This program is read by the author, and includes audio-exclusive bonus tips.

Patric Richardson, aka the "Laundry Evangelist,” reveals his revolutionary methods for cleaning clothes - and making laundry loads more fun.

Doing laundry is rarely anyone’s favorite task. But to Patric Richardson, laundry isn't just fun - it's a way of life. After years of running Laundry Camp at the Mall of America for thousands of eager learners, he's ready to share his tips, tricks, and hacks - bringing surprise and delight to this commonly dreaded chore.

Sorting your laundry? It's not all about whites and darks. Pondering the wash cycles? Every load, even your 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 smelly clothes? Richardson has a secret for freshening those too (hint: It involves vodka, not soap).

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 humor, real-life laundry stories, and lessons from his Appalachian upbringing and career in fashion.

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

Really enjoyed but...

I really enjoyed this book. It was such a beautiful diversion that motivated me to organize and do things to improve my laundry room. My only complaint is that as far as I can see the PDF did not include the stain list. I'd have much preferred getting the list of how to treat particular stains as opposed to recipes. After all we paid for the book too. I love Patric and other than that, I so enjoyed this read/listen.

THis is going to be a gift for people

Where has this been all my life and why does Patric's cleaning passion bring me joy? This is a book where you do need the actual book to use as a reference.

You show love through doing laundry well

If you love to do laundry, this book is for you. Patric does a wonderful job of telling his story of laundry love. It is charming, as well as instructional and informative. This book has given me the confidence that I can remove almost any stain and clean my clothes in a way that’s friendly to the environment.

I'll listen again!

I have the hard copy-love it and will refer to it often! Don't forget to check out the PDF if you only have the audible. Patrick is calm, soothing, insightful, fun and informative. I love and share his beliefs about serving others, having fun while you work and taking care of your clothes weather they are inexpensive second hand or brand new high end . I love that he honors the people in his life that nurtured, supported and influenced him. There is a wealth of laundry (and moral) knowledge in this book.

Joy Found In That Common Chore

This is an amazing book. I'm currently on my second listen. I restarted it as soon as I finished. Patric's performance is conversational which makes the listen that much more enjoyable, and quite honestly, rather soothing. (He could have a second career as an audible narrator) I feel much more confident in wearing some of my more expensive clothes now that....my clothes can no longer boss me around! I've thrown out all the toxic supplies and ordered what he recommends and am excited to begin playing in the laundry room.

Uplifting, fun and transformative!

This little book was a pure delight from beginning to end. I loved it so much that I am now ordering a hard copy to keep on hand! Patric’s reading of the audiobook added an extra special dimension to the information and stories! I highly recommend Laundry Love!
