My college freshman called and said he missed me and wanted to come home for a night. I understood the translation, "I have a boatload of laundry to do."
He came home proudly telling me he even was washing his sheets! (He's been in the dorm three, three weeks - Ewwww)
The next day when I go to take a shower, I wonder where all my towels went? Ah, yes he washed his sheets but left me the dirty towels and grabbed some clean ones.
With one still at home, I figured we had to go down my laundry list:
If you don't want it ruined, empty your pockets. Especially Lip Balm that melts in the dryer and you can't get the stains out of your clothes. If it does get ruined there is no complaining to the management. You snuck those pants into my hamper.
But you can leave money in your pockets. I love freshly laundered money.
Clothes around the hamper do not get washed, clothes in the hamper do.
If you tried it on and didn't want to wear it, it's still clean. Don't throw it on the floor for the dog to pee on.
You can reuse a towel if hung up properly. Don't shove it in a big ball on the towel rack. Remember this isn't a hotel. We can use towels more than once. And the argument that it touched your private parts isn't working. They were clean when it touched them.
If it goes into the wash inside out, it gets folded inside out. You can guess what's on that T-shirt.
Keep your socks together. I got overwhelmed by single socks to the point I just took a trash bag of single socks and gave it to Goodwill, let them deal with it.
You can wear your Jeans more than once. We don't work on a farm. Your father puts his jeans in the freezer to clean them. I'm guilty of washing mine.
Finally, you can use a computer, definitely use an iPhone. I'm sure you can figure out the washer and dryer.
Who used up all my laundry detergent?
