Where do I put BIORESTORE, Drum or Drawer?

For the best before to after result, add BIORESTORE into the drum with the clothing, as this is where the active ingredient gets to work quickly & effectively without sitting in the drawer & waiting whilst the washing machine ‘’get’s in the mood’’.

BIORESTORE does not get stuck in the drawer. BIORESTORE does not mix with any left over detergent in the drawer or drawer chute (this would stop BIORESTORE from working), & it gets to work directly in the machine drum for the best results.
