Laundry & Linens

You spend a lot of money on clothing and linens, so you want to launder them properly to ensure they continue to look new years after you take the tags off. We'll help you decode laundry cycles and learn which ones you can ignore. Buying a washer and dryer can be stressful: front-load or top-load? High-efficiency? Sanitize cycle? Let us help you work through all of the options and buy the best washer and dryer for you and your budget. Then, learn what effect water temperature has on certain fabrics and how to make sure your clothes are actually clean. Certain add-ins to the laundry can boost the washing power of your machine, and we'll tell you about a variety of options, even natural options that are just as effective as store-bought versions. Let us decode thread counts, percale and muslin and the rest of the jargon that comes with buying linens. Doing laundry is a necessity, so we want to make sure you have the best tools, tips and tricks to care for your laundry and linens.
