Step 2: Machine or Hand Wash
After pretreating, it’s time to wash up! Reach for Fragrance-Free Signature Detergent to give everyday cottons, linens, and durable synthetic fabrics a brightening, stain-and-odor-fighting wash without perfumes or dyes. This formula can be used for hand or machine washing and only a few capfuls are needed for excellent washing results thanks to ultra-concentrated, plant-derived cleaning enzymes.
Add your detergent to your machine dispenser or Wash Tub Basin according to machine type and laundry load size. Avoid sticky hands by using our silicone Laundry Measuring Cup to dispense—simply add the appropriate amount to the heat-proof cup and toss right into the machine with your load!
We recommend washing whites, light colors, and heavily soiled cotton or linen items in hot water. Wash darks, colors, and synthetic items in warm or cold water. For color-safe whitening and brightening, add a capful of All-Purpose Bleach Alternative directly to the machine drum and select a hot wash cycle. For those with extra sensitive skin, adding an extra rinse cycle is a good idea but usually not necessary with our gentle detergents.
Pro Tip: If you love The Laundress’s fragrances but want or need a lighter scent experience, mix our Fragrance-Free Signature Detergent with a small amount of your favorite scented Laundress detergent to tamp down the intensity.
