Soak isn’t just for hand-washables – it’s a great option for the machine, too. We use it for all our favourite dresses, dress shirts, wool socks, store-bought sweaters, winter hats and mittens...you name it!
Soak works in both regular and high-efficiency (HE) machines, and is great in top-loaders and front-loaders. Use it the same way you would a liquid laundry detergent, and run the machine on the delicate cycle. You can use the rinse cycle or skip it – depends on what you’re washing.
- Soak is great for machine-washable delicates: it combines the efficiency of machine-washing with the gentle formulation of Soak. For extra protection, wash items inside your Eco Wash Bag.
- Use Soak for bulky items like washable winter coats, duvets and quilts – anything that isn’t practical to hand wash but could benefit from the gentle formulation.
- We love washing sheets, blankets and pillows with Soak. The light fragrance that lingers after laundry day makes it a pleasure to make the bed – and drift off into deliciously-scented dreams.
Machine washing instructions
- Load. Throw whatever you want to wash in the machine. For delicates, use the Soak Eco Wash Bag for extra protection: simply zip it closed and secure the zipper pull under the tab. Pour Soak into the soap dispenser – add one teaspoon per gallon of your machine’s capacity.
- Wash. Wash the load in cool water on the delicate cycle. Depending on what you’re washing, you may want to skip the rinse cycle (Soak is a no-rinse formulation, after all) and save water.
- Dry. Lay knits and lingerie flat to dry. Line-dry other items to save energy, or use the dryer when needed. Delicate items that can go in the dryer can stay in the Eco Wash Bag for extra protection.
