Don’t neglect your négligée. When it comes to your delicates and unmentionables, try The Laundress Delicate Wash

The Laundress®

Birchbox Breakdown

Whether it’s makeup, sunscreen, or sunless tanner, you don’t have to jump through hoops to get rid of your ring-around-the-collar. This handy multitasker from The Laundress® eliminates pesky stains in hard-to-reach places and is perfect for hand washing or laundering on the go. Stash a bar in your suitcase and you’ll never have to worry about running out of clean clothes the next time you travel.

How it Works

This all-natural bar contains vegetable soap, borax, and essential oils that work to remove tough stains while leaving a clean, fresh scent behind. Not recommended for treating wine, coffee, tea, or fruit juice spills (for these types of tannin-based stains, we suggest using The Laundress® Stain Solution.)

How to Use

For spot treating, wet the Wash & Stain Bar and your garment, working the bar gently into the stained area. Rinse and repeat until the stain has faded completely. Launder as normal. For hand washing, fill a basin with cool water and immerse garment. Rub Wash & Stain Bar into soiled areas and gently rub fabric against itself to build a light lather. Rinse and hang garment to dry.

Vegetable soap, borax, and essential oils.

Good but smelly

I didn't use it as a stash bar.I used it as actual detergent worked great. I wasn't too happy about the smell though.

SMELLS SO GOOD!!

A little bit goes a long way! Used it to wash a couple of shirts for work (uniform) and I'm surprised at how clean my shirts look- and how amazing they smell!!

Handwash...

I used this when I was camping a few weeks ago. Much more convenient than keeping a bottle of detergent. Smells fresh as well

Travel essential
Sampled

Conveniently a dry bar for travel means more room in your tiny carry on zip lock bag for other things. I used to carry a small bottle of liquid wash but this is much more convenient.

Perfect for travelers
Sampled

This is a great product! Much easier than carrying than a bottle of other detergent. We travel for a living so being able to use this after a workout -washing clothes in a sink is awesome! Will be repurchasing this bar! Smell is strong at first but clothes smell fresh after use.

Long lasting scent
Sampled

From what I've seen, it's pretty effective at removing stains. The smell lasts a really long time, but I'm not personally a fan of it. It smells heavily of bar soap and would have liked to seen some kind of fragrance.

Pleasantly Surprised

I received this in my May box and ended up buying it. Far easier (and less messy) than other pre-stain stuff. Does a great job. Compact.

It's a good bar of soap. Leaves a little less residue than most bars of soap. But in the end, it's just a bar of soap.
