Vanessa Willes founded Mangle and Wringer in 2012 to create traditional, non toxic cleaning remedies that would be gentle and safe, yet powerful enough to be really effective.
We are enormously proud that our products are made using the original recipes inherited from longtime housekeeper Bette Smith. At the heart of each product is the cold- processed soap that Bette learned to make as a child from her mother.
Bette’s wonderful cleaning remedies are the inspiration behind everything we do at Mangle and Wringer. But it’s not just her recipes we admire and recreate – her common sense ethos is one we aspire to as well.
