Details on This Episode

Kristyn Van Ostern has a background working on political campaigns and in finance, and when doing a deep dive into how her time was being spent, discovered a need and a strong desire to outsource laundry. But when no easy and long-term options presented themselves, she took charge and Wash Street was born! In our conversation, in addition to entrepreneurial advice, Kristyn offers valuable laundry advice too. Plus, did you know that there are controversial folds? Fascinating stuff.
