washing denim with woolite black? - Page 2

post #16 of 20
do we need to rinse them after we soak them in detergent? if no, does it not smell like detergent afterwards?

how long do we need to soak them? rinse them?

Interesting question... personally I'd prefer using Bronners but it's harder for me to find... so I usually use WOOLITE® Dark Laundry Fabric Wash. I'd venture to say that, since you're probably only washing once every 6 or 8 months anyway, you wouldn't be able to tell which one keeps them darker and which one keeps the fabric in better shape... I'd say just use either one, and wash as infrequently as possible, when you do wash, wash gently by hand and use as little soap as possible and put the jeans in cold water for as short a time as possible...

Again, I'm no expert, and there are other threads and websites addressing the washing process, so please consult those as I don't want to lead you down the wrong path and I especially wouldn't want you to ruin a favorite pair of jeans on account of me!

I would say that Bronner's is better because it is a soap whereas Woolite Dark is a detergent. I know it's a hair-splitting distinction but there is a chemical difference: a true castille soap contains glycerol and lipids derived from natural sources and detergents contain harsher aromatic molecules.

I would take Bronner's over Woolite Dark anyday.

I'm not familiar with Bronner's. Which product would be best for denim and other dark items?

Dr Bronem and thunder soap are good too
