The formulation of the Whites Detergent is similar to The Signature Detergent but with a higher concentration of whitening enzymes. This formulation will keep the integrity of your whites so that they do not yellow prematurely.
FOR BEST RESULTS: Always pre-treat soiled areas with The Laundress Stain Solution or Wash & Stain Bar. We recommend adding The Laundress All-Purpose Bleach Alternative for an extra whitening boost to your laundry. We recommend washing with hot water for cotton and linen.
Made in the United States
This detergent is enzyme-based and contains no petroleum-based soaps, which helps protect and maintain the integrity of natural clothing fibers better than mass-market laundry detergents. It is also all-natural, biodegradable and non-toxic. The formula is highly-concentrated and appropriate for both hand and machine washing.
The following natural, stain-fighting enzymes can be found in this detergent:
- Protease: Targets and breaks down large and complex protein molecules into peptides and amino acids which are easily removed by surfactants.
- Amylase: Targets and breaks down starch-based stains significantly increasing the efficacy of the detergent. They are best at removing starchy stains with low protein content, such as chocolate and spray starch.
- Lipase: Targets and breaks down fatty soils originating from animal fat and vegetable oils. Lipase removes fatty stains that strongly adhere to fabrics.
