Okay so your measurements put you around a 26F. Depending on your comfort level, you may want to try a 28E since you're more used to 34s (which is sooo much bigger than you need!). 28E is also much easier to find. You have plenty of resources online especially (eBay, Amazon, and Figleaves are all good starts and you can check the resource list on the side here), but Nordstrom will have your size as well-though probably only online.

For starters to see how you feel about your size, I suggest ordering something from Nordstrom because they have free shipping & free returns. Even if you don't keep anything, it's a good way to figure out what size is good for you.

As far as 26's go, unfortunately there aren't a lot of options. But! If you look into Tutti Rouge from other seasons (prior to A/W '14), you'll find that their 28s are actually really 26s.

I also recommend you check out listings on Bratabase which is super helpful for figuring out bra stuff, though it can be a bit overwhelming at first.

To note about bras: You want your bra to always fit you on the loosest hook when you first buy it. The reason for that is as time goes by, your band will stretch out. Buying it on the loosest hook will allow you to keep it the longest since you can tighten it as you wear it out. You'll also want to be hand washing your bras to extend the life of them. For that I use Forever New. This giant thing of it will last you literally years.

Hope that helps!

EDIT: People, it seems like some of you are not actually reading my post beyond my first sentence and then admonishing me for suggesting a 26F. If you read beyond that, you'll see that I also suggested a 28E for comfort level and the fact that it's easier to find.

  • This Seether album is titled "Isolate and Medicate", which is what more than a few people use the answer to the first riddle to do. The album is necessary to my magical music experience because having music playing in the background is an essential study method! Studies have shown (I believe) that listening to music in the background while studying actually forces you to concentrate more effectively on the material being studied and you do better. :)

  • I can use the answer to the second riddle to both dominate the Quidditch field AND to clean the floor of my room, and this Tide laundry detergent will clean both my Quidditch AND school robes good as new and make them smell great too!

  • These hanging corner shelves are an excellent way to organize and display my school uniform witches' hat and my roaring lion hat that Luna Lovegood occasionally borrows from my when cheering at the Quidditch teams!

  • This amazing chair is a very tasteful and comfortable place from which to read/study from all of my school books!

  • This Pirate's Booty tasty snack can be hidden/stored in the answer to the fifth riddle, and it would make an awesome study snack!

  • This costume, which includes the answer to the bonus riddle, would be helpful for hiding my identity from Mr. Filch while being out of bed in the middle of the night and up to no good, although a tad small for me!

Microfiber list looks pretty good! You may want to add a few of these for other various purposes so you don't use your nicer more expensive towels for extra dirty stuff like around your exhaust or wheels/wheel wells/in your engine bay. Also I'm pretty sure you can get a bucket with a screw on lid at home depot for pretty cheap, but all in all it's not a bad kit because it comes with the soap and grit guard and wash mitt. As for the bucket for your supplies, again I'm sure there's something cheaper at home depot.

Chemical guys makes some pretty good stuff and some pretty bad stuff. They're more of a marketing brand than a good detailing product brand. I'd replace the glass cleaner with Stoner Invisible Glass...can also be found at walmart or autozone usually.

Their degreaser is good and can be diluted so it should last a while. Never used their wheel cleaner, but it looks okay. The microfiber detergent isn't necessary really, just get something like this for a lot cheaper. Just make sure you wash your microfibers separately and DO NOT use fabric softener on them. Be aware that some detergents have fabric softener mixed in. Do not use those detergents. The tire brush is good, but you may also want one like this to get into the inside of your wheels more.

u/_PM_ME_YOUR_HOPES_ · 4 pointsr/onebagging

I'm currently coming home from a one week trip where we did a combination of hiking and staying in hotels / airbnbs. I had purchased a scrubba bag and was anxious to use it. I'm personally on board with the onebag philosophy of doing laundry every night or two so as being able to pack light.

My take on the scrubba bag is it's pretty neat. The nodules do help a little in helping break dirt off of clothes. The air bleed is nice for getting all of the air out of the bag when sealing it up, and the clear window is helpful in seeing the water get cloudy from all the dirt coming out of the clothes. While not using the scrubba I just rolled up a small bottle of non rinse detergent and a clothes line for drying,making it a somewhat simpler process since im doing it every night.

