You may have a laundry room, but I have a laundreary room as in:
I made that sign a while ago. It's not that I hate doing laundry. I just don't find it all that interesting or fulfilling. I find it dreary. I've gotten better at it. I seldom have things shrink or colors run. I always check the pockets carefully. Cell phones are small, expensive to replace, and don't work at all after being agitated in sudsy water for 20 minutes. I shake each piece out before putting it in the dryer rather than grabbing the big ball from the washer and tossing it in the dryer. It was years before I figured that one out. I do love to iron, but nothing is going to take the wrinkles out of twisted synthetic material that has been in the dryer for 45 minutes.
I blame the appliance manufacturers for the laundreary problem. Laundry machines are boring. Where are the fun gadgets? Where is the music, video, touch screen? Why can't the detergents and softeners be dropped in every few months and dispensed automatically?
And timers! What are the manufacturers thinking?? Timers are boring at best. More often than not they give off some ear-shattering noise akin to the sound one would expect from a high strung ocean liner. Have the designers of these machines never heard any pleasant sounds that might attract us to the laundry room in a peaceful manner rather than in a frenzied rush to stop the horrific noise? How about a pleasant vocal recording that announces that the laundry is ready to be dried or folded? I think my dryer has the same sound device used in World Ward II air raid horns. Consequently, I don't use the timer and usually forget to take the clothes out until the laundry has cooled down and the wrinkles are set. It's a good thing I like to iron.
I guess my laundreary sign is going to stay until manufacturers give us something more innovative than a window in the front of the machine.
