So school approaches – and with it the dreaded return of the laundry pile. I love the summer months, with its limited washing of shorts and tees – yes, even in the ‘summer’ we can expect in good ole Blighty.
The trouble is – I’m a lazy laundress. I am.
I’ll separate whites and coloured. Mostly. But term time the uniform all gets bunged in together – grey trousers, red jumpers and white polo shirts. Whist shirts which inevitably become chewing-gum-coloured before too long.
Now I use these handy little sheet things from Dr Beckmann. And the handy little sheet thingy comes out of the machine all grey and chewing-gum-coloured. My whites? they stay white. As do the white stripes on Pink’s favourite top, and the white parts of The Husband’s favourite blue and white striped top.
And me? I’m happy with anything that costs less than £3, totally works AND aids my inner Lazy Laundress.
