"I believe you should live each day as if it is your last, which is why I don't have any clean laundry, because, come on, who wants to wash clothes on the last day of their life?" - unknown

There's a line in Die Hard: With a Vengeance where Jeremy Iron's character states that something is happening due to the "gullibility of the New York Police Department"...(I admit it, I am addicted to the first three Die Hard movies...something that definitely falls under the heading of 'shame inducing guilty pleasure').

I mention this, not as part of a confession of movie-related sins, but because that specific line kept running through my head when I was confronted by the picture of a bottle of APC's Fine Fabric Care suds, a clothing cleanser created in collaboration with Aesop.

Now, as you may know, when I'm not watching bad movies I get a certain amount of harmless joy from hand-washing clothing (although, perversely, not dishes...as I mentioned earlier). My detergent of choice for this somewhat subdued thrill is Woolite which, at around $6 a bottle, has prolonged the life of many a sweater and shirt in the Hebden household. Which is why I mentioned the "G" word...for, at $35, a bottle...even though the packaging is far superior and the blend of Petitgrain, Lemon and Cedarwood probably smells lovely...can it really be that much better?

    It does sound lovely, but maybe one of the Dr. Bronner's liquid soaps could work as a substitute? I want to get a bottle of the lavender scent for my sweaters.
