Delicate Testimonials – Put it to work  


I just love your products. I have a lot of wool cycling clothes that I use Kookaburra Wash on. It is so gentle and smells great. I bought the Delicate for my 22 month old grandsons stuff, he has allergies and washing his sheets, blankets and clothes in the Delicate has helped him a lot. I will be buying more soon. I enjoy being able to buy the larger 1 gallon size. –James Tuten- Stone Mountain, GA

I use the Delicate on my infant’s clothes. Clothes come out soft, clean and smelling wonderful. With a little pre-scrub before washing it has even taken out what I thought would have been stain because of a very messy diaper. -Amber-

The Kookaburra Wash is indispensible for my knitting projects and my wool sewing projects. I wouldn’t trust either to any other textile cleaner. My time and my clients’ investments are both too precious to entrust to something that only “may work”. The Kookaburra Delicate keeps my lingerie in like new condition; Kookaburra Scour actually cleans my husband’s clay impregnated clothes! Kookaburra Wash keeps our whites looking pristine and our colors looking vibrant! Can you tell I am a real fan of your products! -Hilda Kauffman-

Kookaburra is one of a handful of products made in the States that gives true value for it’s price. Initially I only used the Wash, but am equally wowed by Delicate and Power. I threw out my other multi-purpose cleaners and rely on Power for all surfaces around my apartment. Ordering is easy and delivery is prompt. -Megan- New York, NY

You should have infomercials about Delicate. I am a silk fanatic and I don’t use anything else on my silk garments. I have tried everything and Delicate is the best silk wash ever!

I only used Kookaburra Delicate on my 2 youngest sons and even during the summer heat no rashes or irritation on their skin. I wish I had Delicate for my first 2. -PF- CO

Power Testimonials

I think I have told everyone that comes into the pharmacy how wonderful Kookaburra products are!! I never would have believed that our broadloom carpet would be clean!! Before we moved in we had a very reputable carpet cleaning service come in and they spot treated it (twice) and steam cleaned it with their very impressive huge van based machine. When it dried thoroughly the stains from former renters began to reappear, we then tried every conceivable potion to no avail. We were at the Canon City, CO farmers market when we saw you and you gave us samples to try. Skeptically, we tried the Power sample on a particularly bad stain and it came out!! Even with the older model of carpet cleaning machine that we have, it worked a miracle!! We returned and bought Power and set about cleaning in earnest. I cannot tell you how many times we changed the tank and were both impressed and appalled at how filthy the carpet was!! Our broadloom carpet is now at least 7 shades lighter than before, we thought that it was supposed to be a darker brown mix, we were SO wrong!! The cream color is now distinct and the browns are really sharp! I cannot say enough about your product!! Nothing has “risen” to the top and we couldn’t be more impressed!! The Power even got out the smell of where our dog had a few accidents and he is no longer attracted to that spot, so you know it is truly gone!! Thank you so much, you definitely have a faithful customer!!! -Robin Wicks- Canon City, CO

Tour product just saved my living room carpet! My kids smashed a whole tube of RED lipstick into my carpet. I thought I’d be stuck replacing the whole house carpeting (has to match) in the place I am renting. Kookaburra Power on a wet microfiber rag is a miracle! Thank you for the great products!! -Lisa-

I only recently tried Power, which has become my all-purpose cleaner for everything from countertops to floors. It is far more effective than other “green” cleaners and, like all other Kookaburra products, leaves a light pleasing scent. –MR- Los Angeles, CA

I received Kookaburra Power from a friend. She gave it to me with instructions to use ½ oz with 24oz water in a spray bottle (I loved the smell so I added a bit extra). I used the mixture to clean my bathroom. When I finished cleaning I was pleased to have the smell of a spa rather than a public lavatory. - Jackie- Portsmouth, England

I have used Murphy’s Oil soap on my hardwood floors for years. I always followed that up with a light wax to pick up the residue left by Murphy’s. I tried your Power on my floors and followed it with the wax. The residue I was trying to pick up wasn’t there. Then I put the Power in my pressure washer and washed my exterior windows followed by a water rinse and a squeegee. The windows looked great. -Richard Castillo- Wetmore, CO

