Soak Wash

Soak is a great gift for a graduate who’s  struggled with their laundry over their university years or for the high school grad just embarking on the task! Soak is an environmentally-friendly, bio-degradable laundry detergent intended for hand washing delicates and athleisure wear. Their product is skin and fabric-friendly,  and free from harsh chemicals. The popular formula is no-rinse, meaning you just have to soak your clothing, and it’s good to go. This product makes handwashing easy and is the perfect practical gift!
