

Follow the instructions and directions on the label sewn to the garment.

I usually use a liquid detergent. Is it okay if I mix ACE for Colours with the detergent in my machine’s dispenser?

No. For best results, we recommend that you do not mix the two products, but to follow the instructions on the bottle; put ACE for Colours into the washing machine directly above the laundry.

There are pink marks on my clothes after washing with ACE Ultra for Whites. What can I do to remove these?

Sun cream has proved to be an issue for a small number of our customers when using ACE Ultra for Whites because it contains hypochlorite. If this ingredient comes into contact with other chemical products such as sun cream, then it may produce pink marks. These marks can be removed by simply washing again using a detergent and letting the clothes dry naturally, preferably in direct sunlight.

What happened to ACE Gentle?

ACE for Colours is the same product you know and love, just with an improved stain removal formula and a new name!
