The Laundress 16 oz. Delicate Wash is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality concentrate I've tried other less expensive laundry soaps from large department stores only to find they are watered down and I have to use more of the product. This is a nicely concentrated formula. It seems to get clothes clean and I don't see obvious fading of color. It leaves a light scent. I like that it has enzymes to break down common food stains.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I usually go for unscented detergents, but... After having success with other products by the Laundress I wanted to try the delicate wash. I am a big fan of it! The scent is light and not overpowering. The formula works really well, and a little goes a long way.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesn't live up to the hype or price I used this in my HE washer. I used the hand wash cycle. I had to wash my delicates twice. When it was time to wash again, I had to do it twice and then use my regular detergent. I didn't feel it got my delicates and sweaters clean. I'll save for hand washing, but I am far from impressed. If I lived closer to the container store I would have returned it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicate Wash This is great for delicate clothing. Works well & removes stains.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Expensive- but worth it for special items These are expensive but if you have hard water, an absolute must for special lingerie items. Hard water usually means detergents don't soap up, this product is super soapy and the fragrance is clean and light. You don't use very much even with hard water. I gave this 4 stars and not 5 due to the cost.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice product this was very nice, I enjoyed the smell and my clothes came out of the first wash looking clean and undamaged, which is what you hope for in a delicates detergent. I especially liked the way my bras came out, they looked clean and not the slightly dingy color they ended up with my old detergent. I used slightly less than suggested on the bottle and still got good results. The only real complaint I have is that the measuring was annoying. They give you a certain amount of capfuls to use, but the cap is a squeeze cap that means it makes it messy to try and measure it out. I resorted to getting out a measuring cup, and ended up with quite a bit stuck tothe sides. I ended up feeling like I was wasting a lot. A small quibble, but since it is a little pricy one I felt was important.

Community Q&A

How is this different from the wool and cashmere detergent?

Can I use this delicate detergent for wool and cashmere too?
Asked by: Ellek
The Laundress Delicate Wash is not recommended for washing wool and cashmere. Our Wool & Cashmere Shampoo from the Laundress is a pH-neutral fabric wash that's gentle on the natural fibers of wool, cashmere, merino, mohair, and more. It thoroughly cleans, removing odor, dirt, and oil, while preserving your sweaters’ soft and supple hand and natural lanolin for decades to come. Plus, the cedar-based fragrance keeps pests away.
