Woolite Delicate Fabric Wash Review - Use It To Handwash And In The Washing Machine
Below are a series of Woolite delicate fabric wash reviews from readers of this site (as well as some discussion from me) about this variety of laundry detergent.
All varieties of Woolite detergent can be used for washing delicate fabrics, but this one is designed for "extra delicate care" and can be used either in the washing machine, on the gentle cycle, or for use when hand washing clothes.
Although this product calls itself "hypoallergenic" it has a light scent which may be bothersome to some, and there are reports of some allergic reactions.
On the other hand, this is also one of the most popular brands of laundry soaps designed for delicate washing, and also one of the easier varieties found in stores.
Here are some of those reviews:
I love Woolite. There is no two ways around it. Woolite is the only detergent that I trust to wash my clothes.
I use it to wash my hand washable undergarments in the sink. I also use it in my washing machine.
Woolite is amazing for cleaning clothes as it doesn’t stretch or fade clothes the way that other detergents do even in the regular washing machine.
Most of the clothes that I own were quite expensive and to me it seems foolish to wash your expensive clothes in anything other than the best as the detergent will more
than pay for itself in the cost savings associated with not having to replace clothing as frequently.
Woolite isn’t as good at removing tough stains the way that other detergents are that are harsh on clothes, but if you catch a stain early and apply an equal mixture of Woolite and water onto the stain and use a toothbrush to massage the stain and work it out then almost all stains are removed.
Thanks Brittany for your Woolite delicate fabric wash review.
In addition to washing your clothes with a mild detergent, such as Woolite, make sure you wash anything on the delicate cycle of your washing machine, in cool or warm water, that is not heavily soiled, so that there is less wear and tear on your clothes. This will also keep them looking good longer.
Finally, I've create a list of available delicate wash products which you might find helpful if you're looking to find a new cold water wash for fine washables, and would like to see lots of reviews in one place.
Since All Versions Of Brand Are Safe For Delicates Do We Really Need The Extra Delicate Care?
I have been trying out a bunch of delicate washes recently, and one on the top of everyone's list is always Woolite's version.
At least in my house that is what I grew up with, and frankly I didn't know until I was an adult that there were even other choices for washing your unmentionables.
The thing is, recently Woolite has expanded its detergent line, and now they have stuff you can wash all your clothes in, all the time. (Here's my review of Woolite Everyday which I tried on my clothes.)
I carefully read the instructions on the Everyday version, and it says it is safe for delicates, including for wool and silk, for example.
So, this begs the question -- what is the point of buying what they call "Extra Delicate Care" formula? It doesn't do anything special that the other version of detergent doesn't do, and it costs a LOT more for a small amount. They sell the bottle with only 8, yes 8 washes in it!
This brand is very expensive in general, and it just seems like this version is just a waste of money because of the other kinds of detergent also available from the same company.
Now, after going off on that rant I will say that you can hand wash delicates with this version, although I think you could with the Everyday version as well, so I'm not sure that is a huge benefit or not.
I'd love insight from even more people telling me if they've abandoned this version of the product for other varieties, or if you love a different delicate wash more instead. You can share your reviews and experiences here.
Woolite Delicate Wash Review - Makes My Clothes Last Longer And Look Better
Kris has provided her Woolite delicate wash review.
Lately I have noticed my lacy tank tops and undergarments have been pilling and fading. They also haven't been lasting as long.
I discussed this with my friend Margie and she could not believe that I put them in what she calls, "the regular wash!" I took her advice and purchased a bottle of Woolite which was relatively inexpensive.
Since I have been using Woolite I find that my delicate clothes are softer, brighter, and are not wearing out as quickly as they were before. It is not a hassle to use as I already separate my laundry loads and I adore the rich, creamy, and delicious smelling soap.
I also have had a raised red and itchy rash on my arms which started about three months ago. Since I started buying Woolite I noticed it was not as dry or irritated as it had been in the past.
To do a test I started washing all my laundry, not just my delicates, in Woolite. One month later and I no longer have a rash!
Woolite is not just gentle on clothing, it is gentle on skin as well.
Thanks Kris for your Woolite delicate wash review.
It sounds to me like you were suffering from some type of laundry detergent allergy, when you experienced that rash, so I'm glad you found a product that works well for you.
To keep your delicate clothing looking good longer it is definitely a good idea to use a mild laundry detergent, such as Woolite. Also, make sure you wash your clothing in the delicate cycle of your washing machine, and in cool water to help reduce fading and shrinking. Finally, do not dry your delicates in the dryer, but instead let them air dry.
