This one is for you, ladies! Well, okay, the men can listen in (unless they’re the laundry do-er in the house, then this is for them too!), but mainly I’m talking to my fellow ladies. (Is that an oxymoron – fellow ladies?) We all have those unmentionables. At least I hope all do! Haha! And if you’re like me, you do a grand job of tossing them in a laundry bag, throwing them in the washing machine with the rest of your laundry, pulling them out of the bag after they’re washed and hanging them to dry. I have a feeling I just failed the exam at Soak. Somehow I doubt only getting the “hanging it to dry” part right would pass me! But you know how it is – I have three kids and a hubby and it seems like the laundry just never ends! Right now I have two laundry baskets full – one folded, one not. (Oops! Hello wrinkles!) Plus there’s a load of towels in the dryer. So, washing those unmentionables any method other than the above seems like extra work on top of all the rest I’m already behind on!
However! Let me tell you about Soak. First off, it’s soap for all your unmentionables and any other delicate items you may have! Does it need to be hand washed? Soak it. Swim or workout clothes? Soak it. What about your child’s favorite crochet or knit stuffy? Soak it. Blinds? Pillows? What about your baby clothes that you want to wash with something gentle? They’re all #soakworthy!
Have you gotten that part yet? Now I want to read you the instructions – and you need to pay close attention! Use 1 tsp of Soak per 1 gallon of water. Soak items for 15 minutes. Gently squeeze. No need to rinse. Did you get that? Seriously? I’m in love! All I have to do is let the stuff soak? I can do that!!!
So I tried it. I took two of my bras and soaked them for the 15 minutes. It took me back to my days of living in Ukraine where I had no washing machine and so that’s exactly how I washed my clothes – I let them soak! It’s amazing what soaking can do! Needless to say, the water was not sparkly clean when the soaking time was up. I swished them around, squeezed a bit of the water out, breathed deeply to enjoy the lovely scent (Celebration) and hung them up to dry. It was easy! Like so easy that a Mom with three kids and lots of laundry can handle it! The whole “rinsing not necessary” is really appealing!
I also love the fact that you only need 1 teaspoon of the stuff! That means the 375 mL bottle will last for 75 washes! So sure, when you see that the bottle is worth $32, it might seem expensive to some of us. But then when you sit down and do the math and realize that it’s only $0.43 per wash! That’s pretty decent for a soap that’s suitable for all types of delicates! Oh, and did I mention that it works in HE washing machines as well? And that it doesn’t need to be rinsed out?! That tells me it must be very gentle!
If you need some extra guidance, check out their Soak School! They have all sorts of tips on how to clean different items, which is great if you’re just not sure! I also like the fact that their products don’t have harsh chemicals or overwhelming fragrances. And their bottles, caps and labels are all recyclable. It’s nice to see companies that are focussed on making sure their products are eco-friendly! You know what my favoritest part about this company is? They’re Canadian! Straight from Mississauga, ON! Love!
So folks, Soak is the place to check out! Follow them on Facebook to keep up with all the latest news. Pinterest is also a great place to find inspiration! You can also find them on Twitter, Instagram, and Ravelry! I can’t wait to get myself a big bottle of Soak that’ll last me for a long time! I have enough items that are #soakworthy that I’ll be keeping the bottle handy! And you need to check out their shop. Choices, choices! Would you like the sample pack Minisoak’s? Or perhaps a travel size? Or are you ready for the full size? Not sure what scent you’ll like best? Try the Minisoak Travel Pack Assorted. Then you can try every scent! These would be SO handy to have when travelling – and since it’s not necessary to rinse they would be great for backpacking trips! Each little package is 1 tsp of soap, so no open bottles to worry about spilling! You know what else is in their shop that’s also really fun? Remember how I mentioned that Soak is great for knit and crochet items? They sell Soakboxes! There are a few options – you can get a couple balls of yarn and a bottle of Soak. Or you can get a baby hat and leggings plus a bottle of Soak. There’s a couple other options too, and quite a color variety too! Wouldn’t these make great gifts for your crafty friends? The last product they offer is called Flatter. It’s a starch-free smoothing spray for ironing!
Yippee! Three winners are going to receive their choice of scent in a 3 oz (90mL) travel bottle! It’ll last for 18 or more washes. Just do me a favor, don’t blame me if you find yourself hooked!
