Dry cleaning is crazy expensive (not to mention bad for the environment and your threads). So what’s a New Yorker to do? Call on the eco-friendly detergent, fabric care and home cleaning line The Laundress and ditch the cleaners for good.
Little-known fact: Ninety percent of clothes labeled “dry clean only” are actually washable, and The Laundress is spreading the word with their new “We Love Laundry” movement. Here’s how it works:
Step 1: Give The Laundress a spin by signing up for their email newsletter. Next, they’ll send you a free sample of clothing wash that’s specifically formulated for wool, cashmere or delicates.
Step 2: When you’re ready to make the switch, you’ll get 20 percent off, plus free shipping for orders over $50 (or $5 flat-rate shipping on everything else) when you order through their website. Not sure where to begin? Try the Dry Cleaning Detox Kit to eliminate chemicals from your clothes forever.
Step 3: Enjoy your incredibly clean and fresh-smelling clothes. See ya, cleaners.
