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?
