High-end and designer clothes and luxury items for our home are for most of us a splurge we treat ourselves to now and then. These are investment pieces for your wardrobe and if you pay designer prices for designer clothes, shoes and accessories you surely want them to last, looking as good in the future as they do now.
I absolutely adore cashmere and subsequently noticed a line of luxury fabric care products and detergents, The Laundress, developed by Lindsey Wieber and Gwen Whiting. They should know their stuff – they were educated in Textile and Apparel Design and Management at Cornell University.
I live in a smallish town and I can find high-end goods here and of course online but fabric and clothing care items are not as easy to find in my town. Thankfully, many brick-and-mortar and online clothing boutiques that sell luxury apparel also carry the specialty fabric care items you would need to care for pricey purchases.

The Laundress Wool & Cashmere Shampoo is a way to keep cashmere looking good. Recommended: gently wash in cool – tepid water and lay flat to dry in its original shape. But by all means follow the care instructions on the label of your garment.
The Laundress has an assortment of products in their line including detergents, fabric fresheners, and stain removers. There are also these Stand Up canvas bags for the laundry room or closet worthy to hold all those fabulous finds.
