Eco-Friendly Laundry by Eucalan Delicate Washes

I was recently sent some samples of Eucalan Delicate Washes and was blown away by the quality! Eucalan Delicate Wash is non-toxic, biodegradable, free of optical brighteners, phosphates, synthetic fragrance and dye. The bonus…each one smells absolutely amazing. Natural scents like grapefruit, lavender and eucalyptus. There is also an unscented one for those who are sensitive to smell. These washes are perfect for washing delicates, workout wear, woolens, bathing suits and even make-up brushes! I think I’ve ruined more bathing suits over the years by including them in my regular wash.  The washes are ‘no rinse’, so after the delicate items have soaked in the wash, they  may be gently wrung out and dried flat.

Not only are these washes earth-friend and biodegradable, but less water is needed during use. As a resident of drought prone Southern California, that is great news! The Eucalan website also provides tips on how to further reduce water and energy usage.

My very favorite is the eucalyptus! It is bright, herbally scented and makes me feel awake! Perhaps if I wash all my running wear in it, I’ll move faster 🙂

Eucalan washes are available on Amazon, and are on Prime so you can get them right away in most locations.

The non-scented wash was great for washing my make-up brushes. The old-makeup came out quickly under warm water and a little wash, and then I squeezed out excess water and laid out to dry.
