Don’t know what to do with your “dry clean only” clothes that need refreshing? Well, it’s not a good idea to chuck those garments into the washing machine with the rest of your dirty laundry. But since everyone’s go-to dry cleaners are closed for now, what’s the move?
These delicate pieces need special treatment — and that doesn’t just mean hand-washing them in the sink with standard detergent. For silk and other fabrics prone to damage, there’s an amazing product out there was designed to effectively wash without harm — and it just so happens to smell incredible too!
This wash by The Laundress was created for the most precious, priceless clothing items in your wardrobe. It’s made from plant-based ingredients that fight stains and return your garments to their original glory. You can definitely use this detergent in the washing machine on the delicate cycle, or be extra careful and opt to hand wash. It just takes two capfuls of this product in a small bath of cool or warm water to do the the trick. Afterwards, lay your laundry to dry flat, and voila: Clean clothes without leaving the house!
This product was originally launched out of frustration with the massive dry cleaning bills the company’s two founders, Gwen Whiting and Lindsey Boyd, were racking up. They were understandably fed up with spending big bucks maintaining their curated wardrobes, only to have some of their most beloved garments damaged!
Boyd actually singled out the Delicate Lady Wash as her favorite product. In fact, she’s been hand-washing all of her clothes for years, and we can only imagine how much money she’s saved in the process!
But the range doesn’t stop there. The Laundress has created numerous products designed for different types of fabric. There’s a cleanser that can tackle your every need — from the Wool and Cashmere Shampoo to the Denim Wash Detergent. They have even partnered with Le Labo to create detergents infused with their signature, luxurious scents. Oh, and did we mention John Mayer is a fan? We’re sold.
