LUX SOAP FLAKES have been a staple in Australian households for over a century. From babies nappies through to delicate lingerie, these biodegradable flakes have been a No.1 choice for maintaining fibre softness and minimising skin irritation.
So it may come as a surprise that LUX soap is our product of choice for high strength EXPED ropes supplied to us for cleaning by High-Q - a company that provides equipment to those working at height.
From our initial consultation with High-Q it was established that it was imperative for a manufacturers standard of cleaning to be established in order to maintain the integrity of the rope so as to keep its users safe, alive and insured.
It was concluded that drycleaning and other water based solvents we so readily use for elaundry's exceptional cleaning and stain removal features, do in fact alter the rope thread's essential character of strength.
LUX Soap Flakes were our answer to the conundrum - with their ability to clean, sanitise and maintain perfect threads and weave, as well as being healthy against the skin for long wear.
And 9 years into our contract with High-Q we are still astounded by the results it yields!
As you can see from the photo above - such a simple product works ever so well. (Even if we do have to clean the ropes twice as they are SO dirty when they come in to us!)
