Clothing changes with the times, so maybe the way you clean your clothes needs to change, too. We’ve found five new products that will make your laundry look cleaner, last longer and more efficient.

1. The Laundress Wool & Cashmere Shampoo

Here’s a smart way to wash some of your “dry clean” items right at home – The Laundress Wool & Cashmere Cedar Shampoo is designed to safely clean your wool, cashmere, merino, mohair, blends and more. It’s ideal for sweaters, scarves, hats, down clothing and outerwear. Even use it on bedding, pillows, and throws. It preserves the natural lanolin oils to help keep yarns soft. This highly concentrated formula is good for up to 32 washes. And it smells amazing, with a scent that combines cedar, sandalwood, orange and rose. Cedar, by the way, helps to naturally repel bugs and moths, so it’s handy for outdoors, too.

2. Wool Dryer Balls, Pack of 6

Here’s something you didn’t know you needed: Wool Dryer Balls. These natural fabric softeners are a healthy, chemical-free, organic alternative to liquid fabric softeners and dryer sheets. And, they’re much gentler on your clothes than the plastic hedgehog dryer balls you may have seen on TV. They’re made of soft, 100% felted New Zealand wool. And aside from saving you money on liquids and sheets, they also reduce appliance usage and electric bills by shortening drying time by up to 25%.

3. Puracy Natural Stain Remover

Stains on our clothes are unavoidable. But, that doesn’t mean they can’t be removed. Especially if you’re using Puracy Natural Laundry Stain Remover. They claim to be the most powerful stain remover guaranteed or your money back. Why so confident? They use six plant-based enzymes to safely remove any type of stain. That means it’s tough on grass, berries, blood, sweat, oil, pasta sauce, red wine, mud, cosmetics and more. It’s safe on dark colors and delicates, too. And, the natural ingredients are hypoallergenic, gluten-free, non-toxic and non-bleaching. Plus, Puracy is biodegradable, vegan and certified cruelty-free.
