After using Terra Wash+Mg for a while, I feel the power of washing is little weaker or not working anymore. What could be the possible reasons?
First, measure the weight of your Terra Wash+Mg and make sure it has more than 70 - 80kg(2.5 - 2.8oz).

To remove oxide film, prepare a bowl of white vinegar that you can find in the kitchen and soak Terra Wash+Mg (the whole sachet) for about 5 minutes. After soaking, rinse off vinegar from Terra Wash+Mg by using water. (Vinegar leftover will facilitate magnesium consumption, so please rinse off very well.)
