Mary Ellen Edgar is the founder of Eucalan and her story is an inspiring one. Her venture into the world of alternative laundry products all started with a visit to a friend who gave her a home remedy for a no-rinse laundry product. Living in the country and accustomed to economizing with well water and a septic tank, Mrs. Edgar tested the formula herself and was amazed at the results; her husband’s wool sweater washed up beautifully.
The derivative of the company name, Eucalan, is the combination of two of the ingredients from the original product formula — eucalyptus and lanolin. The eucalyptus scented product is still available along with sweet-smelling lavender (which like eucalyptus has moth-inhibiting qualities) and grapefruit, which has natural disinfectant properties. There is also a non-scented option for people with scent sensitivities and the newest jasmine scented “Wrapture.”
Available at Cross & Woods in 500ml and 100ml eucalan
