Windows 7: How do I put a clean Win7 back on my laptop without a CD?

How do I put a clean Win7 back on my laptop without a CD?

I bought a HP laptop almost a year ago, it had Windows 7 pre-installed. There is a lot of junk and who knows what probably slowing down my laptop, a lot of it was the crap HP installed. I'd like to wipe everything and a re-install of Windows 7, but It didn't come with a CD? How can I go about doing this?

Thanks,
