Some players booting up Stray have been stumped by the game asking them to get Super Spirit Detergent.

Annapurna Interactive's feline cyberpunk adventure, Stray, has only recently been released and players are already eager to start progressing in the game. Much of its gameplay involves puzzles, which can be frustrating if one hasn't been able to explore the whole area or can't seem to piece together the clues.

Fortunately, we've already done the hard work. Here's where to find Super Spirit Detergent in Stray.

How to Get Super Spirit Detergent

Super Spirit Detergent can be found inside the Super Spirit Laundromat, one of the first buildings to the left of the elevator with the Guardian. Players will know its the right one due to the two Companion NPCs throwing paint buckets above it. Unfortunately, the door is locked, and the owner doesn't seem too eager to let our cat protagonist in.

However, he doesn't seem too thrilled to have paint buckets being tossed just above the threshold of his shop. In fact, he's pretty upset about it, as he mentions how they've messed up before. Speaking to the paint-bucket-tossing duo will elicit complementary responses about how one of them is incredibly clumsy and that the cat shouldn't distract them as they need to focus — or they'll drop a can.

This is exactly what we need. The following steps are pretty straightforward:

  1. Approach the Companion tossing the paint buckets to the other, slightly above them.
  2. Wait until the Interaction button prompt appears — not the "Meet" one.
  3. This will bring players to a mini-mechanic where they'll need to press the Meow Button, "B," when the word "Meow" lights up on the screen.
  4. If done correctly, the Companion will fumble the throw, causing the paint bucket to splatter on the ground below.

This will agitate the Laundromat owner, who will rush outside and begin irately cleaning up the mess — leaving the door open and unlocked! From here, all players need to do is head inside and grab the jug of detergent, located on the table directly left of the door.
