Eco-Friendly Laundry Detergents

Let’s face it; a good bra that provides comfort and makes you feel pretty becomes almost an obsession and needs to be well taken care of. 

Using a detergent specifically designed for your delicates will give them a much longer life. Since tomorrow is Earth Day I thought I would share with you two of our favorite brands and their impact on our earth.


"Eucalan is a No Rinse Delicate Wash that is non-toxic, biodegradable, and free of bleach, phosphates, synthetic fragrance and dye.  Eucalan is pH neutral and is packaged in an easy to recycle, dye free hdpe plastic bottle.  Eucalan is scented with essential oils of eucalyptus, lavender, and grapefruit, and is also available in natural (unscented).  The lanolin acts as a natural conditioner, keeping fibres supple and reducing static."

Forever New

Forever New promises to "Launder with Kindness". Both the powder and liquid detergents for lingerie and swim are made with plant based, biodegradable cleansers. They are never formulated with parabens, phthalates, SLES & dyes, and are never tested on animals. One bottle of the liquid does 126 hand washes and 375 hand washes with the powder. Because of it's organic nature Forever New rinses completely clean, meaning it doesn't cling to the fibers of your delicates, giving them a longer life. Click here for the ingredient list.

Happy Earth Day!
