    1. A natural stain remover — it's non-toxic yet effective at dislodging stubborn stains without bleaching or discoloring the fabric.

    2. A handy detergent cup caddy to catch any drips and prevent a mess. Laundry itself is enough work — you shouldn't have to clean up afterward.

    3. A laundry add-on that'll brighten colors and whites, and remove stains. Plus, the tin is cute.

    4. A double hamper so you can keep clothes separated and ready for laundry day. It's also lined with two removable mesh bags for easy transport from the hamper to your washing machine.

    5. A wall-mounted ironing board holder with a storage basket for your iron and other laundry necessities.

    6. A cute and useful print to help you decipher all those confusing laundry care symbols so nothing is washed incorrectly again.

    7. An all-natural cleaning powder that'll banish those funky odors from your towels and linens.

    8. A hanging mesh sweater dryer so your favorite knits don't stretch out on regular drying racks or hangers. Just hook it onto your shower rod — it can hold up to 10 pounds of clothing.

    9. A set of wool dryer balls for an eco-friendly and chemical-free alternative to dryer sheets and liquid fabric softener.

    10. And a bottle of lavender essential oil to add to aformentioned wool dryer balls. It'll give your laundry a naturally fresh scent.

    11. Or, a couple of puffer fish dryer buddies that'll do the same thing as wool balls while looking extremely cute.

    12. A fancy wool and cashmere shampoo so you can wash precious sweaters/scarves/gloves/hats at home instead of relying on the dry cleaners.

    13. A gentle fabric wash for cleaning and prolonging the lifespan of your delicates.

    14. A cap washer to protect your favorite hat from losing its shape in the wash (or in your luggage).

    15. A laundry basket that can fold flat for storage when it's not in use.

    16. A hanger stacker so you can keep all the hangers neat, untangled, and ready-to-use for the next laundry day.

    17. A magnetic laundry guard for preventing stuff from falling behind your front-load washer and dryer.

    18. A clothes folder to make the task of folding laundry a lot more tolerable. It can be adjusted to accommodate thicker pieces like sweaters. You'll have a neat and uniform stack in no time!

    19. A tablet that'll leave your washing machine sparkling clean and odorless. The washer needs washing, too, you know.

    20. A set of washing balls so your clothes won't get tangled up in the cycle. They'll also help heavier fabrics (such as denim and cotton sheets) get a more thorough scrubbing.

    21. A hamper backpack for an easy way to haul a huge bag of clothes to the laundromat (if you're in college or live in an apartment that doesn't have laundry in unit). Plus, your hands will be free to carry detergent and other supplies.

    22. A down detergent designed to keep your puffer jacket clean and fluffy.

    23. A natural fabric softener that'll make your laundry smell fresh and feel fluffy without any icky chemical ingredients.

    24. A wine stain remover, because you shouldn't feel anxious about sipping on some Merlot while cuddling with your fave throw blanket.

    25. Dye-trapping sheets for mixed laundry batches so your white shirts don't come out pink because of one rogue red sock.

    26. A slim rolling storage cart to fit perfectly between a washer and dryer.

    27. A drying rack that'll provide ample hanging space and folds flat for compact storage. It's perfect for smaller homes.

    28. A rustic laundry sign might help single socks find their missing ~sole~ mates.

    29. Downy Wrinkle Release spray for people who don't have time to iron their clothes in the morning (or...for people who just don't own an ironing board).

    30. A set of mesh laundry bags (in assorted sizes) to protect your delicate garments from getting damaged in the wash.

    31. OxiClean laundry whitener + stain remover that'll restore whites to their original color and brighten other colors. It's chlorine-free and color-safe.

    32. An electric fabric shaver so you can rescue five-year-old sweaters that still spark joy but are starting to look a little worse for wear.

    33. A bottle of Grandma's Secret Spot Remover for eliminating pretty much any kind of stain, from grease to chewed gum (!!!).

    34. A handheld steamer to banish odor-causing bacteria and wrinkles. It'll make a crumpled old blouse look like a fresh purchase!

    35. A non-toxic ink remover that'll hold its own against permanent markers.

    You might even enjoy laundry day now!
