"I too am hooked on this laundry soap! I no longer use fabric softener or dryer sheets!"

Like all Herbaria products, Burano™ is free of detergents, synthetic fragrances, dyes, enzymes, and brighteners. Those common industrial chemicals can remain in fabrics and often cause skin irritation or allergies.
Burano has the pleasant aroma of our natural soap. The shreds dissolve easily in the wash.
Burano extends the life of your clothes and bedding. Wash delicates with Burano—sweaters, knits, jackets, comforters. It’s safe for washable wool, linen, cotton, silk, and synthetic fabrics.
"Love how fresh everything smells!"

How Much To Use?
In a high-efficiency (HE) washer, use 2 tablespoons. In a top loader, use a little more, about ¼ cup. Just toss the flakes in with the garments.
The 2.5 oz bag of Burano will launder about 14 loads. The one-pound (16 oz) package will launder about 90 loads. Our five-pound bag (80 oz) will launder a whopping 340 loads. Load estimates are based on a 2 tablespoon usage.
"Everything smells wonderful using this. Great for towels and sheets."
Claire Knapp Chosid from our Facebook page
Use Burano alone or combine it with baking soda, borax, or washing soda for enhanced cleaning. Ken swears by Burano with a half-cup each of baking soda and bottled lemon juice.
Burano is named for the lace-making island of Venice, Italy.
These soap flakes have many uses beyond the laundry. Soak vegetables and fruits in a bowl of water with a few shreds of Burano. Wash rugs without fading their colors. Safely clean the children’s toys. Safe also for wood, leather, china. We could go on.
All this and biodegradable, too.
"I've been using Burano for several years and will never go back to commercial products. I had to substitute Tide once and could not stand the overwhelming smell. I had to rewash the clothes with Burano to get rid of the strong odor."
Ellen Leible, Chesterfield, MO
"For my high-efficiency front-loading washing machine, just one tablespoon of Burano gives wonderful results. The laundry is clean, fresh, and much softer than with my previous products. I have always resisted using fabric softeners. I have loads of laundry--kids, dogs, gardening."
Regine Nickel, Medford, NY
"We recommend hand washing our sweaters and garments in cold water and Burano. It’s what we use."

Lily and Leo splashed their way through the neighbor's puddle. No problem!
A few years later, and they're still at it!
