Yes, only use half the amount you would in a regular washer. Forever New is highly concentrated and low sudsing.

As with most fabric care washes and/or laundry detergents an expiration date is not required on the bottles, as the product itself does not technically expire. While they do not “go bad” or spoil, it is possible that they can lose some of their effectiveness in cleaning clothes. Some list a “best used by” date. After this point, the formula can begin to break down and ingredients separate and the product would need to be agitated or shaken to “remix” the product.
Forever New does not list a “best used by” date, as the product is sold in such small containers that it is easily remixed if it becomes hard or cakey from exposure to moisture or left open for long periods of time. If the product remains sealed or unopened we have never had an issue with the product not performing how it should, no matter how long it has aged.
Finally, Forever New is made to order for each new invoice, so we are not sitting on inventory for long periods of time before it is shipped to the individual distributors or retailers. If an order is shipped today, it was either made this morning or last evening.
