Your Wardrobe Will Thank You
If you've done a Marie Kondo on your wardrobe lately, chances are the remaining pieces spark joy! In that case, you'll want to keep them around for as long as possible. Steering clear of the dry cleaner is one way to go about extending the longevity of your wardrobe. The chemicals used in the dry cleaning process can actually accelerate the wear and fading of clothing, while using The Laundress formulas can actually preserve and extend the life of garments. For example, our pH-neutral Wool & Cashmere Shampoo works to remove odor and stains while invigorating natural fibers and preserving the fabric's natural lanolin for years to come. In most cases, "dry clean only" items don't need to be cleaned after each wear. Find out 5 ways to freshen garments between washings here.
