Soak

Birchbox Breakdown

That moment when you realize your favorite black sweater has somehow become your worn grey sweater. Laundry fail. This gentle, rinse-free formula revitalizes fibers, prolonging the life of your delicates—from lingerie and sweaters to workout wear and swimwear.

How it Works

A rinse-free formula is just what it sounds like—there’s no rinsing required! Soak is a low-suds liquid, so any dirt or detergent simply comes out in the water when you wash, leaving whatever is left behind to evaporate. No rinsing means it’s easier on your fabrics and is better for the environment too. Available in Aquae (a fresh sea breeze scent), Lacey (a modern blend of spring blossoms and sweet bergamot), Celebration (a subtly sweet, fruity scent), Yuzu (a combination of tart citrus and eucalyptus), and Scentless.

How to Use

Pour one teaspoon into a sink, soak item for 15 minutes, and gently squeeze out the water. Lay knit items flat to dry. Note: Some color may bleed into the water, but no need to worry—this won’t harm your garment. This rinse-free wash can also be used in a washing machine (including high-efficiency machines!), as well as used as a spot cleaner.

The World's Best Wool Wash
Sampled

I was using soak before it was sampled in my Birchbox. As a knitter, I know it is excellent for your wools and cashmeres. It's not too sudsy and gentle enough for your delicates. I love it and its definitely a 5 star buy.

Great for all kinds of delicates

I'm a knitter and have used Soak for years on my handknit projects. It's great to use on really delicate intimates too! I have only ever used the unscented but I'm told that the other scented ones are subtle and lovely.

Nice Fragrance
Purchased

I used this soak on my lace camisole and although it smells nice it does not clean the material. I think it's great for maybe travel and wear but that's it.

Ok, not a favorite
Purchased

It is ok. I wish the scent was a little stronger. I love the idea of this product, just not this one. I will look to see if I can find something similar to try next from Birchbox when this is out.

Really works!

The scent is subtle but very pleasant. It actually works too! I washed my scarves and bras in this and it definitely cleaned them in just a few minutes.

Great for Travel
Purchased

This product is perfect for a quick rinse when you are traveling...since it doesn't need rinsing, it is perfect for a quick refresh....and great from swim wear.

Simple, smells great, and gentle!
Sampled

I'm not gonna lie to you. I procrastinate washing delicates. Besides the fact that I'm always worried I'll ruin something, it is time-consuming.

I love soak! It is gene, my stuff doesn't fade, and I don't have to rinse everything! It makes hand washing easier and faster plus it smells fantastic.

A little pricy, but you need only a teaspoon per wash. It will pay for itself just in the time you'll save not having to rinse!

Been using Soak for years

I love Soak and highly recommend it to anyone! They have lovely, subtle scents. Lacey's definitely my favorite--light, clean, and feminine. I also like Aquae for a more neutral fragrance.

I started using Soak for yarn, wool, wool garments, and handknits (I first discovered it in a knitting shop), but quickly went on to using it for delicates and such as well.

I haven't had a problem with staining or fading, and it's nice to know it won't hurt anything if I leave things soaking for hours or even overnight.

Works really well, nice scent.
Purchased

Actually I wish the scent was stronger. A little spendy for hand wash, but it only uses a teaspoon per gallon or sink in my estimation. No rinse seemed odd to me but it worked great and no wasting gallons of water rinsing, pretty excited about that part. I found the no rinse part suddenly justified the cost after I tried it the first time, for me anyway. I bought full size, had never tried or heard of it before, but had points so took a chance. I would actually purchase again which surprises me, it's a nice little luxury. Love it. I wish there was a travel size solid or liquid available on Birchbox, would be great for traveling!
