Kids know nothing tell adnohr I wear which ever sock comes out of the box, I wash when a pile of white clothes looks untidy and when a pile of socks look miserable. I never iron because I like crumpled clothes . Arthur is always telling me how to hang a shirt to make it look smart. So I just do it to please him at times. Well he did give me twelve shirts which he had hardly worn so he does not like to see them abused I suppose . He said they felt rough on his skin, he is getting fussy in his old age. Although he occasionally does a wash in my machine and I wonder why he does not use his own very superior one. I could go on about washing but, I always think of the old lady who used to walk 5 miles to wash a large families clothes (lazy folk) although it was by a boiler and a washing dolly , which you have never heard of, and red hands ,and pushing a pram winter and summer.

My wash day is typically Thursday. I do it once a week. I used to do it once every two weeks, but the shirts were accumulating too much to dry. I do not dry them in a dryer, instead hanging them on a shirt stand, I will call it.

I can totally relate! I need to wash everyday because of all the cloths we need for our cleaning business. I also have a BIG bag of unmated socks, most with no mates. The other day all my socks were dirty and I found 2 in my unmated sock bag that almost matched. Very helpful!

Hey - it's in fashion here now. Kids go around with different socks - never do I see my oldest rugrat with a matching pair, and his siblings? Well, it's monkey see, monkey do!

There are two possible solutions: Put those useless Gnomes to work, or just spread your laundry out on the lawn, sprinkled with a bit of Tide or some such. With all the rain we're getting, it'll  be clean in no time...

Every so often I find the dreaded tissue crumbs in the washer, no matter how well I check the pockets. And I have one of those washes where it's very deep and I'm not tall enough to reach to the bottom very well. And that's a good idea about giving the socks away that have lost their mate. I don't mind washing clothes, it's the dishes I hate to do, it's painful on my back.

Now you know how I feel - and I'm the one who leaves a tissue

in a pocket and forgets to check before tossing them in...  Makes me say bad words, like drat and ding-dong-dangit....
