Monday Madness

  1. Do you do your own laundry or do you send it out? I do my own. I sent mine out… once, or rather I dropped it off at the laundromat. It was totally worth it that one time, but only because there was so much and I was so busy. I actually don’t mind doing laundry (just the hassle that it’s been in my last few places to live, having to go down into the basement, etc).
  2. Do you laundry at your home or a laundromat? At home, in our ghetto basement. A couple times the dryer has been broken and I’ve resorted to air-drying, and once the washer was broken for such a long time that I brought my laundry to ‘s house.
  3. Are there certain articles of clothing that you need to have dry-cleaned on a regular basis? I have a few dry-clean-only items, but I don’t take them in very often. They’re pants. How dirty do they get? More of a hassle are the hand washables that do need to be washed often.
  4. How often do you do laundry? Is there a certain day of the week that you consider “laundry day?” Nope. I do my laundry when I need to or when I have the time to. Sometimes it’s because I’ve run out of khakis or whatever, but usually it’s just “time.”
  5. Do you iron your clothes as you pull them out of the dryer or do you wait until just before you wear the clothing to iron? I’ve done both. Right now, I don’t have very many clothes that need to be ironed, so it’s on an as-needed basis. I prefer to iron right out of the dryer, since it’s rare that I would have enough time in the morning to iron before getting dressed.
  6. Do you hang your clothes outside to dry or do you dry them in a dryer? Dryer. Unless the dryer is broke, or it’s really nice outside, or… yeah. dried our clothes on the line whenever possible, and I really don’t like the stiff feeling that line-dried clothes have. Sad.
  7. Do you own things that need to be hand-washed or do you try to avoid buying things that you can’t wash in the washing machine? No, I have hand-washables. I wish I didn’t, but it’s been harder to avoid lately.