My conclusion is that for a situation like mine, where we hiked through water falls and streams, I would have rather of just brought a dry bag / day pack to use for laundry AND to use as a waterproof day pack. Also I brought a dedicated laundry clothes line when 15 ft of Paracord would have sufficed just fine and been able to use in other situations also. The laundry soap was nice because it was "non-rinseable" but I still rinsed my clothes abyways, so using the same Dr bronners I use for my hair would have worked too.

Here are some links to the products I used:

Scrubba Wash Bag - Portable Laundry System For Camping, Hiking, Backpacking and Travel

Soakwash Liquid Laundry Wash, 12-Ounce, Scentless

The ORIGINAL Sun & Sheets Superior Quality Compact Adjustable Travel Bungee Clothesline

What I may use instead in the future:

Earth Pak- Waterproof Dry Bag with Front Zippered Pocket Keeps Gear Dry for Kayaking, Beach, Rafting, Boating, Hiking, Camping and Fishing with Waterproof Phone Case

Sea To Summit Lite Line Clothesline

Paracord Planet Mil-Spec Commercial Grade 550lb Type III Nylon Paracord 25 feet Turquoise

Dr. Bronner's Magic Soaps Fair Trade and Organic Castile Liquid Soap, Peppermint, 2 Fluid Ounce

Also, as a side note, I found these great little bottles for storing soaps and lotions a lot more efficiently than "travel sized" bottles:

First, see a dermatologist. Ask them about allergy testing (which is often administered by an immunologist). You could try removing dairy, wheat, and even soy from your child's diet on your own and monitor the effect. The dermatologist might administer antibiotics - I've been on erythromycin, sulfamethoxazole-tmp, clindamycin and also minocycline and doxycycline (both which provide not only anti-bacterial but also anti-imflammatory properties) so you may want to ask about those. They may also prescribe some variety of cortisone - it's a pretty standard treatment for atopic dermatitis. If you also want something prescribed that's steroid free, be sure to ask them about:

I use atopiclair on my face and it's highly effective.

For over the counter products, try cetaphil soap (restoraderm line is also great), and for creams:

eucerin soothing repair cream:

eucerine dry therapy calming cream:

Also, be sure to wash clothes and sheets with a mild detergent like:

Now, for a personal aside: I just want to tell you how much I empathize with you and your child. I'm 26, and I've dealt with eczema all my life. My condition is compounded by chronic folliculitis mixed in with my eczema, which leads to more severe infections - boils so severe that it hurts to walk, it hurts to sit, it hurts to sleep. My skin has been red and my body riddled with pain. I've spent hours sobbing, cursing god, and desperately searching for a solution. I've found no easy answers, no quick fix. But, the universe gave me a gift - two of the most wonderful people I know: my parents. They guided me through the hardest times in my life, provided me with strength when I felt only weakness, and offered unconditional love even when I lashed out in anger and despair. I just wanted to express the profoundly positive impact parents can have on someone with a devastating condition like atopic dermatitis.

Things do get better - my condition has improved as I've aged. And, there are many effective treatment options on the horizon (if your child's condition doesn't fade away completely as he gets older, which it commonly does). Most notably:

u/junjunjenn · 6 pointsr/menwritingwomen

Ok so I’ll be honest I bring mine into the shower (not wearing them) and clean then just with water.
But from the time I was really into bras the best way to clean them is by hand in the sink or a bucket with a gentle soap made for that purpose and then hang or lay flat to dry. There’s several on amazon here is one

Forever New 32oz Granular Fabric Care Wash Natural Laundry Detergent

u/abhikavi · 2 pointsr/asktransgender

Cis girl here-- invest in some gentle detergent (like this) and some mesh bags. Wash bras in bags on delicate cycle in cold water.

I wash my fancy-pants underwire bras every 3-7 wears, but I mostly wear them in an air-conditioned office. The more you sweat, the more you need to wash them.

I have some fancier sports bras with hooks and padding and stuff that I wash after every wear, but still in the delicate cycle with other bras/lingerie/etc.

I have some really cheap sports bras that I just throw in with my regular wash. Without padding, they don't get bent out of shape or anything. However, these don't have quite the same level of support as others, so I don't use them for serious hard labor stuff (e.g. tomorrow I'm spreading 2 cubic yards of mulch, I'll wear one of the nicer sports bras).

