“We’ re an eco-friendly line of detergent, fabric care, and home cleaning products that take excellent care of you, the things you love, and the environment.” ~Gwen Whiting and Lindsey Wieber Boyd
The collection of The Laundress New York Detergent and Fabric Care collection was founded in 2004. The two women who founded this wonderful product were “frustrated with dingy white T-shirts, faded denim, and prematurely worn pieces.” Because of all the chemicals found in dry cleaning and knowing that wardrobes are washable, ” we decided to research and develop our own laundry solutions- literally!”
Along with the frustrations that came with washing clothes, a similar feeling came about with cleaning homes and offices. The founders also say “from dish detergent to window cleaner, our Home collection has proven tough on dirt yet safe for you, your home, and the environment.”
If you are already thinking about storing your cashmere and wool wardrobe, you can use the wool and cashmere shampoo which is cedar scented to naturally repel moths and bugs.
The Laundress believes that 90% of all clothing labeled, “Dry Clean Only” is actually washable. Cheers to the Laundress!
