The Laundress Denim Cleaning Service

As lovers of fine overpriced denim know, hardcore denim fanatics don't wash their jeans. It's true, jeans wear better, last longer and look so much better if you abstain from traditional washing. But, what's a fashionista to do when her favorite pair of $400 jeans develop a stain or noticeable hem grunge? Enter The Laundress Denim Cleaning Service.

The Laundress, maker of all sorts of cleaners and accoutrements for your fine washables, has a mail-in denim cleaning service that will delicately cleanse your denim loves for a mere $20. The denim service method combines The Laundress Denim Wash and cleaning from the experts in laundering.

To take advantage of the service, you simply purchase the Denim Cleaning Service at The Laundress online site for $20 per pair. Then, you pack up your denim and send it via UPS, DHL or FedEx, with delivery confirmation. The denim team at The Laundress will then pre-treat, wash and steam your designer denim and mail it back to you, with delivery confirmation, free of charge.

I haven't tried the service personally, although it's definitely on my to-do list after the local cleaners practically ruined a pair of artfully distressed Current/Elliott jeans. The service is recommended by online purveyor of all things fashionable and expensive, Net-a-Porter. I tend to trust them.
