Step 1: Pretreat Stains

Don’t skip this essential step! The extra moment it takes to pretreat stains will pay off in dividends as it’ll help extend the longevity of your garments and linens by keeping them stain-free and in top condition for longer.

To lift oil and grease-based stains like salad oil, makeup, and dirt, grab the Wash & Stain Bar. Run it under tepid water, then massage the Stain Brush over the bar to work it into a lather. Now work the brush into the stains using gentle, circular motions, which will help to melt away grease and grime.

For color-rich marks like coffee, ink, juice, grass and pit stains, reach for our concentrated liquid Stain Solution. Pour a few drops over the stained (or stain-prone areas like collars and underarms) areas and work in with your fingers or Stain Brush. If you’re facing tougher, older stains on white or light colored garments or bedding, try sprinkling ½ a capful of our oxygen-based, non-chlorine All-Purpose Bleach Alternative beads on top of where you’ve applied Stain Solution. Then dip your Stain Brush into some hot water and rub into the fabric in small circles to form a stronger, stain removing paste over the stained area.

Step 2: Machine or Hand Wash

Time to dive into your own little slice of paradise! Place everyday garments and linens into the washing machine or Wash Tub Basin if handwashing, and add the appropriate amount of Isle Signature Detergent depending on laundry load size. Only a small amount of this concentrated, dermatologist-tested formula is needed for beautifully clean, soft, and fresh laundry. Level up and use our heat-proof, silicone Laundry Measuring Cup to measure out the perfect amount of detergent for your machine type and load size.

When selecting a water temperature, keep in mind that warm to hot water is best for washing whites, light colors, and heavily soiled cotton or linen items. Darks, colors, and synthetic items can be washed in warm or cold water. When in doubt, a cold temperature is always a safe bet. For color-safe whitening and brightening, add an extra capful of All-Purpose Bleach Alternative directly to the machine drum and select a hot wash cycle. When washing by hand in the Wash Tub Basin, let items soak for about 30 minutes before rinsing and drying.

Pro Tip: Protect everyday items with straps, zippers, or decorative buttons from snagging in the washing machine by placing them inside Mesh Bags. When completing a small laundry load and using Mesh Bags, we recommend skipping the dispenser and pouring Isle Signature Detergent directly over the bags in the drum for the best product distribution during the wash.

Step 3: Dry and Finish

Extend your sensorial “vacay” and bring the captivating feelings of the coast from washing machine to dryer by misting clothes with a few spritzes of Isle Fabric Fresh before tossing them in to dry. If you’re using our Wool Dryer Balls to speed up drying time and reduce static, simply mist the woolen balls directly. To extend the longevity of the Isle scent (and your garments, too!), select a lower heat or no-heat setting on the dryer. In between washes, reach for Isle Fabric Fresh to refresh fabrics and melt away odors. This versatile fabric spray can be used to freshen any cloth surface—from everyday clothes to bedding and upholstery!—and turn your space into your own personal isle.
