Think of wool as dry clean only? Think again. Not only do these natural beauties clean up well, washing them can help preserve fibers, making your supple sweaters last longer and saving you time and money.
Just Add Water…and The Laundress
We’re here to show you how washing wool coats and jackets from the comfort of your own home can be more convenient and way less expensive than multiple trips to your local cleaners. Plus, if your favorite outwear are always clean and cared for, you’ll wear them more!
What You’ll Need
The Laundress Stain Solution, The Laundress Wash & Stain Bar, The Laundress Mesh Washing Bag, The Laundress Wool & Cashmere Shampoo, The Laundress Wool & Cashmere Spray, The Laundress Sweater Comb, The Laundress Cashmere Brush
Say “So Long” to Stains: Treat stains with Stain Solution or the Wash & Stain Bar by applying it directly to spots and susceptible areas like collars and cuffs. Both stain removers are plant-derived, nontoxic, and safe for all fabrics.
Put It In Reverse: Prepare to wash by turning the item inside out. Wash with same or like colors only.
Bag It: Place in a Mesh Washing Bag to protect buttons, zippers, and other hardware throughout the wash cycle.
Select Your Cycle: Select the woolens or delicate cycle on your washing machine and make sure the water temperature is cold and the spin is on low. Add Wool & Cashmere Shampoo considering the machine type and load size.
DRY & FINISH
No-Rush Drying: Lay item flat in its natural shape on a drying rack or clean towel. When drying, avoid direct sunlight and heat sources, such as the radiator, because they can shrink or damage wool. Never hang wet wool.
Steam It Up & Stay Fresh: Ironing can crush or flatten the natural pile of the yarns. Instead steam to remove wrinkles, odors, and bacteria. You can also spritz Wool & Cashmere Spray between wearing and washing. It’s a safe non-toxic, allergen-free fabric spray that naturally repels bugs and moths.
PILLS & LINT
Banish Pills: Remove pills by gliding the Sweater Comb across pilled areas. Always work tools in one direction.
Brush For Beauty: Use the Cashmere Brush between wears to remove lint, fuzz, and hair and release natural oils that rejuvenate yarns.
The Laundress Product of Perfection
While other popular wool washes have a high pH level that is harsh on wool and cashmere, the Wool & Cashmere Shampoo is pH neutral to protect delicate yarns. Plus, it can be used on every type of delicate fabric.
