About The Laundress
Get ready for info that might annoy you: Plenty of the items in your closet labeled “Dry Clean Only” are actually washable. Yes, that means you’ve been paying for a service you don’t need. (Sorry.) Ditch the painful dry-cleaning bills — and the chemicals — with The Laundress. In 2002, Gwen Whiting and Lindsey Boyd left their careers in fashion to create a plant-based line of laundry detergent. Their signature formula is designed to whiten, brighten, and preserve color while removing stains. Today, The Laundress has expanded to include home-cleaning solutions and pet-mess kits, all with a light environmental impact and sold in recycled packaging.
Why we love them
These plant-based formulas can tackle any load of laundry, from filthy dishrags to highly shrinkable wool sweaters. To cover all your bases, go with the Laundress Kit that includes the brand’s top sellers, including the Classic Signature Detergent, the Wool and Cashmere Shampoo, the Delicate Wash, and the Sport Detergent. KCM’s Alissa swears by The Laundress Stain Solution to treat both old and new stains. It’s highly concentrated, so a little goes a long way toward removing tough stains like red wine, or freshening up old bedding and antique fabrics. It’s magic in a stylish bottle.