I shop on Amazon (make sure everything is Prime with free returns), Victoria's Secret and Aerie (both have good return policies, although you do need to go to a store unless you're ok with paying return shipping).

u/Truant_Muse · 7 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

If it is an oil stain you may have to take it to the dry cleaners, but generally I do not dry clean any of my silk tops unless something gets on them that I cannot clean myself. I hand wash all of my silk tops using a no rinse detergent called Soak there are a bunch of different no rinse brands, this is just the one I happen to use. There are instructions on the bottle for how to use it, but I'll add that after I soak my tops for the proper amount of time I gently squeeze them out over the tub I've soaked them in, then I lay them flat on a towel and gently but firmly roll up the towel with them in it like I'm creating a jelly roll. This will help get out some of the excess water so that they're not super drippy when you hang them up to dry the rest of the way.

I know that may sound a little involved, but all told it takes maybe a half hour and I usually do it once every other week.

u/notsorrycharlie · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice

You can wash it on cold in a gentle cycle if you absolutely have to throw it in the machine, but if you use hot water on it or put it in the dryer it will shrink and felt (felt = the fibers will basically meld together and the nice pattern on your sweater will be almost completely indistinguishable). If you need to wash it, though, the best way to do it is to wash it by hand with a special wool wash soap, something like this and then lay it flat to dry on a sweater rack like this.

u/dubiousunicorn · 2 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Also, as far as the care of your clothing goes, I'd really recommend getting away from store bought detergents and fabric softeners. They're full of chemicals and are harsh on your clothing and hard on your washing machine. I've fallen in love with using soap nuts, distilled white vinegar, and wool dryer balls to do all my laundry.

Soap nuts:

Wool dryer balls:

And a great stain remover:

Then, I just keep a big container of white vinegar around to use as a fabric softener. If you like you can also add whatever essential oils you like to either the vinegar or onto the dryer balls (or both). Orange oil is my favorite, and I like this bigger bottle:

I've found this saves money, water, energy, the whole shebang. I also have really sensitive skin, so switching to this way of doing laundry has really benefitted me all around.

u/Madky67 · 0 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Have you ever used Soap Nuts I bought some a couple months ago when I was researching the best organic free and clear detergents. They work really well and you can make a liquid out of it and use it aa a shampoo, cleanser, and cleaning products like glass cleaner. The only problem is that I have forgotten that the little baggie of soap nuts were in the wash and threw it into the dryer with the rest of the clothes. But it didn't seem to hurt anything. Puracy is my favorite liquid laundry detergent and it has a pump , so it's doesn't make a mess and is nice and easy.

u/passeriformes · 3 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

This is what I use. It seems pricey, but 2 capfuls washed about 8 silk shirts (and could have done more, if I'd had more to wash. Plus it smells amazing. And when you compare it to the cost and energy of getting your tops dry cleaned, it's really pretty reasonable.

u/Falom · 2 pointsr/ClimateActionPlan

I hate to be a corporate shill, but the products these guys produce is amazing.

I use the hypoallergenic laundry soap (the one that comes in a cardboard bottle) and their dishwasher soap and they both work like a charm, and they aren’t that much more expensive than alternatives that are more harmful for the planet.

Also the dishwasher soap works like a charm and it gets anything off dishes 99% of the time, even if it’s the most caked on thing in the universe.

u/kayleighh · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

My favorite movie is Hot Rod because it's hilarious. I love to watch it and get other people to watch it. I also love to quote it and love when people understand the references.

Here's the $20 item. Here's the $5 item. I'm not dead set on either of these so feel free to choose different if I'm picked.

I'm not sure...when I did my contest I ended up giving multiple small gifts. But it was a pain in the butt because of the Add-on Item nonsense. I think my next contest I will do one item. So there's that.

u/DJWafflesnatcha · 2 pointsr/Dakimakuras

I've machine washed mine for a year now with no issues. Cold, gentle cycle using laundry delicate bags. Hang dry them on a drying rack with no wringing and they're good to go!

Edit> Oh yeah, I use dye and perfume free and clear laundry detergent too. Like All Free and Clear

u/impecuniousyouth · 2 pointsr/AskWomen

Heads up- forever new bra wash is great to use. Just get a little bucket to dissolve the powder in (cool) water, and kind of dip and rub your bras in the solution. Better for your bra fabric, super gentle on sensitive skin.

u/Scoutbaybee · 15 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

This is lame, but I love doing laundry! First off, use all of the settings on your washer. Take the time to switch the water temperature, spin speed, etc if your washer allows it.