I want to tell you my tale of woe and how Kookaburra came to the rescue. Several weeks ago we had a huge stinkbug infestation in the bedroom and walk in closet. My husband was taking down the window air conditioner for the season and thousands of these awful insects came in. He vacuumed them up….. the only recourse…. And they released their terrible smell. All the clothes in the closet were covered in this horrible substance. Also affected were the bedding and all the surfaces: furniture, shelves, floor ceiling and walls. A nightmare! Anyway, I started doing many many loads of laundry and found that I could still detect the odor on the clothes. So I tried your product “Wash” in the machine which I had purchased for my knitted projects. It worked perfectly! And I love the tea tree aroma. Now I am tackling the walls, floor and ceiling with “Power”. I will probably be contacting you with another order for that. Thank you!!

Kookaburra is one of a handful of products made in the States that gives true value for it’s price. Initially I only used the Wash, but am equally wowed by Delicate and Power. I threw out my other multi-purpose cleaners and rely on Power for all surfaces around my apartment. Ordering is easy and delivery is prompt. -Megan- New York, NY

Hello, I just tried your product “Power” & I was so amazed to discover how quickly it works. I had a couple of spots on my carpet from my puppy. I had tried everything from vinegar to the top spot removers from carpet companies. Imagine the excitement I had when I discovered I put on the carpet of “Power” took the spot right out as well as the odor. Wow! I have been singing your praises to everyone I talk to. I can’t wait to try your other products. I was considering pulling up and replacing my carpet before discovering your product. With the economy the way it is, it was nice to find a product that worked. -Misty Dawn- Penrose, CO

Dear Kookaburra, I like many of your fans, just finished cleaning carpets with your Power product. I love that this is a job I can do with four little children in the house and while I’m pregnant with baby #5 and not smell any toxic fumes or fill my carpet with chemicals. I’m excited to try your other products! -Marybeth Nelson-

Scour Testimonials – Put it to work

Kookaburra Scour is FANTASTIC! It’s very economical as a little goes a long way and the measuring pour on the container and along the side is very helpful. I’ve recommended your product to my spinning friends and a group, and I will put up a recommendation on my blog. Apparently, folks are using some type of dish detergent (like ivory soap), which doesn’t work well on fleeces such as merino, and others that are heavy in lanolin. Your product cuts the scouring time in half! Great if you are an urban spinner (in other words, I don’t have hours to do multiple baths, nor do I have access to a top loading washing machine; to partially dry fleece, I use a salad spinner – for fleece only. -Sarah Briscoe, Bronx, NY-

The Scour has definitely met and passed my expectations, it’s a double WOW!!! I have been washing fleeces for over 30 yrs and never found anything I truly loved.. I settled for Dawn but this is a WOW!!! I washed very fine fleeces with lots of lanolin and I am beyond pleased with the outcome. You definitely have a convert and I will be not only singing it’s praises, I will be asking to have it in the shop that I teach spinning at as well. -Donna, Tucson, AZ-

It’s fantastic for cleaning mohair fleeces- just 1 or 2 washes compared to 3 or 4 with other cleaners. And it doesn’t strip the mohair so much that it looses it’s silkiness. -Mindy-

The Kookaburra Wash is indispensible for my knitting projects and my wool sewing projects. I wouldn’t trust either to any other textile cleaner. My time and my clients’ investments are both too precious to entrust to something that only “may work”.

