THE WEATHER HAS TAKEN A TURN FOR THE WORSE AND FROM HERE ON OUT I’LL BE USING THE FOLDABLE CLOTHES RACK TO LINE DRY OUR LAUNDRY INSIDE!
I hate to say it but it’s that time of year again when our clothes are inside on the foldable drying rack. It’s been cold, rainy, and snow is predicted for next week here in Michigan. I’m thankful to have a method for drying inside without turning on the electric dryer. I have two of these racks and each one holds at least one load of laundry each. I don’t know why I don’t like drying our close in the standard dryer but I don’t. I prefer to line dry them outdoors but I make do in the winter months. It even helps add a little moisture to the dry air.
I feel like we Americans wash and dry our close too much and by doing that it weakens the fibers and we have to buy things more often. I don’t get my close actually dirty like my hubby does so I always try and wash mine in cold water and use a quick cycle. Speaking of washing close. I purchased a new Speed Queen washer last week and it will be delivered tomorrow. The warranty expires on my current washer December 1st and you know how that goes; the minute it no longer has a warranty things start to go wrong.
The last 3 washers I’ve owned were the new fancy type. You know the ones that do everything you can think of except get clothes clean. Well I’d had it and told hubby a few years back that the next washer I bought would be old school. I wanted to turn a dial rather than have a computerized menu bar and determine the amount of water that filled the drum.
What the heck is with these water saver washers anyway? It makes no sense you need water and soap to clean things and recycling the same dirty water just doesn’t work in my opinion. So I’m going back to a smaller drum and a washer without all the bells and whistles and this one comes with a 10-year warranty. Every person I know that has a Speed Queens says it will last 25 years plus. Now that’s the washer for me.
Our oldest sons house will be done here soon and he’ll be moving out so I’ll have even less laundry to wash. So for hubby and I it’s a good choice I believe. Who needs a washer that can make a call itself when it experiences an error code? Not me that’s for sure! If you know me I’m a laundry stalker according to my family. I like to know what it’s doing and how long each cycle takes. I never knew I was so obsessed with washers until they pointed it out (te-he). I sure hope I enjoy my new Speed Queen; laundry is my favorite chore!