For whitening clothes, I like using some Borax (I put it in the spot for the prewash detergent), and then when they seem to be getting dinging some liquid bluing. That will usually do the trick with tee shirts, towels, sheets, etc.

For hand washing I usually, resolve a little bit of the same Borax in my sink. I used to use woolite, but I always forget to buy it, and the Borax seems to work the same (so one less thing to remember at the store).

u/ExternalUserError · 9 pointsr/travel
  1. Go carry-on only and do laundry on the go. Don't try to bring fresh clothes for every day you're there. Bring 3-4 days of stuff tops. Check out Travel Tide Pods and a Scrubba. Don't bring 2 when 1 will do. Don't bring 1 when 0 will do. You need less than you think.
  2. Don't worry too much about "travel" clothes; regular clothes are fine and won't make you look like a tourist. Get clothes you can mix and match.
  3. Game every system you can for points, miles, whatever. I like Amex Starwood Preferred Guest and Chase Sapphire Preferred with a Schwab checking account. None have foreign transaction fees, the credit cards are good for accruing miles, and the Schwab card withdrawals at worldwide ATMs for free.
  4. Lonely Planet guidebooks are your friend. Use a Kindle or just rip out the pages you need. It's okay. You can destroy a book.
  5. Do not, under any circumstances, fly Spirit Airlines.
  6. In the developing world, obviously, don't drink the water but do bring a water purifier. There are lots of options. REI is surprisingly good for that kind of travel gear.
  7. Have a backup plan if your wallet is stolen. Somewhere, stored separately from your wallet, have a second ATM card at another bank, a credit card at another bank, and a photo of your ID or whatever. Losing your wallet abroad can be one of the worst things ever, but it's not so bad if you have a backup wallet with other cards ready to use.
  8. Check out Project Fi.
  9. Most of all, be friendly. Know you're a guest in the country you visit and respect local customs, even ones you disagree with. As Rick Steves (patron saint of travel) says, smile with your eyes.

    You might check out Rick Steves' travel tips video series on YouTube. Here's a playlist.

    EDIT: Actually that playlist isn't very good. But here's a video on packing light and here's one on money/safety. Just check out his various "tips" on YouTube.
u/nadapotata · 3 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

When steaming isn't enough and I actually need to wash delicates, I hand wash with Forever New. It's a powder that dissolves easily in water, has a nice scent, and I feel like it does a good job of cleaning (and rinses easily!). I only use a little bit at a time, so I expect the bottle will last quite a while.

Boxers x 14, Socks x 11, Tank Tops x 6, T-Shirts x 10, Shorts x 3, Nike Swim Shorts x 2, Penfield Jacket, Sweatshirt, Plaid Button-up, Fairplay Joggers x 2, Jeans, Hat, Sunglasses, Bandanna/Headband, Face Cloth x 2, Toms Shoes, + what I'll be wearing on the flight (Tee, Jeans, Nikes)...

AUKEY Portable Battery Charger, Beats by Dre Headphones, Canon DSLR, Chant Portable BT Speaker, Outlet converters, Earbuds, Charging cables x 3


A boatload of toiletries/pharma in that little bag, TSA Approved Bag Lock, Microfiber Travel Towel, Herschel Packable Daypack


Books x 2, KIND bars x 10, extra hat, hoodie.

I think that's it. I'm fortunate that I'm not sweaty/smelly so I'm packing light on the shirts/tanks because I can re-wear + I'm bringing these Tide Travel Sink Packets which are pretty handy. Keep in mind I'm a shorter dude as well, so if you're over 5"10, your clothes might take up more space.

u/lechevalnoir · 2 pointsr/CrossStitch

I use the same wash as I do for my bras, link to amazon but as others said, woolite works well too. Some people have thrown them in the washing machine, but I really don't trust it. Also, as long as you are using DMC floss you are okay, but otherwise be careful of non-color safe floss because it'll run. =)

u/SloanethePornGal · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

I just washed everything last night! All his plush toys, all the swaddles, all the blankets, etc.

I wash all my clothes in Seventh Generation free of all dyes and scents but then I add a small capful of this awesome detergent called Diva from Tyler. It's like $28 but lasts forever bc you only use a bit. It smells amazing and I always get compliments on my scent!

