Product Description

Orvus Paste is used for scouring wool and delicate fabrics. Quilters and other fiber artists use it as a mild, pH neutral soap for textiles. As a pure detergent Orvus Paste does not contain bleaches, enzymes, fillers, brighteners or other chemicals that might affect textiles and the surfactants are biodegradable.

Be aware that if an acid is introduced into water containing Orvus, such as adding vinegar to the wash or rinse water, it can force the water's pH down to the point where Orvus chemically bonds to wool or silk fibers. Litmus (PH Testing Paper) is your best friend! Always have a few strips around when using natural dyes.
Orvus is sodium lauryl sulfate and there are health concerns out there regarding SLS; educate yourself and, as always, use protection when handling chemicals.


100 grams of Orvus Paste will scour up to 2000 grams (4.4 pounds of wool). If used as a washing agent, will clean more than twice that amount of fiber.

You can combine cotton and rayon clothing & accessories to get the greatest discounts. Your discount is figured on the total number of cotton and rayon items we ship, not how many of each type, style or size. Mix and match them to get the best discount.

Example; adding 1 each of 12 different T-shirts in size Large should give you the 12+ price on all 12 shirts.

Example; adding 12 pieces of 4 different sizes of a garment should give you the 36+ price on all 4 sizes.

Some products may be excluded from discounts, and / or may discount only with themselves. If you have any questions at all please contact us toll free at 800-542-5227 (no buttons, just humans).
