I am The Laundress | Jennifer Vallez, Sophie & Lili

Apr 25, 2017

Iconic illustrator Jennifer Vallez’s artwork graces the living rooms, playrooms, and even holiday cards of customers across the globe. Starting with custom family portraits and dolls, Jennifer’s portfolio now includes collaborations with big names like Land of Nod, Oh Joy! and American Greetings. At home, this wife and mother of two is surrounded by lots of laundry and loads of love. We caught up with this artistic entrepreneur to catch a glimpse of what laundry day looks like at her Connecticut home.

My most laundered item is…
I have two girls with a lot of clothes and husband who runs daily. We always have a pile going. 

My favorite laundry tip or trick is…
My mother taught me to gently roll my hand washables in a towel vs ringing or squeezing the water out.

I make laundry an enjoyable task by…
The Laundress products smell so good and make our laundry super soft. It has changed the way I view “doing laundry.” I also like to put Spotify on and play music while folding.

My proudest laundry victory is…
When I can get all my girls’ camp laundry clean the day they get home!

My favorite Laundress product is…
Le Labo Rose 31. I reserve it for my favorite pieces of clothing.

I used to be afraid to wash…
Cashmere and wool. Now I use the Wool & Cashmere Shampoo in my sink. The pieces come out perfectly.

My laundry room is…
One of my favorite rooms in my house. Our old house had the laundry in our unfinished basement. It was not a pleasant experience. Now we have a dedicated bright, clean space.