I just wanted to share… I tried Scour on some 30 yr old yarn that was tacky and crunchy to the feel. I kept it as an example of what we did in the “early days”………… Anyway it’s amazing. I have soft wonderful fluffy yarn. 30 years of YUCK is gone. I also used it on some batts I had carded even though there was some grease in them….. bingo they are delightful to the hand and I can’t wait to spin them. You have a really good product here. I guess I am more pleased then you realize because I tried Wash on my fleeces many years ago and didn’t like the results at all. I went back to my Dawn.. So this has me happy indeed. I know you hear complaints but, I thought you should also hear some good news about this product. -Donna, Tucson, AZ-

I did my first trial test with Scour concentrate. I put 4lbs of fleece into warm water (just for the test I usually use hot water) Added 4 ounces of Scour and plunged intermittently for 30 minutes. I spun the water off, rinsed twice (it was a very sandy fleece) and it came out perfect. No grease or tacky feeling, nice, white and soft. 100% acceptable. This was a surprise to me because I usually do a pre-rinse in HOT water to remove the grease and aid in the 2nd wash. I was amazed at the successful attempt on the first try and relieved, that I have finally found a good no nonsense product. –Marge Mills, Marge’s Mini Mill-

Wash Testimonials – Put it to work

At first glance, I was surprised to see how small the bottle was for the price. When I realized that it is very concentrated, and how clever the bottle is for measuring, I perked up. Once I used it (both on the hand was setting in my machine and in the sink for some very special hand-woven shawls). I fell in love with the smell, the hand feel and how gorgeous my hand woolens were after they dried. Some of the Indian shawls were actually a bit scratchy before, and then very soft and fluffy after washing/drying which I was not expecting to see. I am thrilled with the product. -Tres Fontaine- San Francisco, CA

I love Kookaburra Wash. I use it on all of our sheets, towels and all of my husband’s clothes (and of course my hand knitted garments). My husband has extremely sensitive skin and Kookaburra Wash works better than any other laundry detergent I have tried including the detergents for sensitive skin. --Catherine Hueser- Sacramento, CA

I just love your products. I have a lot of wool cycling clothes that I use Kookaburra Wash on. It is so gentle and smells great. I bought the Delicate for my 22 month old grandsons stuff, he has allergies and washing his sheets, blankets and clothes in the Delicate has helped him a lot. I will be buying more soon. I enjoy being able to buy the larger 1 gallon size. –James Tuten- Stone Mountain, GA

I ordered Kookaburra Wash for cleaning several sheep and lambskins we use and have loved the job it did, but what a surprise to find out what an incredible stain remover it is. My three year old son literally poured grape juice down the front of a new white shirt. I used the Wash full strength on the area and washed it normally. The stain is completely gone. I now use a touch in almost every load and find it superior to everything I have ever tried for mud, chocolate, red wine and tomato sauce. And it smells great! Good on you, -Tina Flamberg- Santa Monica, CA

Kookaburra is the best wash I’ve found, and I recommend it to everyone. I wash all of our sheets, blankets, pillows, mattress pads and down blankets in it. It gets them clean, leaves them soft and no one is allergic to it. I wash all of my kids stuffed animals and dollies in it, as it’s the only product I’ve found that can get rid of pee smells or any other smells and stains for even “surface wash only” items. Not only that, but it gets them amazingly clean and safe to play and sleep with again. I am a knitter and knitting teacher, and I always tell all of my students to only wash their hand knits in Kookaburra. It’s the safest product for hand knits I’ve found, and it gets them very, very clean. Even after washed in another product, Kookaburra got out more dirt and softened my socks up better than I’d ever seen them. I never wash my sweaters or any hand knits in anything else. I’m so glad I can get it by the gallon! I’ll definitely be calling for more, as I go through quite a bit. It’s even good for my hubby’s clothes, he is a doctor and wears home some pretty icky stuff, so his clothes will e washed in Kookaburra as soon as it gets here. Thanks so much for a great product!!! -Carina Gunnerson-

Thanks for the wool Wash! Those of us who are devotes of your product know it is great for use on so many things, and I have found yet another. It is amazing in a Bissell steam cleaner on carpets! The carpet in my front room had been looking pretty rough- it was dirty, my old dog had an accident, and it was matted down from too much soap when the landlord had it cleaned. I was in need of some serious help and willing to try just about anything. I had a feeling it would be perfect for the job and I was right (I love it when a plan comes together!). The Wash cleaned it so well that the carpet fibers are now soft, clean and stand in a nice, thick pile. It even took the smell of “sick old dog” right out! Cheers -Suzanne-

