Sticking my wet laundry outside on a hot, dry day falls right in line with my cheapskate, green-livin’ kind of style. Granted, in the Midwest, these days appear about three times a year. But heavens to betsy I don't miss out on an opportunity like this.
Towels and shirts are quick and easy to throw over a clothesline, or if you’re classy like me, the deck furniture. But after a day of drying outside, they have that Crunchy Feel.
Now...The Mister is quick to point out my dorky use of the word “crunchy”. “Food is crunchy. Fabric is not.” he would say. But you, my dear readers, know just what I’m talking about.
To magically turn my crunchy clean laundry into something we would actually put next to our skin, I rely on The Dryer. You know, that major appliance you have tucked away in a back room, probably stuffed full with some extra junk on top. Just five minutes in the magic machine and the transformation is complete. It’s the best of both worlds. Save scads of electricity, save scabs on your skin.
It isn’t every week that I get to impress you with my life-changing tips, but this might be one of them.
Goodbye, crunchy clothes. Hello, crunchy money. (And yes, dollar bills are “crunchy”.)