So I wash baby's stuff with the unscented stuff and then when I wash mine I throw in a small capful of Diva. But I'll probably stop once baby is born since I don't want him to have to snuggle up to anything too heavily scented.

What's a cheap way to launder wool/cashmere? I am so tempted to buy The Laundress Wool & Cashmere Shampoo - Cedar but it's expensive... is there a good alternative or is it worth the hype?

I have a fair amount of wool cashmere that I probably need to wash like 1 or 2 times per month.

u/En-Taro-Tassadar · 2 pointsr/Dakimakuras

Ziploc bags are fine. Just make sure they are completely dry before you store them as you wouldn't want any mold to grow. If you use a washing machine any bleach free detergent should be ok to use. Don't use softener. If you're hand washing I've been using this stuff and I like it because it's no rinse.

u/flyawaylittleone · 2 pointsr/arcteryx

THIS is the detergent, and

THIS is the DWR restoration product I use for my Arc'teryx gear.


\^ Should do the trick, though keep in mind a garment bag is best practice. A wash-in DWR restoration + detergent product also exists, though this method is a bit less effective than a standalone product.

\^ As far as dryer heat goes, I'd avoid full heat and take to a laundromat if your dryer doesn't have a "medium" or "low-heat" setting. Better safe than sorry, especially with a Beta SL!

I am in desperate need of Laundry detergent. Down to my last load of laundry that I have to do today. Was laid off a few months back and have a job interview tomorrow, but after that I'm out of cash and detergent for at least a few weeks.

Have you seen the Woolite extra dark care? I use this on all my pants. I'm a newb though so I can't tell if it's really any better.

A few months ago, before MFA, I wore jeans that were way to big/baggy and I washed them every single wear and they all still look somewhat decent and I'm pretty sure some of them have been washed almost 50 times.

u/TheRagCompany · 3 pointsr/AutoDetailing

I personally use Tide Free & Gentle at home. The All that /u/KyleWrap suggested is pretty much the All-equivalent of the Tide I'm talking about.

Basically, the goal is to make sure you're not introducing any softeners, bleach or other additives that could affect the fibers/pores of the towels. (Such as fragrances)

Next time you've got a microfiber-related question, head over to /r/Microfiber and we'll help you out!

u/Ned712 · 3 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I'd use Granger's ( this is what our warranty department always sent out to people and after using it a number of times it's a far superior product to nikwax.

Also .make sure to dry it in the drier with a little heat. This helps reconsititute the DWR. Super critical step

u/temple_noble · 2 pointsr/Weakpots

Get some of this stuff and pour a capful into the wash when you wash your blankets. Instantly 10 times more comfy. It's just perfume, but it smells like happiness.

u/sukrose · 1 pointr/Outlier

Granger's Performance Wash. It's a bit pricey for how little you get, but you don't need much. I filled the cap 3/4ths of the way and used that on a wash with 5 Outlier pants. After a quick tumble dry, water resistance was back to normal. Good luck!

u/jenni5 · 1 pointr/randomgifts

i would love some soap nuts for laundry. they are cheaper to use and easier to use and store than laundry detergent which i am out of. im unemployed and i dont have a lot of funds so this would really help me!

u/saphydoodle · 4 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I've seen lots of recs for Soak as a no-rinse delicate wash though I've never used it.

I personally am a fan of the Forever New wash for handwashing delicate items and bras. It's super easy to use. I fill a sink with cold water, add the detergent and swish to dissolve, put in my clothes and agitate for like 30 seconds and then wait for 3-5 minutes. Then I drain the sink and rinse each piece quickly and hang dry. I find that it gets out stains really well (even old yucky ones) and doesn't leave a residue.

u/annoyingstungun · 2 pointsr/onebag

Like a lot of people I'll use Bronners when travelling but at home I'll use Kookaburra as its great for wool (in the Scruba and in a normal washing machine)

u/DasWheever · 1 pointr/cycling

Washing the shorts is extremely important. I don't get saddle sores, and and I wash my shorts after every ride.

Although saddles sores happen, it's not considered a "normal" part of riding, and can become quite painful and even can require being lanced and drained by a Dr.

I suggest you buy some cheap padded liners from Amazon and wear them under running shorts or something. (I used to use these before I surrendered to full blown lycra:

They're pretty comfortable, and affordable. Buy 5 pairs for commuting. (Or however many days you need them.)

