Ten on Tuesday Is Fresh and Clean

So yeah, once again I’m doing a meme. On the wrong day. Whatever, at least I’m blogging. Which is the reason for the meme because nothing else is holding my interest long enough to write about so…

1. Do you do laundry all at the same time or a load here and there?

I used to do it all at the same time when we had to pay with quarters because it was just easier to get 4 rolls and bang it out, but now that we have a washer & dryer in our apartment I do it when I get around to it.

2. What kind of detergent do you use?

The soapy kind.

3. Do you use fabric softener?

Yup, sometimes.

4. Do you use dryer sheets?

Nope, not as environmentally friendly as a reusable ball.

5. Do you iron your own clothes or take them to a cleaner to get pressed?

Okay, this is just funny. Iron? Cleaner? The only time I pull out an iron is when I’m sewing and need to get the fabric out of the ball it got shoved into when I smushed it into the drawer. The only time I go to a Cleaner is when I’ve got an especially difficult situation to tackle and Bonnie is on her way home from work.

6. Do you like heavy starch or light starch?

People who only wear cotton t-shirts and sweatpants, or other assorted cotton bottoms like jeans, don’t really have to worry about starch.

7. Do you wash all your laundry at once or separate it?

Well my washing machine isn’t that big so yeah a load at a time. That’s what you’re asking right?

8. How do you separate it? By people or by colors?

I’m suddenly feeling very prejudicial toward my poor clothing.

9. What clothes get hung up and what goes in drawers?

As much as possible gets hung up but hanging socks & undies would just be silly.

10. Do you use plastic, wire, or wooden hangers? Do they all match?

NO WIRE HANGERS!!! Okay, sorry, had to bust out a little quote on that one. If you know the movie I’m impressed. Some wood, some plastic. Usually whatever hanger the clothes came on when I bought them. That should tell you where I shop for most of my sweatpants.

Be sure to visit Roots & Rings if you want to play along on Tuesdays or whenever. Last time I posted one was May so it’s not like anyone will be beating down your door to participate.

Haha... had to laugh at #5. When I worked, I ironed every morning. In the last 3 yrs since moving up here, I've had the iron out maybe 3 times. :)

The hanger things gets me! I was always all plastic all the way (except I'd use wood for heavy coats when I had them), until I married a guy who insists on Joan Crawford's weapon of choice for all his shirts, and heavy plastic for all his pants. We now have virtually every type of hanger represented in our closets.

In regards to #5 - who the heck is Bonnie?????

That movie freaks me out!
I only get out the iron when I sew too, which isn't often.

I'm with Maine-y-ac - I totally don't understand the last sentence of #5; must be a generational thing!
Love, Mum

Mum & Sue the line in #5 -- its a reference to the movie "Pulp Fiction" :-)

I knew you'd all know #10!

Laundry's never been my favorite chore, in truth I can't say as I have a favorite chore ... if I did then it wouldn't be a chore would it ?

I often wonder how many people still use starch. My Mom used it on well over half the stuff she ironed when I was growing up, but I don't think I've worn anything starched, even dress shirts, in well over 20 years now.
