Sonett Laundry Softener - Softens Hard Water for Improved Detergent Efficiency 500g
Our Summary: Sonett are an amazing range of cleaning products. You will love the delicate fragrances as well as the powerful cleaning ability - but the most amazing part is they have worked out a way to renaturise the waste water so that it isn’t harmful to the environment. A total win win for everyone!
Doing the laundry, cleaning and washing are essential to everyday life - but they do pollute water. There can be many harmful ingredients in mainstream cleaning products including synthetic fragrances which can cause allergies and damage to the environment. Sonett are an ecologically conscious range of cleaning products that help protect nature - especially water - and are skin-friendly and economical to use. They are passionate about protecting natural water resources by using completely biodegradable raw materials that increase the cleaning performance of the water, while focusing on its reintegration afterwards to biodegrade naturally in the environment.
By adding the right amount of softener depending on the local water hardness, the most economical use of your detergent is guaranteed. As is the case with their laundry detergents, Sonnet only use ingredients absolutely necessary and acceptable for the production of the softener, and abstain completely from using fillers, phosphates, and other petrochemical softening substances such as phosphonates, NTA (nitrilotriacetates) and EDTA (ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid).
Zeolite A (sodium aluminium silicate), the softener’s main ingredient, is made from the raw materials sodium silicate and sodium aluminate which are easily accessible. This silicate works according to the principle of the ion exchange device, i.e. trapping the calcium and magnesium ions the cause of hard water, thus producing soft water for washing with soap detergents. Soda (sodium carbonate) manufactured from calcium and common salt, reacts chemically with the limescale in the water, thus eliminating from the washing water one of the causes of its hardness. Citrate, the salt of citric acid, obtained by fermenting sugar-containing by-products such as molasses, binds limestone particularly at low temperatures.
100% biodegradable: Zeolite A is a water-insoluble mineral, similar to sand, which is deposited in sewage sludge as a solid. Sodium carbonate, being a mineral by nature, needs no further degradation. Citric acid, an organic substance, is completely degraded into carbon dioxide and water within 2 to 3 days.

The Unique Quality of Sonett Products :
The treatment of water plays an essential role at Sonett. All of the production water (currently approx. 10,000 l per day) is passed through a swirl system. The water flows without pressure through 12 egg-shaped glass vessels and accelerates to funnel vortices to give it back to same energy as pure spring water.
Sonett are also social pioneers: the labelling of many of the Sonett products is carried out by special needs communities close by. Sonett is based on partnership principles and has been transferred to a Non-Profit Foundation. Vegan Society certified.
