Our super-concentrated liquid Wilderness Wash™ goes a long way and is gentle on fabrics and skin but effective on dishes and laundry stains. It is biodegradable, phosphate, paraben and fragrance-free. We’ve also made sure that the bottles it comes in are tough enough and the lids are secure enough so you don’t have to worry about the soap leaking in your pack or bag. Use it in accordance with Leave No Trace principles (see below) and it is gentle on the environment, too.
Be used in lakes and streams? No. Biodegradable means that the product will break down due to biological action and UV, but it will harm aquatic life if used directly in streams, ponds and lakes. Practice Leave No Trace and wash / dispose of waste water 300ft / 100m from any water source.
Be refilled? Yes. We offer the 8.5oz / 250ml size, which can be decanted into a smaller Wilderness Wash bottle in your travel or backpacking wash kit.
Be used for wool or technical fabrics? Yes. It is a non-detergent formula which will not harm wool or degrade water-resistant technical fabrics / DWR finishes (make sure to rinse well after washing)
