Life is messy and stains happen, but laundry expert Patric Richardson proves that hope is not lost for cherished items once considered unsalvageable in the new discovery+ series The Laundry Guy.

Available to stream Wednesday, March 31, the series follows Patric as he listens to clients' meaningful stories behind irreplaceable pieces, from wedding dresses and baby blankets to stuffed animals and vintage coats, and then carefully restores the items to mint condition. The result is grateful clients who are overwhelmed with emotions that run the gamut from joyful relief to exuberant appreciation.

The first episode also will air on HGTV on March 31 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

An entrepreneur and author, Patric gained national recognition for his sold-out "laundry camps" that teach his unique approach to cleaning and caring for garments. In each episode of The Laundry Guy, he shares his signature tips and tricks, do-it-yourself hacks and real-life takeaways, from folding a pesky fitted sheet to making a delicious cocktail.

"Clean clothes are a privilege," says Patric. "While the methods have changed, some things never will. We wear our lives' stories — from first dates to wedding days to bundles of baby joy. When it comes to stains and the stories behind them, everything comes out in the wash."

Throughout the season, Patric brings new life to his clients' most precious possessions, including removing stains from a decades-old denim three-piece suit and cleaning a 1930s-era child's coat and hat.

He also provides solutions for other common problems with garments, such as removing stains, reviving fading colors and treating the most delicate fabrics without sending them to the dry cleaners. In addition to mending the pieces, Patric offers families the expert knowledge and tools they need to preserve them in the future.

"I always say you do laundry for the people you love," added Patric. "Laundry is a kind of love language. It's a privilege that I get to wash these things for my clients."

Fans also are invited to connect with the series across the discovery+ digital platforms at discoveryplus.com and via @discoveryplus and #TheLaundryGuy on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. Fans also can connect with Patric (@laundrypatric) on Instagram and Twitter.
