This is the way we wash our clothes, wash our clothes, wash our clothes…Remember that old nursery rhyme? It certainly ran through my head when I saw how a friend dealt with her laundry last Monday.
“So, that’s your laundry bag?”
Imagine my surprise last Monday when I came down the stairs to find an overstuffed pair of jeans.
“Oh, sure,” my friend answered. “I just stuff a shirt in to seal each leg, put smaller items like T-shirts and underthings in, then top it off with another pair of jeans or a shirt and toss it over the banister to the ground floor. Everything stays in. I can even sort by colors if I have enough pairs of pants. It’s easier than the laundry bag or basket, and I don’t have to have a place for the basket or bag. I just pop everything into the washer, and then lay it onto the floor dryer on the sunporch to dry.” Her laundry room is really a closet off her kitchen, so I could appreciate her space-saving cleverness!
It’s certainly making me rethink my traditional laundry basket! And anything that makes laundry day easier is certainly a plus.
