As of June 1st, Toronto-based Soak Wash is available for purchase as the sole care product for delicates in all (122) Sears locations throughout Canada, offering core scents Flora, Aquae, Citrus and Scentless in 14oz and 4oz bottles.

The gift-with-purchase program will run from June 8th to the 14th, while supplies last.
As if that weren’t enough, Soak is now among the high-end room amenities featured at Toronto hot-spot The Drake Hotel, and is forming collaborations with shapewear brand Sassybax for online retailers Freshpair.com and Herroom.com. Fully produced and manufactured in Canada, Soak is proud to be an all-Canadian company pushing through the recession with continued expansion. In addition to Sears, the brand can be found throughout Canada in numerous boutiques including Toronto’s premier bra fitting boutique, Secrets From Your Sisters, as well as major chains Swimwear Etc. and Stitch It. In addition to Canada, Soak is carried in the United States, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Germany and New Zealand, with recent launches in the UK, Japan and Australia. Retailing in nine countries in a total of 800+ stores world wide, Soak Wash is truly a Canadian success story.
