Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample of the product for review purposes. The opinions are my own, based on my personal experience with the product.
I wish that I had discovered Eucalan when I was still cloth diapering because it would have been the perfect way to wash those delicate woolies. Eucalan is a family-run, Canadian based business that manufactures the entire product line in Ontario. What makes Eucalan such an exceptional product line is that this delicate wash is non-toxic and has no petro-chemicals, is phosphate-free and it is biodegradable making it better for our environment. Fibers are naturally conditioned with just a touch of lanolin which keeps my delicate items looking and feeling great…..especially my children’s wool leggings.
There are five Eucalan Delicate Wash formulas to choose from in natural scents including eucalyptus, lavender, grapefruit and jasmine along with an unscented option for those with allergies or who don’t want a scented product. Eucalan can be used in top loading or front loading washing machines or when hand washing your garments which is my personal preference.
I received the Eucalan Delicate Wash Gift Pack ($22) which features four 3.3 fl. oz bottles and is a great way to sample the different scents that are available. I have a lovely cashmere sweater that I normally hand wash so I decided to use the Eucalan lavender formula. I simply filled my basin with tepid/cool water and added a small amount of the product as directed. It foamed up surprisingly well considering how little of the product that I used and I squeezed the water into the sweater gently until it was saturated. The sweater soaked for 15 minutes when I then gently wrung the water out of it and laid it flat to air dry. I was quite shocked to learn that there is no rinsing required at all which is an excellent bonus in my opinion when using this product as it saves both time, effort and water. The end result was excellent as my cashmere sweater was softer than ever and it smelled wonderful with just a hint of lavender scent left behind.
I also have used Eucalan successfully to spot clean my children’s clothing and this eco-friendly alternative has replaced all of my dry cleaning for my sweaters, wool items and lingerie. I am very impressed with the results that I have experienced when using the Eucalan No Rinse Delicate Wash product line.