I also recommend Something like no sweat detergent for washing shorts: (Smaller bottles are available.)

Have you tried bleach or something like Oxyclean in the laundry? Or, go super old school with bluing

I always use this Woolite detergent on my mostly black wardrobe, I've definitely noticed less fading. Friction also makes blacks fade, so I also always wash on the cold, delicate cycle and hang dry the clothes that I care about.

I use a wool and cashmere detergent. This one in particular. Works well for me. Bonus, I finally hand-washed my cashmere scarf I've had for two years. And it's so soft!

u/reservedegotist · 1 pointr/veilance

Do you know whether the wash + waterproof combo washers work as well or is it better to wash and spray (when necessary)?

Amazon link to the product in question

u/RstyKnfe · 4 pointsr/Outlier

Yeah, whenever you feel it's worn off.

I wash em with this. If you hang dry, tumble dry on low for like 10-15 minutes after they're dried to activate the waterproofing.

There's a great sale going on for that brand, btw.

Kookaburra is what I use on my Smart Wool base layers, Outlier t-shirt and Wool & Prince dress shirt (all are 100% merino wool). The lanolin refreshes the antibacterial quality of merino.

$0.63 per wash is a pittance to pay considering how infrequent merino wool needs cleaning. I specifically bought merino for its anti-odor quality, so refreshing that is important to me. Considering the cost of those garments, I want to extend their life as much as possible.

I use a garment mesh bag for cotton undies/tops and hand wash all delicates including undergarments and clothing items I don't want to risk with this, it's amazing:
I hang dry everything.

Washing on cold with a detergent made for dark clothes should keep oxfords pretty bright for a good long while, but ultimately everything fades over time.

u/amelisha · 3 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

Sometimes you can get away with wool BLENDS in the dryer (depending on the specific one and the fabric care label), but I would never put a 100% wool sweater in a dryer, ever.

I do wash wool sweaters specially labelled as “machine washable” in the machine (on cold, on delicate, in a front loader with no agitation arm) and lay flat to dry, but that’s as far as I go. I’ve felted too many sweaters in my past to take chances.

I usually prefer just to fill up my bathtub a couple inches deep, add some wool-specific detergent and let my sweaters soak for twenty minutes or so while I’m doing other housework, then drain and rinse, carefully squeeze the excess water out, and lay flat to dry. Keeps them looking nice and fitting correctly for years.

Tide makes travel packets of laundry detergent. They are perfect for doing your laundry in a sink or bathtub.

Woolite Darks also helps keep black clothes dark.

Worth every cent.

u/fashionfades · 4 pointsr/Outlier

What detergent are you using? Have you tried any of the scented wool washes, like Eucalan, Laundress, and Kookaburra?

The merino wool items can be used everyday. I'm personally about a week and half into a trip with:

  • smartwool boxer briefs x 3 (and cotton boxer briefs x2)
  • wool & prince 150gsm longsleeve merino
  • wool & prince 250gsm longsleeve merino
  • outlier slim dungaree pants x2 (black / dark indigo)
  • wool & prince work shirt x 2 (green & gray)
  • outlier ultrafine merino x1 (grey)
  • smartwool underpants base layer
  • darn tough long socks x 2
  • columbia sweater
  • patagonia torrentshell
  • along the trip, I purchased an Arc'Teryx Atom LT Hoody - my god this coat is amazing, worth the price
  • redwing iron ranger boots

    For onebagging merino items are indispensable, imo. I was always warm as fuck, even in ~0 degree temps in Lamar Valley, Yellowstone, at 6am. When I was hiking around ~1pm, I had to ditch my columbia sweater layer because I was too toasty.

    I wore the outlier tee as an underlayer on the plane + 4 days in a row, which included hiking/walking around yellowstone and other cold outside areas.. it just didn't smell. I only washed it because it was weird to go so long without doing so.

    The boxer briefs I only wore once. Even if merino has cool properties, it grosses me out to wear underwear multiple times in a row.

    I washed the outlier tee, boxers, and the long sleeve tees with Kookaburra soap. I read somewherewhere on here that Dr. Bronners isn't that good for the health of the merino, but people seem to use it just fine.

