I use The Laundress products because…
The clothes we wear touch our skin directly. Because of this, it is important that I chose natural materials like linen and cotton that are comfortable to wear. It doesn’t make sense to wash these clothes with detergent that contains petro-based and SLS which are strong substances that can irritate the skin.

I feel it’s important to choose detergents with strong power to take dirt off and also be friendly to my skin. Because of these reasons, I select The Laundress brand for my laundry.

My favorite laundry tip or trick is…
Six years ago, I read The Laundress blog about “How to Wash Your Down Jacket at Home.”  I was very happy to learn I could wash winter clothes beautifully without going to the dry cleaner.

I make laundry an enjoyable task by…
Using The Laundress products when I am doing laundry. For everyday laundry, I use Classic and Lady fragrance products. These elegant fragrances make laundry a very enjoyable time!

My proudest laundry victory is…
I had given up on clothes with old stains that couldn’t get rid of, but using All Purpose Bleach Alternative and Wash & Stain Bar removed stubborn stains for me. Since then I am fan of using The Laundress to clean stubborn stains on canvas tote bags and sneakers.

My favorite Laundress product is…
My favorite is Fabric Conditioner! It removes bed sheets wrinkles and when I am washing by hand I can feel gradual softness in materials.number10
I used to be afraid to wash…
My fur scarf! Since I met The Laundress, I made a policy to do most of my laundry myself and using Wool & Cashmere Shampoo to wash very delicate materials.

My laundry room is…
There is rainy season in Japan so I have created an area to dry laundry inside. It is best to dry under the sunlight, but the elegant fragrance of The Laundress products relieves me from gloomy feelings. When drying inside, I use All-Purpose Bleach Alternative.
