Nothing messes up your bedtime routine quite like sliding under the covers, getting comfy, then realizing that you’ve left laundry in the washer. Worse yet, it’s laundry that requires ‘care’. There’s no leaving it in the washer to mold or just putting it all in the dryer. Nope, as we’re getting older, more and more of our clothes require special procedures that allow them to hold the ideal shape that our our own bodies can’t produce anymore. So, I got out of bed, went all the way down two flights of stairs, and then tossed stuff in the dryer for two minutes, stretched, smoothed, and hung it up. Stupid teacher clothes.
Here’s the high-tech laundry system in the basement. It consists of several conduit rods bolted to the wall, hangers, and a fan I got from my grandpa. Back off, NASA – it’s patented!
