When you invest a lot of money in clothes, the expectation is that they are going to last and look good after the first wear (or wash). The relationship I have with clothes is definitely a love/hate one…obviously love at first sight but more often than not, I get irritated with my dark denim when they eventually fade after a few washes – and let me not start with the silks, cashmere or delicates that have ended up in my laundry room graveyard. Truth be told, our clothes could look better, longer if we gave our garments some “TLC” with the amazing products from The Laundress.
My introduction to The Laundress brand was a few months ago when I discovered the company’s infamous Crease Release spray. As a busy woman on the go, not to mention sub par ironing skills, this spray has saved my life in between meetings, during fashion week and while traveling. With it’s fresh, clean laundry smell, this miracle solution is sprayed on clothes from 6 inches away and is the simplest way to remove unwanted wrinkles from your clothing while on the go.
For years the jury has still been out in regards to caring for denim, especially dark washes. I have tried just about everything; washing my jeans inside out, spending hundreds of dollars on having them dry cleaned and the wackiest was not washing them at all and instead putting them in a ziplock bag in the freezer to kill the bacteria. After years of trial and error, the mystery has now been solved with The Laundress Denim Wash. With the sweet scents of citrus, lily of the valley, sweet musk and jasmine, this 3-in-1 detergent, fabric softer and colour guard, keeps your denim looking and feeling brand new. Effective in all water temperatures and can be used both with hand wash or in the washing machine.
If you think these products sound brilliant, then you need to discover the variety of other products Gwen Whiting and Lindsay Boyd developed under their label. In addition to eco friendly detergents and fabric care, you can also find sweet smelling home fragrances, every kind of household cleaning product and tool you can think of, travel and trial size items, tips on how to remove stains, clean with vinegar and more.