I am currently using All Clear Detergent, is it a good detergent? :(

u/Noixd · -1 pointsr/Outlier

Use this to wash your merino stuff. Make it feel thicker and nice!

u/frenchpressgirl · 26 pointsr/blogsnark

Laundry nerd chiming in here. Discoloration on sheets is probably from sweat, so you don't want to use chlorine bleach (which could react with the proteins and cause further yellowing, all credit for this knowledge to Jolie Kerr of Ask a Clean Person). Instead, look at oxygen bleach (e.g., OxiClean) and/or bluing.

u/Datnewraaaaaandy · 1 pointr/skiing

Get a tech wash, something like this

u/wildbillhiccup · 2 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I use Forever New to handwash my bras, and I like it. Haven't tried it in a machine, though.

u/ladyboss_1 · 1 pointr/randomgifts


If you have never tried these ( soap nuts ) they are awesome. Im getting low on them. I originally got the soap nuts they last a long time and replace both soap and fabric softner... I hope I did this right.

u/blorpitude · 6 pointsr/AskWomen

In the sink with warm water. I use this detergent.

u/Irenarch · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

This is what I've done for the last five years or so:

Fill a plastic tub with cold water, add sensitive clothes inside out, then add a capful of a no-agitation cleaner like Soak. Leave for 15 minutes, squeeze dry (or roll in a towel), then leave on a flat surface/lying flat on a drying rack to dry. (Don't leave anything hanging!)

Done this with cashmeres, wools (light and heavy), denims, thin/sensitive tees, whatever. Contrary to the article, I've also done this with viscose blends with absolutely no issues.

u/The_Unapproachable · 7 pointsr/lds

Hard water is one of your biggest problems. The calcium build-up combined with sweat makes them really dingy. Here are some links: one, two, three. I use OxiClean and sometimes Borax and get good results. (I've had some of my garments for twenty+ years and they look fine color-wise.) Occasionally I use Mrs. Stewart's Liquid Bluing -- it's on Amazon -- especially with my white shirts.

u/theanxiousotter · 1 pointr/simpleliving

I have personally never tried these but my aunt swears by "soap nuts" which are berries with naturally occurring soap-like properties. You just toss them in with your clothes, and you can use them for a few washes each.

u/tt-asha · 2 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I machine wash all of my wool and cashmere with The Laundress wool and cashmere shampoo on cold delicate in a lingerie bag. I find that my sweaters don't shrink any further after the first initial wash.

u/koko_bean · 6 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

It's not really a detergent as such. But here's a reliable link: Soakwash Liquid Laundry Wash, 12-Ounce, Scentless

u/suzepie · 1 pointr/femalefashionadvice

I haven't tried it yet, but there's a detergent specifically for this purpose: Woolite Darks.

u/isthewonder · 5 pointsr/vegan

I like soap nuts or soap berries. You just stick a few of them in a pouch and leave it in there for a few loads.

u/moosejock · 8 pointsr/onebag

Shampoo, or whatever soap you have handy. I sometimes carry small packets of actual laundry soap:

u/also_anon_dc · 1 pointr/scuba

I always bring 1-2 small travel size packs of Tide to do laundry in the sink. This let's me pack fewer clothes and they'll dry quickly on the deck clothesline.

u/titansweep · 1 pointr/bjj

I have heard that liquid bluing works wonders. Ironic, I know.

EDIT: Never tried this myself.

u/birthday-party · 3 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I swear by Mrs. Stewarts' Bluing. You add a few drops of it, and it "blues" your whites, counteracting the dinginess. It won't affect the black and IMO works more thoroughly than non-chlorinated bleach. I'd wash with something good for darks and add bluing to every few loads.

I also know a lot of people use Shout Color Catcher to keep new clothes from bleeding, but this might catch the black your clothes are losing and keep them from blending into your whites.

u/chilfhunter · 1 pointr/rawdenim

I got blood stains on my well worn APC's, you just have to live with it and embrace it. Eventually they will fade out with a few washes and is barely noticable. You can still see them on mine, but really only on the weft when turned inside out.
Trying to blot it out will just make it worse. You also order Woolite Dark from Amazon.

u/tesfox · 1 pointr/homeowners

It's quite possible I've been using too much. This is the detergent that I use, I canb't find any info on the measuring cup, but I'd wager the 3-4 lines run 1/4+ cup. I also use about the same amount of non-chlorine bleach in every load. I did discover I was putting the detergent in wrong, after the clothes instead of before.
