These are the interesting thoughts swirling around in my mind.
There are lots of things different about the laundry here in Ohio. As I mentioned before my washer and dryer are downstairs in the basement. I actually have to make time to walk down there and DO laundry. (In TX the washer and dryer were right next to the kitchen = super convenient ) I'm good with the basement now. (a few weeks ago it made me tremble) Having a radio makes it all better. When I wash, dry and fold I dance around a bit. It isn't so bad after all, but different.
The weirdest thing about doing laundry here is the lint. I'm trying to figure out why the dryer produces so much lint here vs. back in Texas. It really is so strange. I have to empty the link tray with every single load. What is the meaning of this?
Another thing different is the water.
When I was a kid my mom would sort clothes into colors. I did that for a long time, but then I realized I didn't always have to sort by color. Some days I'd just throw it all in there and it would be fine. All the colors stayed vibrant. Now, since our move I am back to my mom's way. I have to wash the whites separate. Now, I feel like I need to bleach our whites, but using bleach has never worked for me. It seems like I'd pour bleach in and it just makes the stuff yellow. Anyway, so now I am on a mission to figure out this white situation. Do I just buy color safe bleach? Should I try to bleach my whites and maybe since the water is different it will work this time? Yep...these are my laundry issues.
Have you moved and noticed differences like these?
I am a laundry basket hoarder. We have laundry baskets in all our bedrooms. Since I have to carry the laundry up and down 2 flights of stairs I feel like I must be getting a workout. I love my laundry baskets much more than I did in Texas. I need them more than ever in a 2 story home. If the laundry basket isn't there when I need it I could quite possibly have a melt down. I'm not dramatic at all am I?
So, that concludes this edition of lets talk laundry. I'll let you all know how my whites turn out! ;)
