Ever forget to move a washed load of clothes to the dryer?
I have. At least once . . . .
Then . . . I left yesterday morning at 8:30 a.m. for Bible Study.
Then . . . I went straight from there to spend the day with my best friend (and meet her newly adopted boys).
Then . . . I spoke at an evening MOPS meeting.
Then . . . we took advantage of the Wednesday enchilada special at our favorite Tex-Mex restaurant.
Then . . . I drove an hour and arrived back home at 10:30 p.m.
Then . . . I helped count money for a school fundraiser first thing this morning.
And then . . . I took a sick kid to the doctor. (Thankfully, he doesn’t have the flu.)
Anyway, those “clean” clothes don’t smell so clean anymore. So I drew on the experience I gained in the years before I started a Laundry Day.
Y’know, the years when 6 out of every 10 loads of laundry had to be re-washed.
At least once.
The trick? Add vinegar when you run the load again. I don’t measure. I just do a once-around-the-washer pour.
I add another once-around if the musty smell is extra-strong.
Do you use vinegar in your washing machine? I saw a tip last month in All You magazine that vinegar can be used as a fabric softener!
