Darks Detergent by THE LAUNDRESS is specially formulated with a color guard , protective and stain fighting agents to keep you darks and brights sharp. In addition it has an agent that removes lint during the washing cycle, a leading cause of visual fading of dark laundry items. This formulation is incredible for all-black clothing and our brightly-colored Palatino Socks.

The formulation of the Darks Detergent is similar to The Signature Detergent but with a higher concentration of color-protecting enzymes. This formulation will keep the integrity of your darks so that they do not fade or dull prematurely.

FOR BEST RESULTS: Always pre-treat soiled areas with The Laundress Stain Solution or Wash & Stain Bar.

Made in the United States

This detergent is enzyme-based and contains no petroleum-based soaps, which helps protect and maintain the integrity of natural clothing fibers better than mass-market laundry detergents. It is also all-natural, biodegradable and non-toxic. The formula is highly-concentrated and appropriate for both hand and machine washing. This product can be used in both High-efficiency and Top-loader washers.

The following natural, stain-fighting enzymes can be found in this detergent:

  • Protease: Targets and breaks down large and complex protein molecules into peptides and amino acids which are easily removed by surfactants.
  • Amylase: Targets and breaks down starch-based stains significantly increasing the efficacy of the detergent. They are best at removing starchy stains with low protein content, such as chocolate and spray starch.
  • Lipase: Targets and breaks down fatty soils originating from animal fat and vegetable oils. Lipase removes fatty stains that strongly adhere to fabrics.
  • Cellulase: Removes soil while brightening and softening the fabric during the wash cycle. Cellulase also acts as an anti-pilling agent which is the removal of microfibrils from the fabric. The effects of this enzyme are cumulative and increase considerably with the number of washes.
