If you have a pesky stain, pre-treat it using The Laundress’s® Stain Solution.

Birchbox Breakdown

Women know all too well that delicate fabrics and special lingerie cannot be lumped in with the normal load of laundry. Whether it’s your favorite silk blouse or a fantastically frilly pair of panties, you need to treat these items with care and above all, a gentle detergent. The Laundress’ Delicate Wash is specifically formulated (and dermatologist recommended!) to clean your tricky pieces without harming them. Plus, the faint scent of rich amber, crisp citrus, and greenery is so delicious, you’ll want all your clothes to smell so good.

How to Use

To achieve the best results, wash your delicates by hand in cold water using two capfuls (1/16 cup) of detergent. Line dry. If washing your items in a machine, protect your specialty pieces with a mesh bag. For high-efficiency washers, set to delicate cycle and cold water and use four capfuls (1/8 cup). If you have a top-loading machine, set to delicate cycle and cold water and use eight capfuls (1/4 cup).

Biodegradable, plant-based ionic and non-ionic surfactants, enzymes (protease, lipase) and blend of essential oils. VOC, phosphate, phthalate and dye free.

Will Re-Purchase

I use this on my delicates and love the scent. I also use their laundry detergent and it is a great product as well. Great product.

Love the Laundress!
Purchased

I've used this product for years for all my delicates, and it does a great job of thoroughly cleaning while preserving clothing and undergarments made of more delicate textiles and construction. The Lady scent is subtle and sophisticated. It's a huge bonus to be able to get Birchbox points for my Laundress purchase!

Smells, but works OK
Purchased

I meant to order the unscented version of this, but ended up with this one instead. I'm annoyed, but had a lot of laundry to do and didn't want to wait around for the unscented to arrive.

The scent is cloying and really strong, but I really like the soap itself so I'm tolerating the scent. Most likely the scent isn't horrible at all, but I'm very sensitive to smells and prefer unscented laundry soaps in general.

The directions said to use a full cap for a sink of delicates, but I used half and it was plenty.

The best delicate wash!
Purchased

I absolutely love this laundry soap. I use it to wash my bra, tights, and hand wash only stuff. I have hand washed and used this in the washer and it works great both ways. I really like the scent and will keep this as a staple in my laundry room!

Awesome product if you have a weakness for silk
Purchased

Bought this to launder my silk blouses and my very elastic-dependent items like shapewear (c'mon, if you don't own some shapewear you're a stick insect or lying). Managed to get a great wash in the actual washer (admittedly an agitator-free model on delicate cycle) and then air-dried the items. Clean, fragrant and perfect. Note: it's not actually recommended for wool, which surprised me. Expensive but cheaper and less environmentally disgusting than the dry cleaner!

Outstanding for silk, wool
Purchased

I have a collection of silk scarves, and some nice wool sweaters. I use this in the washer on delicate cycle (usually with my items in lingerie bags). It gets them clean, there's no fading, and no residue. Smells nice but not heavily scented. Good product.

Lovely delicate wash
Purchased

I bought a bunch of expensive bras and vowed to take care of them instead of throwing them in the washer and dryer like I have in the past, so I looked into buying a wash specifically for delicates that I could use for hand-washing bras in the sink. The Laundress is perfect. It comes in a decent size bottle and you only need a cap or two full for a sinks worth. It smells nice and light and is very sudsy. It really did the trick cleaning my delicates too. I would recommend and would buy again. From the label it looks like you can use it in machines as well.

Great for lingerie and sleep wear
Purchased

I used this product on both lingerie and sleep wear and loved the smell and feel after washing. I was able to use it in my HE washing machine without issue. I put a small amount in a three ounce travel bottle to take with me when I travel. It's perfect!!
