As moms, we’re most likely the primary (if not sole) person responsible for laundry in our homes. We want our family’s clothes to be clean and bright, but what many of us don’t know is that while our clothes may look clean, some detergents can leave behind trapped body oils and sweat deep in the fibres of our clothes- even after washing! We’re all familiar with the stubborn yellowish stains that can linger on white shirts after several wearings: stains that can prove almost impossible to remove from underarms and collars. These stains are caused by the lingering body oils and sweat trapped in the fibres of our clothes.
But the days of stubborn stains and odours are over! New Sunlight® Deep Clean™ laundry detergent contains a powerful combination of ingredients that safely penetrates the fibres of clothing and helps remove trapped body oils and sweat that other detergents can leave behind. It is scientifically proven to clean not only visible everyday dirt and dried-in stains, but also helps remove lingering body oils and sweat that you can’t see. Sunlight® Deep Clean™ delivers a deep clean and freshness like never before*. Available in Fresh Rain® and Cold Water variants and works for all machines (HE and standard).

200 members of our Go2Girlz panel recently tried new Sunlight® Deep Clean™, and put its claims to the test on their dirtiest, smelliest laundry. So what did our real-life moms think of Sunlight® Deep Clean™ laundry detergent on their real-life laundry? Well, their feedback was overwhelmingly positive, and in fact nearly every single tester said they would not only buy Sunlight® Deep Clean™ again themselves, but they would also recommend it to a friend. Our testers tried Sunlight® Deep Clean™ on dried-in stains, dirt, grime, grass, food, blood and odours, and they were nearly unanimous in their praise for this product.
Overall, the Go2Girlz loved the scent of Sunlight® Deep Clean™, with only one or two testers finding the scent slightly overpowering (these testers would prefer a scent-free product like Sunlight® Sensitive Skin™), and most of our testers said their family loved the fresh clean smell of their clothes. The Go2Girlz panel were unanimous in their feedback that Sunlight® Deep Clean™ cleaned at least as well as their regular detergent, and nearly all of the 100 testers reported that Sunlight® Deep Clean™ did a better job at removing stains (including old, dried-in stains): even without pre-treating or additional stain-removing products!

But what did the Go2Girlz themselves have to say? Here’s a sample of their feedback:
I am a big fan of Sunlight® products and looked forward to trying out the newest version of their laundry detergent. I loved it!!! My laundry has never, ever smelled so fresh and clean! Tracy, Mom of 3
The children got spaghetti sauce on the tablecloth. I put it in the washer without any stain pretreatment and it came out beautifully! Melodie, Mom of 3
Was amazed by how fresh the clothes looked after being washed. Priscila, Mom of 1
I was impressed that this detergent was able to completely remove embarrassing feminine stains (at that time of the month they do happen!) without any pre-treating at all. I’ve never seen a laundry product do that before. Kate, Mom of 2
Playing soccer in the rain is muddy business and there have been times
where I have had to replace soccer shorts & socks before the season
was over because the mud just wouldn’t come out. After one particularly
muddy game I did not pre-treat things when we all got home. I crossed my
fingers and placed them in my HE washer and used the Sunlight® and …
IT WORKED – no more mud!! Thanks, I will be buying this. Trish, Mom of 3
The smell is sensational and the clothes feel and smell better!! Laura, Mom of 1
My clothes came out smelling great and looking clean and bright! Kara, Mom of 4
My 8 year old son said he liked the smell of his clothes! Naomi, Mom of 3
I washed a pretty white top of my daughter’s that had become dingy
and stained, despite repeated stain treating (even tried soaking it in a
bleach solution). The Sunlight® Deep Clean™ got it brilliantly white
and even removed a small yellow mustard stain that I thought was there
for good. Thank you for giving us back this pretty shirt, Sunlight®!
