Before there was a TV show, and before there was a book, Patric Richardson loved laundry.  When he was barely 3 years old, Santa brought him a toy washing machine, fueling a passion already inside him and presenting itself when he helped hang clothes on the clothesline or fold the sheets with his beloved Granny Dude.

Patric started sharing his expertise at his much talked about, and often sold out, Laundry Camps, teaching people new and better ways to care for all of 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 has been featured in both local and national media including  Live with Kelly and Ryan, the Washington Post,  Better Homes and Gardens, Good Morning LA, the Wall Street Journal, NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, The New York Times, WGN, Twin Cities Live, the Pioneer Press, GMA3, Martha Stewart Living, The Tamron Hall Show, and internationally with the BBC, The Globe and Mail and Die Welt.
