Patric Richardson HGTV Laundry Guy
Richardson is the host of HGTV’s Laundry Guy. In the show, he offers expert laundry advice and saves treasured items that come with heartwarming stories.
He revealed that his passion for laundry stemmed from his childhood. “When I was about 2-1/2 years old, I would hand clothespins to my Granny when she would put clothes on the clothesline, so I loved laundry then.”
He said that he would never question what his life’s purpose was when it comes to laundry because in the show, “there’s a woman who has a dress that her mother made—it was a party dress and she made it so that she could wear it to get married in but could continue to wear it,” he recalls to HGTV, while trying not to choke up in the process.
Her mother died when she was 6. So this dress was stained—first of all, you have to know that this woman’s workmanship was next level; couture level—and it was stained all down the front. And she said, ‘I don’t think you’re going to get it clean but I think you might get it better. I just want to know that I can preserve it.’ She was so earnest. She didn’t believe I was going to get it clean. I knew I was going to, but she didn’t believe it. And getting to reveal that to her is one of the top 10 experiences of my life. I just wanted it so bad, because how basic is that request: wanting to be able to remember your mother. I mean, I already loved laundry, but getting to do that was … that will go down as one of the highlights of my life.”
