This isn't our first rodeo.

The idea for the Laundry Butler is one that dates all the way back to 1997 when creator, Bruce Scott, began his search for a smart solution to a common problem. After several revisions, Bruce was joined by long-term customers and co-creators David & Kim Henry who helped expand his vision to allow air-drying to accommodate all garment types.

Introducing the Laundry Butler: the product of over 20 years of hard work, dedication, and a passion for simple and effective solutions. Now, we're proud to offer this product to you via Kickstarter.

The Laundry Butler provides uncompromising quality at an honest price.

Despite its simple appearance, the Laundry Butler is made from a durable, high-impact polymer strong enough to provide 5x the support of a standard hanger, proving its ability to stand up to any and all air drying tasks for decades to come.

When it comes to the Laundry Butler, there's more than meets the eye. Its multi-functional telescoping arms extend to accommodate sleeves of every length, from t-shirts all the way to sweaters. Shoulder bumps be-gone!

The Laundry Butler also features one-of-a-kind collar stays designed to help build a perfect framework for reshaping all of your air-dried garments. These collar stays also double as drop supports for the garment rod, which can be used in conjunction with our Click-IT Clips to hang everything from pants to sports gear to delicates.

The compact, cascading design of the Laundry Butler allows you to save space by taking flat drying vertical and air dry multiple garments in the same space in which you would normally dry just one. Assemble, hang, and let the air provide the care!

Looking for different hanging options? No problem! We're also proud to offer both the wall-mounted InstaHANGER and our unique free-standing Laundry Valet; two equally-durable hanging alternatives that are compatible with the Laundry Butler system.

While the Laundry Butler has many features that operate to offer different benefits, they all work together to serve one purpose: giving you an effective and simple solution for convenient, air-dried perfection.

The first iteration of the Laundry Butler came to fruition nearly 20 years ago in Bruce's garage. With not near enough room to either flat dry his shirts or introduce a cumbersome drying rack into his laundry routine, Bruce set out to find a solution that would not only dry his shirts but also preserve them for years to come. With a dream, determination, and a little bit of PVC pipe, the first Laundry Butler was born.

It wasn't long after that when Bruce's innovative design began to catch on with others who faced a similar clothes-drying dilemma. After introducing the Laundry Butler to the public, Bruce was soon approached by two customers who shared a vision to improve a product that they had loved so much. After much deliberation, testing, and years of refining the perfect design, Bruce, David, and Kim have built a product that serves as a compact solution for air-drying your clothes, preserving their lifespan, and saving you money on expensive trips to the cleaners. Complete with collar stays, a garment rod, Click-IT clips, and more, the Laundry Butler is the perfect way to dry not only your shirts but all of the clothes in your closet.

Is this your first time using Kickstarter? No worry! Making a pledge to Mr. Laundry is as easy as 1, 2, 3!

Use this package at home or when you travel to remove pressed in wrinkles from the garments that have been packed in a suitcase or left lying around.  It works like a steamer only easier.  Just hang the garment, mist it with our superfine mister, and block out the wrinkles.  In less than 5 minutes it will be dry, shaped, smooth and ready to wear. 

This package is ideal for those of you who only have a few things you air-dry like sweaters & golf shirts. It also works great to add to other packages or to build the perfect number of hangers to fit your needs. The perfect package for your growing family or small & compact living spaces.

 This package works like the basic package, but it also includes everything you need to air-dry your delicates. This unit is a lot more functional than meets the eye, it is capable of drying 10 to 20 different garments at one time. Excellent package for campers, college dorms, or any small & compact living space.

 This package is perfect for the average home. It will easily dry anything from 5 shirts/sweaters to 30 to 40 different wearables or delicates while saving your space all at the same time.

 This package includes the DELUXE PACKAGE with added benefits.  The Laundry Mister can be used in conjunction with our hanger to remove wrinkles from clothing just like a steamer. The Early Bird Special offers its first 1000 backers double the amount of Click-it Clips as the Deluxe Package, our Laundry Mister, and entry into our Nordstrom $1000 wardrobe Giveaway! Act FAST!

 This package is for those of you who want a wall-mounted option that will collapse down out of the way when not in use.  It is the Basic Package, Essentials Package, and the InstaHANGER wall-mount all combined. If your household requires more drying capacity, add another Basic or Essentials Package.. the InstaHANGER can handle it!

This package is for those of you who want the maximum capacity of our Laundry Valet that can be used almost anywhere.  It is the Basic Package, Essentials Package, and the Laundry Valet tension pole all combined.  If you need more drying capacity, add another Basic or Essentials Package, the Laundry Valet can easily handle 20 or more of our drying hangers. 

 This package is 2 of our Deluxe Packages with an added discount.  They will come separately packaged so you can keep one and give the other as a gift if you'd like.

 This package includes 3 of our DELUXE PACKAGES with a more significant discount.  They will come separately packaged so you can keep one and give the others as a gift or keep them all!

This package includes 5 of our Deluxe Packages with the maximum discount.  They will come separately packaged so you can keep one and give the others as a gift to a dear friend, family member, or yourself.  Remember no one has the NEW Laundry Butler System so if you know someone who air-dries and is particular about their clothing, this is the perfect gift!
