Forgive Me, I Was Unclear
When I said yesterday that I missed my washer and dryer, what I meant was, I miss my high efficiency, front-loading, runs-a-load-of-laundry-in-more-than-10-minutes washer and my matching-large-capacity-dryer-whose-automatic-drying-sensor-actually-works.
We did pick up a used W/D pair from a local garage sale. I took a picture of the washer. Does it look familiar? Of course it does! Everybody’s mom had one in the early 1970s.
Which means that I’m washing our clothes in a 30+ year-old machine. One that figures that if you get the clothes wet, rinse them, and spin them out under 10 minutes, you’ve done your job. I think I’m going to start lying to the machine and tell it that every load I’m washing is HEAVILY SOILED. Because then it might actually wash them for a reasonable amount of time.
And let’s not even talk about its partner in crime (the dryer that thinks that a 10-minute* tumble is the way to a lady’s heart).
*What is it with these two and ten minutes?
