The Laundress New York Blog
“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 & Lindsey
The Laundress elves have been working EXTRA hard this year to bring you our new, Limited-Edition Holiday Collection. Wrapped in a delightful pattern of pine trees and red detailing illustrated by Mr. Boddington’s Studio, the Santa’s Stain Bar and Holiday Fabric Fresh are the perfect stocking stuffer and hostess gift…or treat for yourself! Scented with fresh clean notes and hints of wine, pear, bergamot, coriander, nutmeg, and rose, topped off with spicy and woody notes, this collection is truly perfumed with the scent of the season.
Bid your warm weather favorites farewell – for the next season or two that is! All that’s required to ensure your crisp, white sundress or favorite pair of shorts are ready for wearing when the climate rises is to properly store. Have you ever noticed a yellow spot on a garment when unpacking? Perfume, body products and oils, food, and dirt often make themselves visible after a lapse of time making them MUCH more difficult to remove. Such residues also attract fabric-harmful critters such as moths and silverfish! How is one to prevent these inconvenient circumstances? Our Seasonal Storage Tips should help!
More Clean For Your Money
Trips to the dry cleaners are wildly inconvenient, especially when such a high price is paid for beloved pieces to be returned stiff and smelling of chemicals. That’s why we recommend saving yourself both the inconvenience AND the money by washing at home! After all, 90% of items labeled “Dry Clean Only” are actually washable.Read More
Re-introducing seasonally stored fall and winter clothing into your wardrobe and phasing out shorts and tank tops should be an effortless transition. You know how to store out-of-season garments like a pro, and getting your cozy, yet stylish woolens and cashmere ready for wearing is as easy as Steam, Spray, Brush (and Launder of course)!
The Laundress ladies are not solely fanatics of all things feminine. Menswear – and the proper care for these garments – just so happens to be another area of interest and expertise. In the spirit of the newly arrived season, we’ve picked out our most adored pieces for our lovely male counterparts.
Fall is officially here! Cue the merino turtlenecks, cashmere scarves and gloves, woolen throws, and all things made of fabrics that keep us oh-so warm and cuddly when bearing the brisk temperature. As these pieces offer us much needed relief from the elements, we can’t help but wear them again and again…and again! Now, cue the pills.
Pills occur from wearing (not a result of washing)! When fibers loosen, they form little balls, which tend to appear on loosely woven woolens, knitted synthetics, and blends. Luckily, we have not one, but TWO de-pilling tools that will maintain your pieces’ appearances while protecting the fabrics’ integrity. So which tool should you be using to satisfy all of your de-pilling needs: the Sweater Stone, the Sweater Comb, or both?Read More
