Mom’s Laundry Rules

Dirty clothes:
Do not leave ANY dirty clothes in the laundry room unless they are in the sorter. This includes towels.

Single items:
All items must be singles; no double t-shirts or boxers inside of shorts.

Towels:
A towel is used on a clean body, and thus does not get very dirty…SO…you may use it numerous times before throwing it in the laundry.

Note: the laundress will now only wash 1 towel per person per week. Any others will be returned to you in the condition you sent it.

Pockets:
Check all pockets before you put dirty items in the laundry. Cell phones, money, pens, belts, and love notes will become the sole property of the laundress.

Dirty clothes:
Clothes that are folded or still have the crease marks on them are not to be considered “dirty”. Just because you don’t want to put them away doesn’t mean I want to rewash them! I think Goodwill would love to have these items.

Folded clothes rule:
When those clean clothes miraculously appear in your room, graciously thank the saintly person who lovingly placed them there and PUT THEM AWAY! (in drawers, folded).

Note: Failure to do this in the future will result in a generous contribution to Goodwill. Again, they’ll really like your stuff!

If you do happen to feel the whim to do a load of laundry, you MUST first fold whatever is in the dryer. DO NOT leave it unfolded or jammed into a teensy laundry basket. And do not leave your clean/semi-clean/dirty clothes in the laundry room for more than ½ day, disrupting the usual flow of laundry.

Note: Laundry left in the washer, etc. may be subject to hot drying.
