I love practical gifts, but that doesn’t mean they can’t incorporate a little luxury. While doing laundry yesterday, the idea for a clothing care gift basket popped into my head. I think there’s a renewed interest in making our clothes last longer, which is good for the environment, and good for our wallets.
Laundress + le labo Santal (sandalwood) detergent. I’m featuring Laundress products because I’ve used and loved them for years. They’re non-toxic and cruelty-free (as is le labo). I love le labo’s Santal fragrance, and am very tempted to try this detergent.
Laundress sweater comb. This is the one I use, and always pack in my travel toiletries kit.
Laundress Stain Solution. It’s non-toxic and biodegradable. One bottle treats over 200 stains.
Wool dryer balls. I switched from disposable fabric softener sheets to wool dryer balls several years ago, and have never looked back. They reduce static and wrinkles, and help clothes dry faster without damaging fibers, your dryer, or the environment.
Laundress Wool & Cashmere Shampoo. This is another product I’ve used for years and love.
Mesh washing bag. This is my laundry Secret Weapon. I use these bags to wash any delicates in the machine, as well as wool and cashmere sweaters, scarves, and cloth masks.
Laundress Cashmere Spray. Great for discouraging moths and refreshing items after wear.
Small clothing steamer. I bought one of these for travel, but now use it frequently at home. Easier on delicate fabrics than ironing.
Laundress Fabric Fresh Spray. Freshens clothes between launderings.
What would you include in a Clothing Care Kit?
