The short version
There is no laundry detergent that goes with everything since all fabrics are made of different textile fibers. As an absolute minimum, you should always have three kinds of laundry detergent at hand: one for colored garments, one for your whites, and one for wool and silk. Regular laundry detergents with harsh enzymes will destroy delicate fabrics. White clothes must be washed with a detergent specially made for white fabrics, otherwise they will turn grey. And colored garments will lose color if they are washed with a detergent for white clothes. Our laundry detergents are free from colorants, zeolites, phosphates, and preservatives.
Why you need different laundry detergents
There is no such thing as a universal laundry detergent. Fabrics are manufactured with different textile fibers and have been prepared differently in the manufacturing process.
Fabrics made of animal protein, like wool and silk, will degrade quickly by a regular, enzyme-based detergent. Colored clothes should never be washed with a detergent for white since it will make them lose their colors. Functional wear and workout clothes will last longer if you wash them with a detergent that targets bad smells. Sound tricky? It doesn’t have to be. You will get far with three laundry piles:
- One for white clothes and sheets
- One for colored textiles
- One for garments made of wool and silk
