Ten on Tuesday: Things I Learned From not Having a Washing Machine

I'm not sure if I've mentioned this at all, but a few weeks ago our washing machine broke and we were left without one for quite a bit longer than I would have liked! However, I am the type of person to try and put a positive spin on everything, so in that vein I'd like to present you with:

  1. Washing clothes in the bathtub is lots of fun for the kids, but not so much for mom. It also doesn't really get things very clean.
  2. A potato masher makes a great agitator when you decide to try washing clothes in the kitchen sink.

  1. The kitchen sink works much better than the bathtub.
  2. Drying racks make attractive living room decor, especially covered with socks and underwear.
  3. Laundromats smell much better on the outside than on the inside.
  4. We own a lot of clothing!
  5. Broken washer + Potty training = Lots of laundry in the sink (see #2...literally!)
  6. It only takes two loads in the new washer/dryer before I started finding mulch and rocks inside.
  7. Our bathroom is not large enough to hold three weeks worth of laundry and still be able to navigate through, but my new washer is big enough to go through that much laundry in about 5-6 loads!
  8. My friends are awesome!
