‘Terre de Sommières’ consists of powdered clay which is often ochre-coloured (even if there are different shades: from white to purple, from light brown to green). It is an ultra-fine smectic clay which can absorb up to 80% of its own weight in water. This earth is an incredible dry stain remover that does not leave any trace and which removes greasy stains (oil, butter, fuel, make-up, etc.) even from delicate textiles (i.e.: silk), from furnishing fabrics. It is also particularly effective for carpets, leather, marble, granite, wood furniture, floors (tiles, stone, woods, concrete) … It absorbs and removes many other kinds of stains too: pet urine from pillows, wine from tablecloth, etc.
