  • Prefarable, OTTALIN ODX is used in the final rinsing cycle.

Recommended concentration: 1– 3 ml OTTALIN ODX per litre (0.14-0.38 ozfl/gal) of liquor.

In the final rinsing cycle
Dose 3-5 ml OTTALIN ODX per kg (0.05-0.08 floz/lbs) laundry to the final rinsing cycle, dip ratio 1:4 to 1:5, minimum reaction time 3 min. OTTALIN ODX can be used in the final rinsing cycle together with souring agents.

Sensitive / gentle wash 30–60 °C (86-140 °F)
3-5 ml OTTALIN ODX per kg (0.05-0.08 ozfl/lbs) of textile can be dosed in addition to the detergent directly into the washing bath. The pH value of the liquor must not exceed 9.5.
Dip process
Single items can be immersed cold up to 30 °C (86 °F) in the tub, depending on odour intensity and degree of contamination. No wetting agent required. Recommended concentration: approx 3–5ml OTTALIN ODX per litre
(0.38-0.6 ozfl/gal); reaction time: 20 min. Then, wash as required by textile sensitivity.

For removing odours from items that cannot be washed, e.g. cushioning, toy animals or textile decorations, OTTALIN ODX can be sprayed on undiluted or mixed with water at a ratio of 1:2 using suitable spraying equipment (hand pump or sprinkler), provided that the item is wet fast. Then, allow drying on air.

OTTALIN ODX must not be used together with softeners or cationic textile finishing. OTTALIN ODX is to be used as an odour absorber for the rinsing cycle or as an additive for the washing process. It is no substitute for the detergent.
Textile cleaning in solvents
To remove foreign smells in solvent cleaning, an addition of 0.5% OTTALIN ODX related to the cleaning ware weight into the first cleaning bath is recommended for insensitive textiles after a level of 1:3 has been reached. Then, clean 3 minutes in pump circuit.

For sensitive textiles made of angora, cashmere, fine merino wool or other textiles that are prone to shrinkage, the shrinkage behaviour of the textiles must be considered.

When cleaning working clothes made of cotton or cotton/polyester blends in solvents, the addition of 0.5% OTTALIN ODX related to the machine capacity into the first cleaning bath will remove foreign smells, e.g. sweat. The cleaning booster is dosed into the second bath as usual.
