I've been trying to get caught up on my laundry.....and yes, matching socks with their mates was my challenge yesterday. I swear, my husband's sock drawer looks like a sock orphanage! I'm still working on that.
My other laundry challenge is always in dealing with the delicate items that require special care. The ones that say, "hand wash only, lay flat to dry," or "line dry." (I don't have any Dry Clean Only clothes left to my name.) These are mainly lingerie items, but sometimes sweaters or silks carry a 'tude as well.
Part of the problem is that I'm always WEARING my favorite bra and therefore, can't part with it for the length of a laundry cycle. And other delicate items that I CAN part with end up staying on the bottom of the clothes hamper, cycle after cycle, because I don't have time to hand-hold them through the cleansing process. They're such divas, they think they deserve the perfect laundry experience.
Today's Small Thing is to treat these divas to their own personal spa. Set the wash machine to "delicate" so they know they are being coddled, or give them a massage in warm sudsy water until they are refreshed.
Then line dry, lay flat, or toss into the gentle dryer cycle. These gals might be divas, but they know how to work it when they need to. I guess we can baby them a little.
POINTS: 40 for pampering your delicate divas - the ones that don't think they should have to rub shoulders with the commoners in the wash machine.
Do you have Dry Clean Only items? Gather them up and take them to the dry cleaners the next time you are out!
