Extend the Life of Your Cardigans


Hand washing a delicate sweater is no fun task. I had to find a way to make this tiresome chore more pleasant.

I recently discovered The Laundress, a gentle line of products that will actually help extend the life of your clothes. I was particularly drawn to their Wool & Cashmere Shampoo, which is designed to preserve the natural fibers of the yarns in your cardigans and sweaters. The Laundress products are made with natural, renewable resources with a plant (not petroleum) base that’s free from dyes, sulfates, phosphates, and chlorine. No artificial fragrances, either – these products are scented with essential oils like sandalwood, lavender, citrus, and vanilla musk. The line is also biodegradable, non-animal-tested, and comes packaged in recyclable plastic.

Off I go.
