To ensure your clothes look their best, wash them in The Laundresses®’s Signature Detergent.

Birchbox Breakdown

Whether it’s dirt, sweat, or sunscreen, you shouldn’t have to jump through hoops to get rid of your ring-around-the-collar. This multitasker from The Laundress® handily eliminates stains in hard-to-reach places and travels awfully well. Stash a bar in your suitcase, and you’ll never have to worry about running out of clean clothes the next time you travel (also, no more bags of stinky clothes upon return from exotic locales).

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.

I tried a sample in a box awhile ago. Decided to order. Last a long time, work so well. Easy to use. Will order again!

Works like magic
Sampled

I use this bar all of the time! I've used it on our rug, duvet cover, shirts, collars - SO many things - and it does the trick every time. I think maybe once I had to go over it a second time because it was a really tough stain but I've been really pleased with the results every time I've used it and so thankful I was sent two of these bars!

Crisp and Clean
Sampled

When I received this in my box I placed it in a cabinet and forgot about it. Last month while packing for a trip I threw it in my bag. I was quite happy I did as I discovered once I had arrived that the collar of a white dress shirt wasn't so white. This stain bar took it right out and made the shirt smell crisp and clean.

The Laundress® Wash and Stain Bar
Purchased

I bought 2 of these bars and gave one to my daughter. It really works on shirts after I have been outside working in the garden. I told my daughter how to use it and she really liked it as well.

Awesome

This is the only stain bar that I can use to get out the grass stains in my 11 year old's baseball pants. I'm well stocked for spring!

Very nice product, and effective. I love this bar- it is perfect for on the go, or delicates. Fresh feeling and works very well.

Bar soap = no
Sampled

Do people still use bar soap? I feel like most people use liquid soap these days. Bar soap gets weird in the shower. It feels sticky even after you use it.

expensive laundry soap
Purchased

This is an expensive bar of soap. It works fine and is useful on stains and while traveling but I don't think it is worth the cost.

Powerful--but Small
Purchased

I've used this product for years, and it works amazingly well to get even my husband's and three sons' collar stains out of their white dress shirts--without being toxic for me to use. I was surprised at how small this "full-size" product was--about half the size (or equivalent to a guest soap) of the last Laundress stain bar I purchased from a national clothing company.

bought for travel
Purchased

I bought this to put in my bag for vacation. The only thing I didn't like about it was that it had more of a manly smell but it worked great for having to wash out you bathing suit after the beach.
