I’m having a spring clothing cleaning crisis. Three times this month I took some very expensive pieces to the popular dry cleaner in town ( who shall remain nameless but, you know who you are) and the items, all three mind you, came back exactly the same way as I took them in. I am not a messy person so I think a teeny bit of makeup here or there should be easy to remove if you know what you’re doing, but based on my result at said dry cleaner I felt like giving up.
Most of the items I was bringing in said I could hand wash but I just didn’t trust myself with stain removal. I’m good at alot of things- cleaning has never been one of my talents. So I called some friends at The Laundress and asked them to motivate me and turn me into a confident at-home-cleaning machine.
It was either good timing or a sign from above b/c they are currently encouraging everyone to take their 30-Day Clean Home Challenge. (Get 20% off when you buy 3 or more of their nontoxic, eco-friendly solutions. Not quite ready to commit to the challenge? That’s ok. Sign up for their newsletter and they ’ll send you a free sample to get you started. boom. )
A few days later, some new products arrived at my door along with a small how-to booklet (thank god). The packaging was so pretty that I hardly wanted to open any of them. Maybe this will make cleaning more fun? I grabbed a j crew tee that I wore only once and had had a small makeup spot on the front. I followed directions and pre-treated with their stain solution, and then hand washed with the signature detergent. “Out damned spot!” Not only did it work but smelled really great so I followed up with adding two capfulls to my next load of laundry. Obsessed with that clean laundry smell.
I felt good so moved onto my next challenge: using the scented vinegar as a rinse aid in the dishwasher. Absolutely worked- no spots! And then I started to feel good so I tried what I was most nervous about- the all purpose bleach aid. Used one my white denim- they were already pretty white, so I’ll try this again soon.
Overall I can tell you that I’m kind of hooked. I even decided what I want next from the site ( a sweater comb and wool and cashmere spray.)
