The Laundress is an eco-friendly line of detergent, fabric care, and home-cleaning products that take excellent care of you, the things you love, and the environment.
Intense cleaning involves three elements: water temperature (hot), detergent amount (more) and agitation (movement in the wash machine). Fabric, such as cotton, generally has a certain maximum shrinkage capacity so washing your favorite white t-shirt once in hot water will shrink the same amount as it would over multiple washes in warm.
Always reference what fabric you are washing to determine the proper water temperature to use. Cotton and linen are best washed with hot water, silk and synthetics are best at warm or tepid, and wool should always be cold washed.
Washing cycles are just as important as water temperature. Too much agitation even with cold water can shrink a wool sweater. Always use the delicates or woolens cycle when machine washing “delicates or woolens.”
