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, enzyme-based laundry detergents 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 being washed with a detergent for white clothes. Our laundry detergents are free from colorants, zeolites, phosphates or preservatives and made with ingredients that are biodegradable within hours. We produce them in a 100% climate compensating factory in Vadstena, Sweden.
Why You Need Different Laundry Detergents
Never trust people that use one detergent for all their clothes. 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:
- One for white- clothes and sheets
- One for colored garments
- One for garments made of wool and silk

Dark & Denim Laundry Detergent: For Black and Navy-Blue
A regular detergent will, over time, make your black and navy-blue clothes look dull. Many detergents contain a rather aggressive combination of enzymes that can and will dissolve the color pigments. Our Dark & Denim Laundry Detergent is an “anti-washed-out treatment” for dark colored clothes. The mix of enzymes separates dirt and soil from color pigments and removes the dirt, but not the color. It’s highly concentrated and scented with Oud & Wood. Clean and fresh garments already at 30ºC.
Use Dark & Denim Laundry Detergent for:
- Black and dark-blue jeans
- Black, navy-blue or dark-brown garments
- Not to be used on wool and silk
