A friend was just here and mentioned that she doesn’t wash any underwear with the kid’s school uniforms-and said it as if she wasn’t that particular about laundry…that was all she did special.
It got me thinking that maybe I missed a lesson in laundry somewhere? I mean I don’t really remember doing a lot of laundry when I was home (mom and dad-feel free to weigh in here) and college doesn’t count since I was paying per load so I certainly didn’t do anything that would send me scrambling for more quarters. But as a housewife (a job I’ve been at for over 14 years) I have never done anything extraordinary with my laundry.
Darks cold water.
Lights warm water.
Whites hot water but I normally mix them with lights since I don’t bleach things and/or it would be too small of a load to justify being on its own.
Maybe I have a load of towels here and there, but I normally throw those in with whatever color they go with.
Water, soap, clothes.
Sometimes: Water, clothes, soap.
Less often but still a possibility: Clothes, soap, water.
I started thinking that it really doesn’t matter if my family doesn’t care…and then I remembered that El Guapo started doing his own laundry about a year and a half ago so he could have more control over the way his clothes were being washed. Doh!
I just blamed his perfectionism and brushed off any guilt.
So I guess it’s just the girls and me-and they certainly don’t care-as long as I don’t turn their underwear pink-oh wait, that’s fine, too.
So what on earth do you do with your laundry that sets you apart? I’d love to know!
Who knows? Maybe I’ll try it…or maybe I won’t-it’s kinda nice that he does his own laundry.