I have been using Kookaburra Wash in place of Eucalan for about 3 months now and I truly love it. I am completely behind the use of Tea Tree Oil for it’s properties and use it in many other capacities besides diapering. The usage is about the same as Eucalan, but I find it much easier to use and it doesn’t get thick the Eucalan can. (My Eucalan bottle has a mass of lanolin at the bottom and it is almost impossible to pour). And it come with a convenient measuring chamber right on the 16oz bottle. Thanks -Eliza- Sunflower Derrieres

I should want to let you know that I used your shampoo (Wash) to wash some shearling coats(one with fox collar and cuffs) which were used. Once dried the fox fur has recovered his fluffy….. Really fantastic product. So, I decided to wash a raccoon jacket and obtained the same results! Really I could have never imagined that it was so useable. I did the first time on a 20 yr old sheepskin shearling from EVANS bought at a very low price, having cleaned here in France would have cost me 3 times the price I paid for it. So, I decided to use the shampss which I had bought for sheepskin saddle pads, having nothing else to lose. I am going to order a gallon of it, because I have many other furs to clean. All my congratulations for this unique product! Best wishes -Lise Gillet- France

The best wash we have ever used! Kookaburra Wash does it all, it’s lanolin rich formula gently cleans every natural fiber we have tried. From Bowron Lambskins and fleece to wool sweaters, rayon skirts and silk blouses. Plus, tea tree oil refreshens without degrading the fibers. We have used Kookaburra Wash for 2 years trying on everything we could think of and watching the long term results (softer, cleaner fleece and clothing). We enthusiastically offer it to our customers. We think you will be as pleased as we are! -Bob and Nancy- Philomath, OR

Great product, a little goes a long way; my jerseys smell great and are nice and soft. Wishing you much success. –Pete La Verghetta

Thank you so much. We are grateful to you and your product. It is the only product that cleaned our clothes after a major fire or soot and smell. –Aaron & Catherine Larget-Caplan

Kookaburra Wash is a very serendipitous product for me; I have always used and suggested hair shampoo to wash wool sweaters, etc to keep the lanolin in our yarn. The intriguing name Kookaburra caused me to check your web site where I learned enough to know I needed to try this wool wash. My test was on 2 of our very old barn knit vests; as carefully as these had been washed over a number of years, they had lost the soft feel of our fine wool yarn. This wool wash totally renewed them. Customers in the shop have handled them and agree. –Barbara Marr- Marr Haven Wool Farm

I couldn’t believe how great my Emu boots turned out! This is the first time in 2 years I washed them and this winter they got covered in salt stains, ALL gone with your Kookaburra Wash and they look like new. Thank goodness I found you folks, you saved me a lot of hassle searching for the right product! Emu and Ugg boots should really promote your product. Cheers, -Shannon Druet-

I have been using your Wash on my recuperating dogs sheepskin orthopedic doggie bed and it works great! My husband is allergic to many things and I have started washing his clothes in Wash too. Thanks, -Susan Girten- Canon City, CO

Thank you! I love Kookaburra. I am treating all my sweaters and other knitted things to a luxurious bath this spring. –Mary Anne- St Louis, MO

Thank you. My daughter introduced me to Kookaburra Wash last year. I used it mainly because I like the smell it gives garments and blankets I have knitted. I would like to note how easy it was to order from your site and the speedt delivery was much appreciated. –Robin- East Wenatchee, WA

