Laundress, Heal Thyself

Corrective lectures are a frequent follow-up to the weekly wash sessions.

"Please don't forget to take the Kleenex out of your pockets before putting them in the dirty clothes."

"Rocks can really damage our washer...especially big ones."

"When the dryer gets hot enough to dry our clothes, it melts crayons."

Yesterday, when donning my black jeans, behold what I discovered bulging---and lint-ily emerging---from the back pockets...

Apparently someone was short-changed out of a potential pack of PopRocks on our last visit.

Tissues are the worst! I can be found grunting and groaning in the laundry room each week...Husband says "why don't you clean out the pockets first."

My reply

Why don't you do the laundry

Terra said...

OH 0- But I love it when I find MONEY in the dryer! I call it laundry money and it is MINE no matter who lost it.

I know the feeling about all that stuff in pockets. And it's all MINE. I've laundered a lot of money in my day.

And great work on the website! I'll check it out directly.

The shredded kleenex drive me nuts. But I have the same policy as Terra - all the change is MINE!

I'm sitting here nodding my head while reading this!! I can't tell you how many wadded up kleenexes I have found in the laundry and yes, even crayons too.

Have a happy Mother's Day! I hope you'll participate in the We Heart Art Contest/Giveaway!!!
