The Laundry Alternative Story

The Laundry Alternative was founded in 1999, when CEO Corey K. Tournet came across a machine called the WonderWash while living in a small apartment far from the nearest laundromat. He started to sell the portable washing machine and discovered a demand for compact laundry appliances, and the business grew rapidly from there.

Today The Laundry Alternative stocks a big selection of compact washers and dryers, but we continue to set the bar high on what we will stock, often turning away products that don’t meet our criteria of quality, safety, and cost-efficiency.

Thanks to the Internet we now sell to customers all over the world, and our small washer and dryers have been featured in the New York Times, the San Francisco Chronicle, and many other media outlets.

And as the demand for resources grows and more pressure is put on the environment, we like to think that – in our own small way – The Laundry Alternative is giving people a better way to do their laundry, while reducing their household footprint as well.
