    Comments about The Laundress Delicate Wash, Lady, 16 fl oz:

    All the Laundress detergents I have tried clean VERY WELL--even removing stains. I have tried the following formulas Signature, Whites Baby and Delicate. As I stated they all clean well, but there is a problem--a big problem--the sickeningly artificial sweet fragrance of these products make me ill smelling them. It takes DAYS and many rinses to get rid of the perfume odor--not just from the clothes but my laundry closet and machine!
    Essential oils of a natural origin are one thing, this additional "fragrance" they add is way over the top.
    Also, the Signature, Baby, and Whites formula leave a soap scum build up in my new washer after just ONE WASH. I have not yet used the delicate in my new machine so I can't say if that leaves a build up as I used a basin to launder the delicates in.
    I had purchased the Delicate formula a few years back from a clothing store, the scent was very, very mild back then (just a light clean soap smell), that is what prompted me to revisit this product. Evidently, they changed from essential oils to essential oils and "FRAGRANCE" meaning perfume. I will no long purchase this product. The quest for natural detergents continues.
    BTW, my skin had itches from the product too since they changed the smell.
    Note--I have not tried the sports formula, probably won't either. Yes, these detergents are expensive, but if they did not have this perfume and soap scum issue, it would pay full price without complaining.

    Comments about The Laundress Delicate Wash, Lady, 16 fl oz:

    Works well--gets clothes clean but the artificial perfume is too strong. The smell is sickening.
    I don't know why this company does not make even ONE fragrance free formula. It's really too bad because this stuff removes stains and leaves clothes looking good. But I can't stomach the smell. I have chemical sensitivities, so this detergent make me feel literally sick. My friends who are not sensitive like me where also turned off by the heavy perfume smell and did not want the detergent.
    If you are chemical sensitive or hate artificial perfume smell, I would not purchase this or any other The Laundress products. If you like the product but want a fragrance free version, call the company--let them know.
    If it were not for the perfume in the product, I would be happy with this product as it DOES clean well.

      Comments about The Laundress Delicate Wash, Lady, 16 fl oz:

      This product is expensive, but worth the money. A little goes a long way, and I use it to launder delicate items that I might otherwise send to the cleaners, so it ends up saving me money in the long run. I also love the smell. It is a clean fresh scent, that fades over time. I'm on my 4th bottle (in two years). Highly recommended.

        Comments about The Laundress Delicate Wash, Lady, 16 fl oz:

        Great product for all delicate fabrics. I use it on all my delicate items and it works so well that I use the detergent instead of sending my dirty delicate items to the cleaner. I love the scent and the detergent cleans my delicate items thoroughly without any staining, etc. My only problems are the cost of the detergent - costly, although you don't need much for a load of laundry - and the absence of a cap or other self-contained measurement tool in the bottle. As a result, I have to measure out the amount of detergent I need in a separate measuring cup which is a pain.

          This is a delicate wash, but it washes delicates really well and is not overpowering. It's also good for washing basics in a hurry.

              I love using this on all my bras, lingerie, silk garments, spanx and hose. The scent is lovely and not too strong. Considering what I spend on these articles, it's easy to spend to money on a quality detergent. I've had the large size for over a year, and I still have about half left - highly efficient!
