Our Story

It all started with two fashion wardrobes and one vision...

About Us

Frustrated with the lack of proper laundry solutions available to clean their clothing investments at home, two New York City fashion executives and Cornell Textile & Fiber Science alums founded The Laundress. Leaning into their expertise, cofounders Gwen Whiting and Lindsey Boyd created a collection of fabric care and “dry clean alternatives” for people who want the very best for their clothes.

Fast forward 20 years and our mission remains the same: to provide you with the solutions to treat your clothes like heirlooms – and deliver a cleaning experience that feels like a beautiful self-care ritual. Crafted with the highest quality fabric and surface-loving ingredients and bespoke, perfumer-crafted fine fragrances, our products are tailor-made to address your most challenging cleaning conundrums.

From capsule T-shirts, designer denim, and vintage “dry clean” skirts to fine china and marble countertops, our solutions and expertise help you take the very best care of your favorite things so you can fall in love with them over and over again.
