Publisher's Summary

'Look after your laundry, and your soul will look after itself.' (W. Somerset Maugham)

Doing laundry is rarely anyone's favourite task. But to Patric Richardson, laundry isn't just fun - it's a way of life. 

Sorting your laundry? It's not all about whites and darks. Pondering the wash cycles? Every load, even delicates, should be washed using express or quick-wash on warm. Facing expensive dry cleaning bills? You'll learn how to wash everything - yes everything - at home. And those basically clean but pongy clothes? Richardson has a secret for freshening those too (hint: it involves your drinks cabinet). 

Changing your relationship with laundry can also change your life. Richardson's handy advice shows us how to save time and money (and the planet!) with our laundry - and he intersperses it all with a healthy dose of humour, real-life laundry stories and lessons from his career in fashion. 

How to Love Your Laundry will make you wonder why you ever stressed about ironing, dry cleaning or (god forbid) a red wine spill on your new shirt. No matter the issue, Richardson is here to help you make laundry miracles happen - wrinkles and stains be damned. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Critic Reviews

"A joy to read." (You Magazine)

"Move over, Marie Kondo, it's all about washing not tidying in 2021 and it's down to one man - Patric Richardson." (The Times)

"This slim volume, its breezy pages of tips and anecdotes, stories and, in the back, recipes, is a lovely salve. One would be very fortunate, I think, to be Richardson's friend or neighbour, share his optimism and joy in life's seemingly small things." (Washington Post
