Minimal Essentials – Laundry Stain Removing Sticks


Formulated from excellent non-toxic ingredients.
Shampoo With A Purpose (SWAP) only works with quality suppliers (Australian sourced as often as possible) and all their inputs are eco-sustainable. This allows them to create a product that is 100% vegan, cruelty-free and palm-oil free. SWAP is certified by Orangutan Alliance; a non-profit organisation that promotes the reduction of non-sustainable palm oil in consumer products. Products are scented using essential oils. All bars are condensed through a triple milling process that ensures unbeatable longevity reducing unnecessary wastage. Staff work in a comfortable and supportive environment with a “family comes first” motto.
SWAP was the first Australian company to step away from tallow based and produce plant-based soap. The entire SWAP range comes in plastic-free packaging, including compostable cardboard, reusable aluminium tins or innovative compostable plastic. For shipping only recyclable jiffy post-packs, cardboard boxes, shredded paper, eco-friendly paper bags, biodegradable tape and packing paper are used. In the SWAP warehouse and through the production process; reuse, reduce, and recycle is incorporated. A rainfall collection water tank is also found on-site. SWAP aims to introduce even more eco-sustainable products so consumers can make more eco-swaps with a goal to initiate change at large.
Raffle donations are often made to local fundraisers such as schools, dance groups and sports clubs. SWAP further makes product donations to those in need, including their local homeless shelter and food bank. Each quarter they donate $1 from every Aussie Pet Wash Bar sold to local animal shelters. Furthermore SWAP supports like-minded small businesses by promoting them on their flyers along with social media collaborations. Societal and environmental change can only happen together.

What our experts say...


Minimal Essentials Stain Removing stick is spot on in regards to its useability. It’s small so easy to use in your hands, suds up well and effectively removes stains from your clothes. Smells great too.
Lots of ethical, sustainable and low tox practices in this great business.

I really love the way these stain removing sticks lather up easily without using much water or much of the sticks. They’re fantastic for getting stuck into those tough, stubborn stains and are also a handy travel laundry solution. Super easy to use, ethically made, kind to our planet and skin…what’s not to love?! It is clear that Shampoo With A Purpose is deeply committed to delivering on their ethical and sustainable promises. These values are at the core of everything they do and incorporate this ethos into all elements of their business, supply chain, packaging and product. I was especially excited to see that they are certified by the Orangutan Alliance and was impressed by the impact that they have already had to date by preventing 2 million plastic bottles from entering landfill.

I loved how effective and powerful this laundry stain stick was in removing tough oil stains. I enjoyed how the stain remover is in a stick form where you can concentrate on the exact area of the stain while minimally using the product. I believe this stain stick will have a long lifetime in my laundry while continuing to combat many more stains to come. It is small yet powerful. I valued that the ingredients are not only free from palm oil, but the company offers a give back initiative that fights the main negative causes that the palm-oil industry contributes too. Any brand that fights the war on deforestation, loss of wildlife and pollution is a winner in my eyes.