“I was about to donate my sheepskin rug that I bought at Costco several years ago because it looked so dirty and sad. My Chihuahua had several “accidents”{ on it over the years and try as I might to get it clean, I had no luck. I was skeptical to put it in a washing machine but when I googled and saw Kookaburra Wash recommended to clean and I read the reviews, I figured I would give it one last try. I was really amazed how beautiful my rug turned out. I used a large commercial washing machine and about 3 ounces of Wash instead of the 2oz. I let it air dry for several daysaand it looks like new. So glad I didn’t get rid of the rug!! I then decided to wash wool area rugs that were quite soiled from kitchen use that I was going to replace. They cleaned up beautifully though the lower quality rugs backing broke down. The better quality rug looks great and is back in use. –Christina-

I use it for my hand knitted items. They come out soft, smell good and the tea tree give moth protection. -Carole-

I use it for blocking or washing my hand knits. Leaves a nice fresh smell when dry ?. –Amy-

I have a story – It’s gross but real to life; My toddler vomited on my “dry clean only” upholstered couch cushion covers. I washed and washed them in the machine with another cleaner that I like, but it was not until I used the bottle that I normally reserve for washing my woolens – Kookaburra Wash – that the smell came out! It was great. -Courtney Futcher-

The Kookaburra Wash is indispensible for my knitting projects and my wool sewing projects. I wouldn’t trust either to any other textile cleaner. My time and my clients’ investments are both too precious to entrust to something that only “may work”. The Kookaburra Delicate keeps my lingere in like new condition; Kookaburra Scour actually cleans my husband’s clay impregnated clothes! Kookaburra Was keeps our whites looking pristine and our colors looking vibrant! Can you tell I am a real fan of your products! -Hilda Kauffman-

Now I am tackling the walls, floor and ceiling with “Power”. I will probably be contacting you with another order for that. Thank you!!

I just wanted to say that I love your Wash. I use it the most mundane way – to wash my delicates in my front loader. They come out smelling so nice and I never have to worry that the integrity of the fiber is at risk. I bought my first bottle while visiting my sister in Oregon and I very happy to find you online and connected to PayPal. Best regards and many thanks, -Rebecca-

Kookaburra is one of a handful of products made in the States that gives true value for it’s price. Initially I only used the Wash, but am equally wowed by Delicate and Power. I threw out my other multi-purpose cleaners and rely on Power for all surfaces around my apartment. Ordering is easy and delivery is prompt. -Megan- New York, NY
You’ll think I lost my mind when I tell you this….recently I used Kookaburra Wash to bathe my two Corgi’s I used it because it is a plant based soap and tea tree oil is supposed to condition and soothe. As usual the pooches were not very happy to be placed in the bath tub! The soap did a fabulous job on their coats and they smelled nice too. Not like chemicals. I am going to continue bathing them with Kookaburra. -Mags-

I just washed a rayon poncho with dye boo boos which looked like blood spots. Guess what? After soaking in Wash the dye came off! I don’t know what else Kookaburra can do!! Told you about red wine spill on my carpet before? I want more people to try out this wonderful product and replace Woolite from every household. -Mitsuko Fredrickson-

I absolutely love Kookaburra Wash for cleaning my sheepskin lined saddle pads. The sheepskin comes out soft , supple and looking new again. And they smell good too. Thanks for making such a great product. -Laurie Reynolds- Genuine Trekker Saddles

I use Wash to wash my fleece saddle pads and horse boots. It cleans fabulously and they stay looking new and working like new. It also doesn’t irritate my horse’s sensitive skin. -Valeska-

I have sensitive skin and I am a chef. It’s the only soap that cleans the stains from my clothes and the itch off my skin! -Sol- Washington, DC

Your product is fantastic! Why isn’t it sold in stores, such as Whole Foods or Safeway! Well thanks for the great service. -John-

“You have a superior product and everyone I have turned on to it is very pleased”. -Sarah Briscoe-

I told you before how great Wash is on my Corgi’s but I wanted to share this story with you too. My brother and sister in law lost their home to a fire this spring. Of the few things that survived were some sweaters that our mother had knit for them. They were covered with soot and saturated with smoke. I washed them in Kookaburra and the soot and smell were completely eliminated. There was one that had a stain that didn’t come out but, the rest were good as new. Your product restored a piece of family that would have been lost forever. -Mags-
