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.

Surprised.

Was not planning on using. Laundry not my thing. Bar has a strong scent. Dropped crawfish on shirt. Used it. Got stain out. Saved my shirt.

Magical Product
Purchased

I bought this on a whim after reading about it on birchbox. At a minimum, I thought it would be useful to wash delicates on an upcoming overseas trip. I had a rayon dress I needed to send to dry cleaning with a very visible stain that had set for a week. With the bar, the stain magically disappeared. It was equally successful on everything else. I am now ordering a second one to be sure I always have a backup (and I've bought everything else I can find by this line).

Cool Idea, Awesome Product!
Sampled

Last week I had the opportunity to put the Wash & Stain Bar to work (thanks to the unapologetic slob who spilled his Bloody Mary on me in business class). Hotel sink, dirty shirt, soap and some Sinatra to keep me company, I set out to wash away the memory of an eight hour flight. After soaking, pretreating and scrubbing I am happy to report the claims made are all true! No stain remained, pleasant scent and smooth hands were a welcome reward. Very impressed with the product, perfect size for stowing in a toiletry kit. Not sure why my Wife complains about doing laundry...

Great Product
Sampled

This is quite handy. I keep it in the bathroom so I can treat stains if I see any before I shower at the end of the day. Works really well.

Lost Bag - Lifesaver
Sampled

This could not have come in my monthly Birchbox at a better time. United somehow lost my bag that I was forced to gate check because they were out of overhead room. They lost it for 4 days. I only had the clothes on my back. I washed them in the hotel sink every night using this bar. I will never travel without one ever again.

It works!

But so does a Tide stick. For the $ it's worth it, but the packaging isn't very good....gets messy after a few uses.
