Gentle Laundry


A laundry guide for grungy bike folks and incurable DIYers.

24 pages of research about the history and chemistry of laundry---paired with practical advice about laundry routines and products. Optimized for apartment dwellers who contend with piles of smelly bike clothes.

"Most advice about how to do laundry is pretty dogmatic--if anyone taught us at all, most of us learned about laundry as a black-and-white, do-and-don't, right-and-wrong chore. This seems less useful than framing laundry in terms of history, basic chemistry, and textile science. Then, we can pick laundry routines that are practical for our individual personalities, space, and circumstances. We can also decide when it's a priority to use "gentle laundry" practices--habits that extend the life of our clothes."
