Laundry in Bali – That magical scent. Is it Kispray?
The sweet aroma is so good that everyone wants to know what it is.
Some people swear on their life that the scent you smell is the Kispray ironing aid – a Balinese laundry product used to smoothe, soften and freshen your clothes, like a “Wrinkle Relaxer”!
Could it be?
Kispray Pink? Four scents to tempt you, plus Kispray Gold!
Kispray comes in four fragrances:
- Amoris (powdery floral scent)
- Bluis (a springtime refreshing scent)
- Violet (a sweet floral scent)
- Segeris (which smells like jasmine)
- plus, the super-fancy Kispray Gold.
You can buy Kispray in a spray bottle for about one dollar AUD, or stock up on Kispray sachet packs you can pop in your suitcase to keep you in supply for months to come. (Just add water).
Kispray vs Rapkia
For those addicted to the fresh Bali smell, there’s also other Bali laundry products you can try too.
Some Bali regulars swear the smell is not Kispray at all, and say it’s either the Rapika ironing spray in the pink bottle with the fragrance ‘Sweet Pink’ or the Molto fabric softener (the light blue one preferably, but the dark blue and pink ones smell similar too.)
Rapika is an alternative to Kispray that can be used as a deodoriser on soft furnishings such as lounge suites, bedding, clothing and curtains, and as a room spray if you are so inclined.
If you do use Molto, add a small amount of this fabric softener to the final soak of your washing cycle. Molto is available in single use sachets or 300ml soft packs. Buy both of these at Carrefour, Bintang Supermarket, Hardys, or Mataharis.
You can also try Snappy. Buy this at Anna’s Laundry in Legian.
The verdict on Kispray Bali
I think the jury is out on this one. That means it’s up to you to buy a few of these ironing aid products (they are cheap – less than a few dollars each) and see which one takes YOU back to lovely Bali, the Island of the Gods.
Hot Tip for family travel
Laundering all the clothes once more before leaving Bali is the key to making that relaxed holiday feeling last longer.
Just unpack and put the clothes away.
Having no huge laundry pile to battle when you get home is the ultimate bonus.
How to use Kispray Laundry Liquid
There’s plenty of uses for Kispray. Check out these ideas below.
- spray a watered down version onto furniture, carpets, and curtains to bring the scent into your home everyday
- spray onto a cloth and wipe down the seats, upholstery, and interior of your car
- use a small amount in your floor mopping water – use clean towels to dry your floor to prevent slips
- empty a sachet into the softener container inside your washing machine for an extra smelly boost of Kispray scent
- you can also spray a diluted solution of it on the washing just after you hang it on the line, and let it fragrance set in.
Where to Buy Kispray in Bali?
All of the big supermarkets stock Kispray Laundry products – try Carrefour on Sunset Road, Bintang Supermarket in Seminyak, Hardys in Kuta or Sanur, or Mataharis anywhere.
Where to Buy Kispray in Australia?
Run out of Kispray or Molto? Need to stock up back in Australia? It is possible. Visit Bali Fresh. Jaz, who is originally from Bali, but who now studies and lives in Sydney, will be more than happy to help you.
