Even though I don’t have a whole lot of clothes that are considered delicate, I was still excited to try out the Eucalan No Rinse Delicate Wash through the Viewpoints trial program.  I received 2 samples, Eucalyptus and Lavender of the No Rinse Delicate Wash.  Eucalan also makes a grapefruit and natural version as well.  Eucalan prides itself n being a more natural cleaning product cutting out all the gunk that resides in regular laundry products.  The No Rinse Delicate Wash is non-toxic, bio-degradable, and phosphate free.  The wash is also eco-friendly since it saves on washing..  Eucalan is obviously great for your delicates but they also suggest using it with baby clothes, athletic apparel and while traveling.  The packagng comes with directions for both hand washing and machine washing.  The machine wash directions would be useful for larger loads like say baby clothing.From the company “it’s more than a wash, it’s a beauty treatment for natural fabrics and an aromatherapy for the user.” I wasn’t quite sure how much my little sample would take care of so for my use, I chose to freshen up a shirt that had taken up residence in our bathroom for a while.  After filing the sink with warm water and the Eucalan, I washed up my shirt, squeezed out the water and waited for it to dry.   It took just about over night for the shirt to dry and it was nice and soft afterward.  The scent of eucalyptus was nice and soothing and didn’t really linger too long.  Although I don’t have a lot of delicates and I don‘t really have room to line dry a lot, I would recommend this to those who want a more natural wash and want to treat their delicates well.

  I received two samples of the Eucalan No Rinse Delicate Wash. One scented lavender, and the other in grapefruit. I'm not particularly fond of the scent of lavender, so for the purpose of this review I used the grapefruit sample. I chose one of my favorite tops that I wore recently as the test subject. As the directions stated, I filled the laundry room sink with lukewarm water, added the grapefruit scented Eucalan packet, and worked the suds through my top. I then allowed the article of clothing to soak for a few minutes and squeezed out the excess water.

  While I do love the fact that this product is advertised as eco-friendly and is supposed to save on water, that's really the only thing that impressed me about it. The initial grapefruit scent was wonderful when I added it to the water. However the scent did not last. When my top was finished I was left without that great "freshly cleaned laundry" scent; the thing I look forward to most when my clothes are finished washing. I also didn't rinse my top, **only** because of the fact that I'm product testing and that's what the directions say to do. But to be honest, I'm a bit skeptical about not rinsing my clothing after washing them in something that produced suds (however minimal). I don't really feel as though my top was clean enough. I still prefer my current laundry detergent and fabric softener to Eucalan No Rinse Delicate Wash. If I were on the go and needed a quick solution for a laundry emergency, it might come in handy. But would I buy this product otherwise? Probably not.

Who Goes To A Fiber Festival To Shop For Detergent?

By 

from Podunk, NY

Comments about Eucalan No Rinse Delicate Wash:

I am a fabric artist. I spin wool and create clothing with it. Along with wool, silk, and other natural fibers comes the problem of BUGS. It is important to be able to wash the wool, but then it is important to keep bugs away too. That is where Eucalan No Rinse Delicate Wash comes in. Although some people have recommended it to me to wash underwear and such, I find that it is best for woolens and natural fibers that need protection from unwanted diners. It comes in four scents- natural, grapefruit, lavender, and eucalyptus. If you are sensitive to lanolin you need to be aware that this wash contains it.

Performance
Recommended for sweaters, lingerie, hosiery, comforters, down jackets, bathing suits and baby items, this detergent works best for me when I am washing wool fibers, yarn, and/or items made with these fibers. It works well on cashmere too. The lanolin in this detergent helps to soften the fibers and the scent (I use eucalyptus and lavender) helps to repel moths and other creatures from wanting to munch on the items when stored away for winter. I didn't find it to be quite as nice as other detergents designed for gentle washes when using it on hosiery or personal items. But for wool, silk, and other natural fibers it is pretty nice. It does help reduce static, and the scent lasts okay so it is nice to use before putting away items for storage.

Scent
I use the eucalyptus and lavender scents as recommended to me at the fiber festivals by others who want to preserve woolens etc. The scent is natural and very nice. I tend to put a bit more essential oil in my washes, because I want a bit more scent to my woolens.

rather my regular detergent

By 

from Duson, LA

Comments about Eucalan No Rinse Delicate Wash:

so i recieved samples o these, while the smells were great i really didnt get the whole no rinse thing being that with my washer you have to rinse so it really didnt save me anytime. it washed great and really i do love the smell but just the no rinsr purpose isnt enough to make me spend more money on this product over my regular brand. i also feel like if my clothes dont go trough the rinse they are still a little grungy. over all i give this product a C. for effort, but other then smell and this no rinse situation, i think its just like other brands.

Get ready for a new way to launder delicate items!

