Laundry Swap!! (Part 1)

by D.J. 

Just a quick post to share how psyched I am about Laundry Swap!!

A big part of why I got into slow laundry was to learn more about my own clothes. But that doesn’t mean I don’t want to learn about other people’s clothes, too.

That’s just what Laundry Swap! lets you do. Once you sign up, you’re assigned a swap partner. You mail them your dirty laundry, and they mail their dirty laundry to you, and you’re each responsible for washing the other person’s laundry and sending it back. Believe it or not, this is a free service! (Except for postage.)

Cate and I just signed up, and we can’t wait to see what kind of partner we get. Maybe it will be a Tibetan monk who sends us his robe! Or a Northern California nudist’s beach towel! Or a Kenyan teen who is wearing the H&M pants that I donated to Salvation Army last year! Stay tuned.

This package of dirty laundry smells like friendship!




  1. I really like this. I guess you would not only find out about other clothes, but also other people’s obsessions about cleanliness or other bad habits. It could be a very aromatic experience.
