Our Soap Stick is effective on most stains, including red wine, tomato sauce, juice, coffee, chocolate, dirt, grass, oil, grease, blood, sweat, and baby messes. It’s safe on most fabrics, including lights, darks, colors, cotton, linen, wool, silk, and synthetics.

We use only what you need to clean your clothes: an unscented vegetable soap stick made with organic coconut oil that easily lathers on wet fabric.

All of our ingredients are MADE SAFE® Certified, Leaping Bunny certified cruelty-free, and vegan. We list every ingredient, including scents, on the front label so you can see what’s in your stain remover.

Our plastic-free stain stick is packaged in a recyclable paperboard box.

Net wt. 1.7 oz. (48 g).

Pre-treat stains before washing with our Soap Stick. The sooner you can treat and wash a stain, the better. Simply wet the fabric in the stained area with warm water. Rub the stain stick vigorously on the wet fabric, using friction to work up a rich lather on the stained area. Wash the garment as normal after treating the stain. Avoid drying until the stain is gone, or else it might become more stubborn to treat.

Our Soap Stick is effective on most stains, including red wine, tomato sauce, juice, coffee, chocolate, dirt, grass, oil, grease, blood, sweat, and baby messes. For grease and oil stains, hot water can help lift the oil from the fabric.

The stick is safe on most fabrics, including lights, darks, colors, cotton, linen, wool, silk, and synthetics. An exception is pigment-dyed fabrics, which essentially stain fabric with a color that can be easily removed by the soap. Always defer to the care instructions on the product tag. We recommend testing any new or delicate fabrics and surfaces in an inconspicuous area before cleaning fully.

The Soap Stick is also effective for hand-washing clothes, making it an excellent travelling companion. Just fill a bucket or sink with warm water. Submerge your dirty clothes in the water and rub them with the stick, focusing on any dirty or sweaty areas that need extra attention. The water should get sudsy from the soap. Let the clothes soak for a bit, then remove and rinse them thoroughly. Let clothes air dry.

Wash your clothes using our Laundry Powder detergent. Simply add half a tablespoon of powder directly to your HE washing machine drum before adding your clothes. Our Laundry Powder does not contain enzymes, so it is safe to use for washing natural protein-based fibers like wool and silk. It is also safe to use with all water temperatures and gentle enough for baby clothes and people with sensitive skin.

For loads that need a boost to remove stains and sweat odors, you can add our Oxygen Brightener bleach alternative to a wash alongside our Laundry Powder. This color-safe product brightens, whitens, and deodorizes your clothes by removing the dinginess and build-up that accumulates over time and reviving fabrics to their original vibrancy. We recommend adding up to a full tablespoon in a standard washer, and a half tablespoon in an HE washer. Oxygen Brightener is not compatible with natural protein-based fibers, such as wool and silk, or with septic systems.

Ingredient disclosure and transparency is the cornerstone of our business. We list every ingredient on the front label of each product and here on our website. Our Ingredients page lists the technical name, chemical identification (CAS number), country of origin, and additional details for every ingredient we use.

You'll never see the word "fragrance" on our ingredient labels. This catch-all term allows companies to hide ingredients that are potentially harmful to the health of people and the planet. In the US, hundreds of ingredients in the "fragrance" family have never been tested for their impact. Every product is available in an unscented base formula. We also offer products scented with organic essential oils. 

Our vegan, plant-based Vegetable Soap is made from organic coconut oil that is processed into soap, resulting in the following ingredients:

Sodium Cocoate is the chemical name of organic coconut oil that is saponified, or 'made into soap’. It's the chemical that grabs onto both dirt and water to do the cleaning.

Glycerin is chemically a type of alcohol and is naturally created when the oil is converted into soap. We do not add any additional glycerin to our soap. 100% of the glycerin present is a byproduct of the soapmaking process and is vegan and cruelty-free.

Organic Cocos Nucifera, or organic coconut oil, is left in the soap after conversion to sodium cocoate. This is because we use sodium hydroxide, or lye, in the conversion process, and leaving excess oil ensures there is no remaining lye in the finished product. Our coconut soap has only a very small amount of excess oil, so it is designed to get tough jobs done without leaving oil behind on your clothes or in your washer.

Water is used in the soapmaking process to dissolve the lye and help evenly mix the oils and lye together for a complete saponification reaction. After saponification is complete, the water evaporates. There is only about 5% water in the finished soap, making it more shelf stable than a liquid soap that would require a preservative due to the high percentage (about 60%) of water.

How to Use Our Soap Stick

How to Use Meliora Laundry Powder - Wet Fabric

Wet the stained fabric with warm water

The stain stick is most effective when used to pre-treat stains before washing. Wet the stained area or the whole garment with warm water.

How to Use Meliora Laundry Powder - Rub with Soap Stick

Rub the stained area with the soap stick

The friction caused by rubbing a solid soap directly on the fabric helps to remove stains. Be sure to work up a good lather.

How to Use Meliora Laundry Powder - Wash as Normal

Wash as normal soon after pre-treating

The sooner you are able to treat and wash the stain, the better the results. Avoid drying before the stain is gone, or else it might become more stubborn to treat.

I can’t say enough good things about these products

Low environmental impact, effective cleaning, gentle on skin, great scents (or none). Try them if you haven’t. Your skin, clothes, and our environment will be better for it.

GREAT for all stains, especially oil-based

I love using this for oil-based stains like salad dressing that nothing else works on. Also helps get grime off of collars and wrists. I rub on before washing. And it's plastic free!


Gets out any stain, love it!

John Greenfield
Simple and Great

The Soap Sticks are a hit! Pre-treating stains is a breeze. Love the product!

Betsy McG
Amazing results

We are full-time traveling in our campervan and this little stain soap stick is THE powerhouse at removing stains that has become our “go to”. Whether it is laundry day or days and miles from it, we simply dampen slightly, give the area a good scrub with the stain stick, and voila, when we do laundry, the item in question comes out of the wash clean and ready to go. I have tried other brands of stain removing products -various spray & wash, oxi-clean, tide, resolve and kind to name a few - which all were ok to a point, but this one has not let us down on anything we have encountered. We gave it as a stocking stuffer to numerous friends and family we have been so pleased with it.