By 

from small town, OH

Comments about Eucalan No Rinse Delicate Wash:

I received two samples of Eucalan No Rinse Delicate Wash.  One was scented with lavender and the other contained a grapefruit scent.  I used the lavender scented Eucalan to hand launder a washable silk top.  All  had to do was fill a basin with about a gallon of tepid water, add the Eucalan, then immerse my top and gently squeeze to thoroughly soak the top.  You then allow your delicates to soak at least 15 minutes or longer if you forget, as I did.  Now this is the part I was unsure of, not wanting to squeeze my top, I placed it in my washing machine and spun on the delicate cycle just until it was not dripping.  I then laid the top flat (no rinsing required)  until it dried.  My silk top came out clean and smelling wonderfully of lavender.  Instructions on the package indicate you can use the Eucalan No Rinse Delicate Wash in your washing machine--which is the way I will go next time.  I really liked the lavender scent and will look for a larger bottle; however, I am not sure about the grapefruit scent.  I love grapefruit and grapefruit juice, but I am not sure I want my clothing to smell of grapefruit.  I definitely will stay with the lavender scent.  The Eucalan also comes in a natural scent (unsure what that would be) and a eucalyptus scent for those of you who are not allergic to eucalyptus as I am.  I am going to use the grapefruit scented Eucalan on some lace placemats as the scent would be appropriate for them.  A little of the wash goes a long way and no rinsing is necessart.  How green is that?  With Eucalan No Rinse Delicate Wash you save money by not taking some items to be dry cleaned and you are not using water to rinse.  Eucalan is environmentally friendly.  Good product.

eucalan no rinse cleans your delicates gently, but gets the job

By 

from Spring Hill, FL

Comments about Eucalan No Rinse Delicate Wash:

eucalan no rinse is a great product! i was worried eucalan would not get my delicate clothes clean or be gentle enough. i was wrong. im a mom on the go and dont have time to waste. eucalan no rinse is easy to use, but gets the job done. i have used other products in the past and the can be to harsh for the fabrics or leaves the delicates dirty. not the case with eucalan no rinse, and it has a great smell. i cant wait to tell my coworkers, and of course i will continue to use.

Easy and Effective!!

By 

from Michigan City, IN

Comments about Eucalan No Rinse Delicate Wash:

I received my two samples of Eucalan No Rinse Delicate Wash in eucalyptus and lavender fragrances and was pleasantly surprised to find out how nice they were to work with. I loved how easy they were to use. Each one washed more than I thought they would. I was able to was several pieces with each sample. I wasn't real sure about the whole not rinsing the soap out part. Something just goes against the grain with that. But when I was finished with the whole process the clothes were so clean and fresh, it was wonderful. I was really surprised that they didn't seem to have any residue or soapiness to them. Each article came out really nicely, no fading of color, things didn't get damaged, no stretching, and it may have been my imagination, but they seemed to dry faster. The two fragrances that I had were nice too. Both were pleasant and not by any means overpowering or super soapy smelly at all!! I can't handle heavy chemical & soapy smells. But my favorite was the lavender. Very pleasant and my clothes smelled nice too!! Highly recommend this product.

Lovely grapefruit scent!

By 

from Portland, OR

Comments about Eucalan No Rinse Delicate Wash:

I recieved two Eucalan No Rinse Delicate Wash samples: Grapefruit and Lavender. If you are a lavender fan, you may like the lavender, but I'm not a big fan of something that smells like my old aunties' underwear drawer sachets! The brochure says it also comes in eucalyptus and natural.

 

According to the directions, I used the sample in the softener dispenser of my front loading washer, cold setting, delicate cycle. It worked just as well as Woolite, but the grapefruit scent brought a whole new dimension to my delicate laundry.

 

I would suggest grapefruit or natural, if you are doing men's and women's laundry. I don't think MY husband would want any of his clothing smelling of lavender. And...eucalyptus? Wouldn't your clothing smell like cough drops?

 

This is a great new product in the GRAPEFRUIT scent; it would be my first choice for a delicate wash!

Easy, Green and it works well

By 

from Westland, MI

Comments about Eucalan No Rinse Delicate Wash:

I received a free sample of **Eucalan No Rinse Delicate Wash, **not having any personal laundry to do, I remembered a crewel embroidered pillow cover I made as a teen.  I was always proud of this pillow, but had been afraid to wash it, so its been packed away for many, many years. The yarn embroidery was complex and in vivid colors, and on a linen backing.  I was afraid the old yarn and fabric would not survive, that it would flatten, shrink, fade or bleed. 

Following instructions on the Eucalan site, I tested for color fastness, and then filled my sink with tepid water and the Eucalan.  I was quite hesitant about not having to rinse, but after reading about the process and all the good reviews online,  I was determined to use it as directed.  I carefully squeezed the pillow cover to get the water and Eucalan into the fibers. 

I let my pillow cover soak overnight.  The next morning I gently squeezed out the excess water.  Rolled it in a towel and then smoothed it onto, and left it on a drying rack to complete drying.  I was very pleased with the results 24 hours later.  It looked good and smelled good. The pillow, cover, with a new insert, is now once again on on display for me to enjoy. It took some extra time, but the result was well worth it for such a special item.
