Soak Wash for your Delicates. You will love it!

Soak Wash for intimates
Soak products are manufactured in Toronto – they include our well-loved Soak Wash as well as a range of secondary products that support the company’s philosophy of helping our customers care for the washables they cherish the most.
Soak is available in an assortment of fresh fragrances plus Scentless (for your sensitive side).  Watch for new products launching throughout the year!

Here’s all the FAQs and information you need about hand washing, ingredients, fragrances and other Soak stuff.
Soak Wash for lingerieCan I use Soak in the machine?
Yes.  Soak is ideal for either hand or machine washing- including High Efficiency (HE) machines.  Use the delicate cycle and measure Soak based on your machine’s instructions.  You can either use or skip the rinse cycle, depending on what you are washing. Measure Soak by individual machine guidelines.
I forgot about my item and left it in Soak overnight. Is it okay?
Of course. There’s nothing in it that will harm your clothes. Fifteen minutes is all you really need, though – leaving things in longer won’t make them any cleaner. Want a quick way to remember? Leave the light on in the bathroom when you’re Soaking in the sink so you don’t forget.
Can Soak help protect my wool against moths?
No laundry wash will keep moths away from your knits (not Soak, and not our competitors). Because moths are attracted to the oils from your skin that are trapped in the fibers, your best bet is to wash them regularly and store them clean, especially before you put them away for the season. We don’t recommend using moth balls. Not only do they smell awful, they contain toxic, harsh chemicals that aren’t good for anyone.
Scentless vs. Scented
Soak comes in a variety of fragrances, as well as scentless. There is no difference between the two formulas, other than the fragrance that is added to our scented products. Even though our scentless Soak is called “for your sensitive side”, all of our products are mild, plant based formulas for sensitive customers. Scentless is for the customer that does not want any scent at all.
Are the fragrances strong?
We have formulas by which we develop fragrances to ensure that all of our scents are Soakworthy. They are fresh, light and don’t leave any overbearing or heavy scent lingering in your garments. They are designed to just make the washing experience more pleasurable. Each fragrance leaves a hint of freshness on the item after it has been washed. When customers were asked to compare Soak to other fine fabric rinses, they found the scent more delicate, fresher and milder than the current market leaders. For more information on fragrances, watch the video called Soak Fragrances on YouTube.
