Oh for the love...

Today was supposed to be D-Day. D as in "Deliver the Washer," or "Do the laundry." I say supposed to, because I'm out $539.10, and still have no working washer. Daron and I clearly differ on what constitutes a working washer.

2:21pm, Elisa calls home: Hi! Soooooooo. How does she look? Do I have a new washer?

Daron: Yes and No.

Elisa: What do you mean, yes and no? It's a simple question really.

Daron: Welllll. You know that thingy that hooks the hose to the wall? It's busted. I'm trying to figure out if it's something I can fix or not.

Elisa: (taking deep breaths) Do you understand the peril that we're in? Everything we own is dirty. I needed that thing to be hooked up TODAY.

Daron: You can wash clothes, you just have to wash them in cold.

Elisa: You can't wash clothes in cold, they don't get clean.

Daron: I washed everything in cold before I met you. You totally can do it.

Elisa: I gotta go.

Tide makes a new detergent that is for cold wash. It is supposed to make clothes washed in cold just as clean as if washed in hot. Can't verify its effectiveness, but maybe worth a try!

I wash our clothes in Tide oold water. It works perfectly and smells so good. The cold water lengthens the life of your clothes. That's why I can wear clothes from 10 years ago, although this may not be the best strategy for you because Kohls might miss their most frequent customer. Okay, I'm done with my commercial now:)

Cold water works fine! You just need a stream, one rock to place the clothes on and another to pound them with... think of all the money you will save :-).
