Several weeks ago, we told you about a survey which revealed that British women wash their bras only six times a year (on average). In that article, I discussed a proper lingerie care regimen, which is largely based around a good, reputable lingerie detergent. The makers of Soyelle sent me a few samples of the Soyelle Fine Lingerie Wash to try out, and I was very pleased with my experience!
Soyelle’s biodegradable and phosphate free lingerie wash comes in individual “unidoses.” Each dose is packed in thin plastic, so it is perfectly measured out – you don’t have to worry about fumbling with a measuring scoop. But the best part is that the plastic actually dissolves in cool water. So you just toss a packet in the water and you’re ready to go. When I used mine, I timed it, and found that it took about 30 seconds to dissolve. That’s more than enough time to round up whatever needs laundering, and it couldn’t be easier! These single doses also make Soyelle great for trips or weekends at the beach, especially since it also removes chlorine, suntan lotion, and salt water from bathing suits.
Laundering with Soyelle was pleasant and easy. There was a light, pleasant scent while I was washing my lingerie, but when I took everything off the drying rack the next day, the fabrics were scentless (which I was happy about, because then it doesn’t compete with my perfume!). I’m stashing these everywhere – in my laundry room, my overnight bag, my suitcase, and my beach bag. Soyelle is available in both hand-wash and machine-wash amounts, so you can always use just the amount of detergent that you need.
Soyelle not only offers lingerie detergent, but also many fun lingerie-themed items like brooches, sticky notes, linen fragrance, bra pads, cards, notepads, perfumed sachets, and cookie cutters. French customers can shop online at the Soyelle online boutique, or in more than 700 boutiques. If you’re outside of France, you can contact Kathryn at email@example.com to discuss ordering. If you are a lingerie designer or distributor, Soyelle can also work with you to create personalized gifts which you can give to your customers. Soyelle has already created partnerships with brands such as Antinea, Chantelle, Eres, Gossard, Lejaby, and Princesse tam.tam.
