In The Wash was founded in 2016 with the goal of solving the UK’s cleaning and laundry dilemmas.
The site is managed by Laurence Smith, an online publisher with almost ten years of experience writing and editing content for the web. He launched In The Wash after seeing a gap in the market for a website sharing cleaning and laundry tips with a focus on UK-specific recommendations and information.
In The Wash shares useful tips and tricks to help you keep your home and your clothes clean and well looked after. We also research and recommend the best cleaning and laundry products on the market.
Since launching over five years ago, In The Wash has been quoted in several major publications, including Good Housekeeping and The Guardian.
Our goal is to be the most accurate, useful and clear source of information on the topics we cover. If you think any information on the site is incorrect or could be improved, please contact us and we will strive to fix it as soon as possible!
We don’t sell anything on this site, so our running costs are supported by advertising and affiliate commissions instead. For more details on this, please see the disclaimer.
