Frequently Asked questions
Can it also be used to clean wool or technical fabrics?
Yes. This Wilderness Wash is a non-detergent formula that won't harm wool or degrade water-resistant technical fabrics / DWR finishes. Just make sure to rinse well after washing.
Can the soap be used as detergent in a washing machine?
Yes and no. It's designed for washing clothes in a sink (one or two leaves in 1–2 gallons of water), so you would need 10–25 leaves for a load in a washing machine that uses 20–50 gallons of water. However, landromat washing machines have plenty of soap residue, so 5–6 leaves may work for a small load.
Can this soap be used in lakes and streams?
No. While this wash is biodegradable and able to break down through biological action and UV, it will harm aquatic life if used directly in streams, ponds, and lakes. Practice Leave No Trace and dispose of waste water 200ft / 70m from any water source.
