I am The Laundress | Matthew Malin

Sep 26, 2016

In 2004, Matthew Malin opened MALIN+GOETZ with his partner Andrew Goetz in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood, focusing on the needs of men and women with sensitive skin. Matthew Malin and Andrew Goetz waited on each customer themselves for the first three years and still live in Chelsea around the corner from the store, similar to chemists 100 years ago. Today, there are six MALIN+GOETZ locations in the U.S. and you can find their products at retailers like Barneys New York and Bloomingdale’s.

As longtime fans (and friends) of MALIN+GOETZ, we were excited when Matthew agreed to give us the scoop what laundry day looks like at his home in Upstate New York.

My most laundered item is…

My favorite laundry tip or trick is…
Not allowing the laundry to pile up and washing throughout the week.

The most important laundry tip I learned growing up was…
Separating colors, darks, and whites.

I make laundry an enjoyable task by…
Having and using beautiful products by The Laundress. Really, I love seeing the bottles on my shelf, they look great and I love smelling the freshly laundered clothes. It makes a chore special, elevated, and pleasurable.

My proudest laundry victory is…
Washing my dogs’ dirty towels after a bath.

My favorite Laundress product is…
The Laundress Signature Detergent  

I used to be afraid to wash…
Linen and fancy knits, but I am fearless.

My laundry room is…
A favorite spot near the door to my patio and off the kitchen. We were able to repurpose white marble that was being discarded from demolition for our laundry room floor.  It’s really fancy, just like The Laundress.
