Laundry Resolutions for 2013

The new year is almost here, and with it, the promise of a fresh start! This year, resolve to have clean clothes and a cleaner planet by incorporating a multi-tasking product into your regular Laundry routine – Eucalan! Here are a few resolutions to try out for 2013:

WraptureBottlesResolution #1: Skip the Dry Cleaner

Dry cleaning involves a lot of chemicals that are bad for the environment, but items that are labeled "dry clean only" can be laundered quite easily & safely at home for a fraction of the cost. The Eucalan YouTube channel has plenty of easy tutorials to get you started, or you can use our quick tips here on the Eucalan website

Resolution #2: Get a jump on Spring Cleaning

Rugs, carpets, and upholstery can be spot-cleaned easily using just a little bit of Eucalan diluted in some water (try mixing it in a spray bottle for easy application). Looking to do a deep clean with a carpet cleaning machine? You can use Eucalan instead of a traditional carpet cleaner!

Eucalan's no-rinse formula also comes in handy when it's time to freshen up curtains and drapes, as demonstrated in this video tutorial

When springtime rolls around, you'll be happy you got an early start at the beginning of the year!


Resolution #3: Conserve Water & Energy

Eucalan's no-rinse formula means that you won't have to use a lot of water when hand-washing your delicate items and woolens. However, there are lots of other ways to save water in the laundry room:

  • Spot cleaning items that are otherwise clean, rather than tossing them in the washing machine.
  • Treating stains ASAP, allowing them to sit for ten minutes prior to washing. 
  • Running your washer and dryer at night, preferably with back-to-back loads to take advantage of an already-hot dryer.

Resolution #4: Skip the Fabric Softener

Adding a few drops of Eucalan instead of a conditioner/softener to the rinse water will avoid the build-up that occurs with other fabric softeners. This build-up is also damaging to fibres, so switching to Eucalan will help your clothes last longer! As an added bonus, the lanolin in Eucalan will also help prevent static cling.  


With a multi-tasker like Eucalan in the Laundry room, you'll save time and money, all while being eco-friendly. From all of us at Eucalan, have a happy and healthy 2013!
