Don’t put your stained item in the dryer until the stain is gone.

The Laundress®

Birchbox Breakdown

There’s a section of our closet that serves as a graveyard for all the clothing items we’ve loved, and lost to pesky stains. Instead of letting that splash of red wine or sweat marks (the horror!) get the best of us, we’re taking a stand. This non-toxic, biodegradable, and allergen-free solution gets rid of stains once and for all.

How it Works

This formula uses biodegradable, plant-based surfactants to loosen stain particles from all types of clothing, from cashmere to cotton.

How to Use

Apply to clothes as soon after stain occurs as possible. Place clothing in small basin and generously apply solution to cover the stain. Use your fingers to work the solution into the fabric, then pour boiling water directly over the stain. For tough stains, let your clothing soak for an hour or more and then machine wash as normal.

Biodegradable, plant-based ionic and non-ionic surfactants and a concentration of active ingredients. VOC, phosphate, phthalate, dye and scent free.

Saved my Eileen fisher sweater
Purchased

I foolishly bought a $195 Eileen Fisher sweater jacket in cream.

I had it in the car and didn't notice that I spilled coffee on it, which gave stains about 3 days to set.

This product removed every spot except 1, and that spot is so faint it doesn't even bother me.

I thought I had ruined my jacket, and kept yelling at myself the whole time I waited for it to dry: "This is why we can't have nice things!" berating.

Well, I guess I CAN have nice things! Thanks laundress stain remover. I purchased this as a white elephant gift but felt silly and didn't give it away, thinking that it would be a shame for someone to get it who wouldn't appreciate it. Boy was I glad I had it on hand.

Not impressed so far
Purchased

I purchased this based on the good reviews on this site and others, and so far I have not been impressed with it. I had a fresh red wine stain on a white napkin that I treated with this and it did not remove the stain after the first wash. I will try it again, but for now I may stick with Wine-Away.

Works!
Purchased

I had a small size of this from the j.crew bridal set and I loved it, so I bought the full size. Simply put, it works. Plus the size is really large, so you won't need to repurchase often. Thanks for carrying this brand, Birchbox!

Helpful in Getting Rid of Yellowing Under Arm Stains!
Purchased

I love their products. Safe on clothes and is great for people who are sensitive to harsh detergents and chemicals.

I decided to purchase this product to get rid of any existing deodorant stains/build up on my sweaters. I've tried different methods but using this product has been the easiest way.

The soap works well and just using a small drop helps. I highly recommend this product.

Great product
Purchased

I ordered this product as the ingredients (or lack thereof of toxic, strange chemicals) appealed to me. I have to admit however, that I was a bit skeptical re. how effective it would be on my clothes. I just tried it last week on a white t-shirt that I splashed red pasta sauce on while cooking. I didn't realize that the sauce was on my shirt, so it dried and sat there for a few days until I did a load of laundry. I was so pleased and surprised to discover that the stains came out completely! I will be ordering this product again, and recommending it to others.

Stain Solution
Purchased

I work in a movie theatre and always ruin clothes with butter and oil stains, and when I saw this product I thought "why not". I just recieved it in the mail today and used it immediately on a nice work shirt. I was really happy with the results! It got all the stains out of the shirt! I thought that I would never find something that would get stains out. This stain solution even got out the few older oil stains from the previous time I wore it. I will definitely recommend this product to anyone who asks how I get those awful grease and butter stains out of my clothes. Thanks Birchbox for having such great products that actually work!
