Eucalan No Rinse Delicate Wash Review
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Non-toxic, earth-friendly, and all-round gentle clothes detergent
Eucalan is nontoxic and free from harsh chemicals such as phosphate. Therefore, not only is it gentle on your clothing but also on your skin, which is good news for those who may suffer from skin sensitivity. Also, the detergent's container is biodegradable and completely recyclable.
Pro No rinse formula can help extend the lifespan of garments
You simply need to add some Euculan to water, in which you then allow your garment(s) to soak for a few minutes. And once adequately soaked, the garment should be lain out flat to dry, with no rinsing required. In this sense, use of Eucalan means less handling of your garments and thus less likelihood of wear and tear. This is particularly favorable in the case of knit garments which don't respond well to extensive handling.
Pro Excellent solution for woolen articles
Eucalan is enriched with lanolin, a greasy substance naturally found on sheep wool that acts as a form of waterproof. Detergents that contain lanolin help to soften the fibers of woolen fabrics and reduce static-ness, while at the same time strengthening them against everyday wear and tear.
Pro Available in miniature packets that are perfect for travel
Eucalan is available in 5 ml packets that cost $0.85 each and can be used for single-garment washes. The product can therefore be easily transported, even in carry-on luggage for short trips.
Pro Comes in a variety of scents
Eucalan is available in five different scents: jasmine, lavender, grapefruit, eucalyptus, and unscented. So whether you prefer your garments to be scented or not, this product can meet your needs.
Con Contains methylchloroisothiazolinone
Methylchloroisothiazolinone is a preservative found in Eucalan that affects about 5% of the population by causing an allergic rash. It's also a sensitizer, meaning that extensive exposure to the preservative may cause you to develop an allergy to it over time.
Con Not available for purchase in grocery stores
Eucalan is largely unavailable for purchase in grocery stores and therefore must be bought online or in yarn stores.
