Patric Richardson a.k.a. “The Laundry Guy” on HGTV and Discovery +
When Patric was three years old, Santa brought him a toy washing machine fueling a passion that already presented itself whenever he helped his Granny Dude with her laundry.
He studied merchandising apparel and textiles at the University of Kentucky and then left for a career in luxury fashion at McAlpins, Neiman Marcus, and Nordstrom. Time spent in these legendary stores taught him that all clothing, regardless of price, can be cared for at home.
Richardson opened his designer vintage store, Mona Williams, in 2013 at Mall of America. The store carried a small, curated collection of fine laundry products completely changing his direction-into the world of laundry and clothing care.
Richardson started sharing his expertise at his often-sold-out Laundry Camps where he teaches people new and better ways to care for their apparel and home textiles. These camps sparked a revolution, prompting a book, “Laundry Love,” now in its fourth printing, and a television show, “The Laundry Guy,” on HGTV and Discovery+. Patric resides in St. Paul, Minn.
