The Laundry Hag Commandments


The Laundry Commandments:

1) Thou shall separate thy whites (i.e. socks, undergarments) from thy colored clothes.
2) Thou shall not mix thy sheets with thy towels.
3) Honor thy (my) lint screen and keep it free of crud.
4) Thy workout clothes must be washed with thy towels not my new white top.
5) Empty thy pockets of gum, Chap Stick, baseball cards, wallets, keys, candy, Swiss army knives and all other pocket flotsam or thou will evoke the wrath of the Laundry Goddess.
6) Thou shall not mess with the water temperature settings without my permission.
7) Thou must remove clothes from the washing machine in a timely manner, i.e. before the plague of mildew sets in.
8) If thou are confused about liquid vs. powdered detergent, ASK!

I could easily imagine Neil working overtime to change “Laundry Goddess” into “Laundry Hag.” It’s a darn good thing I have an excellent sense of humor.
