do they fold it? I hate folding.
Yes! They fold it for me! It's sheer luxurious bliss.No day spa has ever made me feel quite as pampered as having my laundry folded. :)
The only other thing that rates that high at the laundry mat is the ones that you can do your dirty clothes and have a cold beer during the process! Granted, you're not getting errands done but does it really matter when the beer is cold? :)Joe R.
Inconceivable! Supernatural entity or energy field of your choice bless America!
Just think, for only $1800+(plus a maintenance contract if you can't do the Boolean when the control module fails) you can be the proud owner of a state-of-the-art Home Laundry Combo. Add some plumbing, gas and electricity, plus 2-3 hrs/wk you weren't doing anything anyway, and you too can join the Triangle of Home Polluters, and give the Goreistas one more thing to blame you for.
But do they wash their hands?????? I like havin' all the laundriniage in my own basement; that said, at busy times, "folding" consists of laying things out in neat stacks on the laundry-folding table, period.
PS: throw another dadratted oil well on the fire for me, Al G, you bedwetting meemie! Ahhh, that's more like it.
That's cheaper than getting all my Hawaiian shirts done on hangers!I do laundry to heat the house, jimmy the dryer-door open and you're set to go!
I cant belive im writing this but at one time years ago i used to enjoy ironing now i hate it,i used to do all the ironing mine and the ex's even her bra straps so they did'nt twist and cut her she did all the folding and putting stuff on hangers now it will get ironed if it realy needs it otherwise No way.Drew UK
DirtCrashr - It's easier and the clothes dry more quickly if you just disconnect the dryer exhaust tube from the hole in the wall/ceiling/whatever, stuff a towel or something in there to keep the cold air out, and cover the end of the exhaust tube from the dryer with a pair of panty hose to catch the extra lint. Renders the house a trifle humid, but does the job without needing to jimmy anything, and doesn't take as long.
Having a stranger handle my underwear is a bit too weird for me.
I should note that I do my unmentionables the old-fashioned way, with a washtub and Woolite.I wouldn't want to handle some stranger's stanky drawers, so why should I expose some stranger to mine?
stingray, electric dryer--right?(This is important).
I'm just wondering why you would need to heat your house??But then, here in the valley of the sun, my laundry room is in my non-temp controlled garage. Those dryers just get all hot and stuff, makes the AC work too hard if it's inside.
comatus:That explains why I get so dizzy after the third load! ;)But yes, good point. Safety first, only heat your house with an electric dryer's exhaust.
Sting, I did it for years and loved it. You do learn to shop for fabric-softener sheets you really want the whole house to smell like ("April-fresh" had too many overtones for me). I have hydronic heat, so the extra moisture was most welcome, and a vent-box switch handle let me blow the heat out in summer, in in winter. In the event, though, it turned out to be an expensive humidifier, and we changed to a gas appliance that does not offer the option. When you notice the drop in the electric bill the first month, you know you chose right.The only way a household of 3 justifies the expense of home laundry is if you work out daily, or have dusty oily work and hobbies, so bathe more than once a day (and use many large towels). Mileage varies of course: in some cities, laundry service is very expensive, and dry cleaning OMG.
...By hand in a washtub, Tam? Gollee! I am so totally gonna have to stop sellin' mine on eBay.
That's the way washing cloths was handled when I was growing up. The Mother would take the bags of dirty clothes to the local laundry and pick it up folded and wrapped in brown paper the next day. Stuff that needed ironing was handled by the cleaning lady who came in once a week - the day after laundry day.emdfl
No, no, Roberta, don't ruin my whole weekend.
