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

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.

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!

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.

Best for handwashing
Purchased

This is the second time I've purchased this item and it's great for hand washing items such as bras and shirts. It does get stains out very well also.

Great for the frequent traveler
Purchased

Part of the reason I love Birchbox is that it has so many great travel-sized items. This little guy is perfect - maybe the size of a pack of gum. I love that it's solid and doesn't take up any precious liquid space in my carry-on. And I can both wash and clean up stains. Being able to wash on a long trip can significantly cut down on the amount of clothes I have to take!

Great for handwashing

I love this product because it is gentle on clothes. This bar is what I use whenever I need to hand wash any of my clothes. If you love your selvedge denim and need to give them a gentle but thorough cleaning I would recommend this product.

Good, but grandma knows best
Sampled

I tested my sample out with a few of my clothes that had some stains on them.

The bar did an OK job, but for my money's worth, I've had more success with either hydrogen peroxide (depending on the fabric), or a combination of dish soap and baking soda (surprisingly effective, especially with pit stains).

It's not that the bar doesn't work, it's that there's probably stuff in your house that you already have and will do an equal or better job.
