Laundering Directions for Jojoba Spills

Jojoba’s non staining quality is very important to our clients. We receive many comments on how important this quality is. Massage therapists love that it doesn’t stain the sheets and doesn’t cause a rancid smell after a year. Others love that it doesn’t stain their clothing if they accidentally spill it or put too much on. When used properly, our jojoba will stay in the skin. If it is coming out on linens and clothing, you are very likely using too much. Try reducing the amount of jojoba being used to reduce skin of jojoba transferring to fabric.

Our jojoba launders out of natural fabrics with the use of hot water and a good detergent. For synthetic and dyed fabrics we sometimes use a pre-wash. If you have combined oils, lotions, creams or essential oils with our jojoba, they could the cause stains. Also, and especially for massage therapists, if you applied lotion or cream to the skin prior to the massage, those substances could cause staining. If you use cold water and dry the fabric, a mark may be visible. Relax, the mark will not be permanent. Likewise, the mark will not turn rancid. Off-putting odors will not be a problem. The next time you launder the item, cover the mark with a pre-wash, dishwashing liquid makes a nice treatment. We especially like Shout stain treatment or Dr Bronner’s Sal Suds. After pretreating, use hot water and your regular detergent. The mark will launder out. Or, if very hot water is not available, learn from this tip one of our our customers gave us. She had found a jojoba mark on her dark 100% cotton turtleneck, which had not come out in a cold wash. She re-washed the garment after putting soda water and baking soda on the mark and letting it soak for a bit in her machine. Even though the garment had already been through her dryer, the mark came out.

Brian, one of our employees, noticed that he gets a lot of jojoba on his shirt cuffs when attending trade shows. He simply adds a little Sal Suds to the cuffs before laundering in hot water with an all natural laundry detergent. They come out clean as a whistle every time. This method also works when there’s an accidental spill of jojoba on clothing here at the office. It’s worthwhile to note that some non-toxic laundry detergents don’t work very well at getting jojoba out of clothing. If your detergent is one of these, simply pretreat with a laundry stain treatment, dishwashing detergent, or Sal Suds.

I just wanted to email to say that I'm so in love with Jojoba.

The glide is perfect and I have yet to find another product that can rival its positive effects on the skin. And as a therapist who does mostly medical work, it is a wonderful thing to have found a product that none of my clients are allergic to.

I did a lot of research on what to use on my skin and then where to get it. I know I made the right choice.

After few days of using it, I must admit that the product has proved itself beyond my expectations! My 4 year old son was suffering from a red bottom due to frequent wetting. Since I've used the Jojoba, his skin is bright, clean, and with no signs of red. I'm very grateful to you.

I ordered one gallon of jojoba online yesterday afternoon and I received it this morning at 9:30!!!!!
Thank you so much for your prompt service.

After reading that it was not toxic for animals, I treated My dog's inflamed area. It was raw, scabby, and quite itchy. I treated the spot directly, massaging through the hair to her skin. I also covered that area with a shirt, to ensure our dog would leave that area alone. Within days, I noticed an improvement.

I love your stuff. I've been using it for years and refuse to use anything else. I've tried them all. Your jojoba, is by far, the best available.

Bella Donna

I bought your product... and my husband thought it was just another product I had to have - now he uses it all the time and reminded me when we're running low. So we both think it's great. Thanks.
