Does anyone else in the world have laundry as their nemesis? (Please say yes.) My mom is great at laundry, she always has been. She washes a load, hears the beep from three rooms away and jumps to dry it, fold it and put it away.
Me.....um.....not so much. I put in a load, forget that I did and still find it sitting there in the afternoon (or the next morning---ugh). Or the other story of my life is---do one load, put it in to dry, take another load out and put it on the loft couch and then let it sit there. And sit. And sit. Add another load on top. And rinse and repeat. ARghhhh...
Laundry and I are not quite friends yet.....but I have learned one thing that has made my life a little easier.
ALL WHITE TOWELS. AND BEDDING.
(not my picture....mine are a bit wrinkly at the moment so enjoy these beautiful ones)
But you might want to try it.....it's so much easier. They are easier to clean, easier to replace--white is white, and easier to get rid of one towel without messing up an entire set when one towel has lived its good little life.
I have white dishcloths (my mom's crochet-kind that I can't live without), all white hand towels, all white bath towels and all white bedding. And once a week, all the white towels get put into one big hot water wash with oxiclean (or borax) to bring them back to whiteness....and life is good again. (Not that they get folded right away....but hey, I'm trying.) And if they are really stained, then they go into a bleaching tub out in the sunny backyard. And I am always amazed at how white they get again.
Now. For me, it's back to the laundry......who someday may become my friend.
