I spend quite a bit of money on clothes and lingerie and it breaks my heart every time something gets ruined in the washing machine – moulded cups of bras become wrinkly, sweaters start to pill and lacy items catch on other things and get ripped. Hand washing things is the obvious solution to this problem, but my bathroom is so tiny that it is quite a big hassle. Plus, who has the time and energy to hand wash all my delicate clothing items?!! Finally, I decided to invest in a simpler solution – Soak Wash.
Soak is a laundry soap that is especially formulated for delicate items of clothing – wool, silk, lingerie and even baby clothes. According to the website, “”Soak is a biodegradable, phosphate-free and eco-friendly wash”. It costs CA$16 for a full size 14oz. bottle and $10 for a smaller 4oz. bottle. The company also sells sachets of Soak for travel or to try them out! It comes in a variety of scents, but I picked the Scentless version, since I have sensitive skin.
Using Soak Wash is super easy – you just soak the items you want to wash in a tub full of water and add about a teaspoon of Soak Wash. 15 minutes later, you remove the soaked items, squeeze them gently to remove excess water and just hang them up to dry. That’s it! It can also be used in a washing machine on the delicate cycle.
And let me tell you, it actually works! I’ve used it on sweaters, bras, a lace top and a lace dress so far. All of them came out clean, free of any dirt/stains/odours and Soak didn’t seem to damage them in any way. The entire process of using Soak is very quick and easy, it takes just 15 mins out of my day and I love that I don’t have to do any scrubbing, rinsing or actual washing! Using Soak is eco friendly too – I don’t have to use a lot of water, plus I save energy by not using the washing machine.
There are some cons though – the omnipresent problem of buying items from abroad is shipping and shipping costs from Canada are pretty high. Luckily, I found a shop in Paris that sells Soak, but it was higher priced and I had to pay a bit of shipping. Ugh. Plus, after soaking your clothes in this laundry soap, you’re not supposed to wring out your clothes, just squeeze them gently to remove excess water. But I can’t remove all the extra water that way and so I have to deal with the clothes dripping all over the floor!
These cons notwithstanding, I really do love Soak. It is the perfect solution for cleaning my expensive, delicate clothes without spending hours hand washing them. It is gentle on clothes, kind to the environment and the scentless version is skin friendly too. What more could a girl ask for?
How do you ladies wash and care for your delicates? I’d love your tips and suggestions in the comments!
