The Ideal Hand Laundry proudly offers handmade soaps and housewares that run the gamut from the bizarre to the beautiful, with a focus on unique accent pieces, tableware, and vintage glassware.  

"I see stories in old things, and I love to bring them back to life in modern and interesting ways" says owner Heather Prince.  Born and raised in Atlanta and Philadelphia, Heather graduated from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1995 with a Bachelor of Arts.  Since then, she has lived and worked in beautiful places like San Francisco, Asheville, and Charleston, South Carolina, where her dealing and curating business began its roots.  In those places, Heather also mastered the craft of producing handmade, small-batch soaps using quality vegetable oils and pure essential oils.  Back in Philadelphia since 2003, she continues the creative and gracious tradition of The Ideal Hand Laundry.
