Introducing the New Dr. Laundry
Several months ago I heard from my old Clorox friend and colleague, Cristina, who was wondering if I wanted to potentially take over the “Dr. Laundry” role from Harold Baker, who was retiring in July. My answer was a giant Yes!
Even though I left Clorox to be a full-time mom several years ago, the laundry questions have kept right on coming from neighbors and friends. Like, “what to do about the ink stain on the slip cover left over from when the puppy chewed up the pen“? It seems that once people learn you work for Clorox in Laundry Product Development, they ask you all kinds of stain questions from the simple (oil stains on cloth napkins) to the bizarre (a bird dropping stain on my college roommate’s wedding dress during outdoor pictures before her wedding). I have always enjoyed helping people solve their stain problems, and now, the prospect of helping others on such a large scale is very exciting, and a little daunting! Harold Baker did an incredible job creating Dr. Laundry, and he will be difficult (if not impossible) to replace. I promise I’ll do my best to answer your stain questions and it’s great to know the team at Clorox is there to assist me when I need some extra stain fighting answers.
So let’s get started–send me your questions. If you have a picture of your laundry problem, send that along as an attachment, too. As they say, “a picture is worth a thousand words,” especially in describing a stain.
I am looking forward to hearing from you!
