Thanks to me, most of you already know that my BF is terrible with laundry so I do all the washing. My love for over-sharing has also made most of you aware that BF has a habit of wearing things once (once meaning any stretch of time between twenty minutes to two days straight) before tossing them in – OK, in the proximity of – the hamper.
I do all the laundry because I’ll actually take the time to separate darks or lights and use the different settings on the washer or dryer. I also do all the laundry because then I can toss clothes that are still “pretty clean” to me (meaning those that have been worn in a climate-controlled, splatter-free zone for a period of less than one work day) straight into the dryer with a sheet to "refluff" them for another wear.
I certainly do this pseudo clothing "spin cycle" with my own clothes. Skirt and top worn for a four hours where I pretty much sat in front of my computer? Tumble, maybe iron, then hang it back up, it is good to go. Sweater I may have worn for two hours before deeming it was too warm and tossing in my car for the rest of the day? May just get folded again and replaced straight back into my drawer. Dry clean clothes – I may very well wear them again (and maybe again - and maybe ...) dependent on condition after each wear.
Does BF know that I don't automatically wash everything he's already touched? I don't think he can tell once everything is freshened, flattened and folded or hung. Plus as far as I know, he doesn't read the blog, so he'll never know, bwahah- oh, not a bwahah-worthy moment?
Now I am assuming this is pretty normal behavior, but I’ve never asked before, so are you gals reading along and mentally nodding, asking for where the big “So what?” is? Or are you instead kind of grimacing at the monitor hoping you’ll never be unlucky enough to run into me and grubbies in a dark alley?
How do you keep your clothes fresh between cleanings? Or am I just naively a dirty person and clothes need to be laundered after each individual wear?
