"We should all do what in the long run gives us joy, even if it is only picking grapes or sorting the laundry."

Co-founders Gwen Whiting and Lindsey Boyd met while they were both students in Cornell University's Fiber Science, Textile and Apparel Management and Design program. Frustrated with their dry cleaning bills, the two fashionistas channeled their energy into making detergents that could extend the life of their wardrobes while still being eco-friendly. (They test all their products on themselves!)

Did you know that 90% of "dry clean only" items can be washed at home? Not only will you save money on dry cleaning bills, but The Laundress detergents are highly concentrated and use fewer ounces per load. You can use them in any washing machine as they are HE-compatible.

The Laundress has a custom solution for all of your shirts, socks, and stains! We carry everything you'll read about below:

Everyday Cleaning

Signature detergent: For all-purpose laundering, The Laundress Signature Detergent is perfectly formulated to whiten, brighten, and preserve color while removing stains. Their start-to-finish laundering collection is scented in Classic, the ultimate “clean laundry smell", blending lily of the valley and jasmine with sweet musk, sandalwood, and a touch of citrus.

Whites: Fight dull, dingy-looking T-shirts, yellowing sheets, and other lacklusters with Whites Detergent. Classic scent.

Darks: Formulated with hardworking enzymes and color guard, Darks Detergent keeps dark and brightly colored items rich and vibrant while removing lint, dust, and pet hair. Classic scent.

Le Labo: The Laundress and Le Labo united to blend the finest of modern perfumery (their Rose 31 fragrance) with their best-performing Signature Detergent formula. Rose 31 (a 31-ingredient combination) is designed to be both feminine and masculine. It evokes a chorus of warm, spicy, woody notes such as cumin, olibanum, and cedar, touched by a hint of amber, surrounding a centifolia rose scent.

Stain Solution: Whether you’re rescuing a brand-new shirt or reviving your antique bedding and heirlooms, just one drop of this powerful solution effectively removes stubborn stains both old and new. Stain Solution is ideal for protein and tannin stains, such as wine, coffee, ink, grass, etc.

Specialty Supplies

Delicate: From lingerie and other items labeled “dry clean” to silk blouses and scarves, this special formula removes perspiration, body oils, and stains while cleaning and preserving fabrics. Ideal for silk, synthetics, spandex, polyester, nylon, rayon, acetate, and blends. Why dry clean when you can provide better care for your delicates at home, minus the toxins and extra cost? Scented in Lady, an herbal and citrus blend of rich amber, bergamot, lavender, and musk.

Denim: This unique wash blends detergent, fabric conditioner, and color guard to clean and protect it properly. Clean, soften, and preserve color, leaving your denim with that perfect worn-in feeling. Classic scent.

Wool and Cashmere: This pH-neutral fabric wash is gentle on the natural fibers of wool, cashmere, merino, mohair, and more. It thoroughly cleans, removing odor, dirt, and oil, while preserving your sweaters’ soft and supple hand and natural lanolin for decades to come. Scented in Cedar, a modern take on the traditional woody scent that combines sandalwood, orange, and rose with a base of cedar. While you'll love cedar, moths and critters don't!

Sport: This formula works tirelessly to keep activewear in top form, helping to remove perspiration, odor, and stains. Ideal for all performance fabrics, including nylon, spandex, cotton, and synthetics. You'll love the scent of fresh, crisp leafy greens, orange, rose, eucalyptus, and jasmine with undertones of musk.

Fabric Fresh: This nontoxic formula with antibacterial properties adds scent while removing odor. Spray to freshen clothing and bedding between washes, or use to deodorize outerwear, car interiors, sneakers, and luggage. (It works great for closets and drawers, too!) Classic scent.
