Laundry Challenge

I don't know WHY I want to do this, but this week I'm going to keep an officially tally of how many loads of laundry I do. I'm just curious, I guess.

By the way, I take back every nice thing I ever said about my Whirlpool Cabrio washer and dryer. The washing machine is no longer my favorite appliance, because it is seriously tangling my clothes. Every time I wash a load of jeans, it take me more than five minutes to untangle the legs and shake out the jeans for the dryer. It has done the same things with sweater sleeves. I've also noticed that the machine is balling up my clothes and getting unbalanced frequently.

I called Sears last week and they are letting me exchange the Cabrio for front-loading LG machines. I'm praying fervently that front-loaders will solve my laundry problems.

Now if they could just invent a machine that folds and puts away the clothes -- now that would be truly amazing.

I got my front loaders last year per your recommendation. I LOVE them (as much as you can love a machine that makes more work for you later...).

No tangles, one round on the dryer. Wonderful.

I wanted the front loaders, too, but our washer and dryer hookups are backwards and I thought it would be too difficult to change the hookups. But I've since figured out that it's relatively easy to swap the position of my washer and dryer using a telescoping vent. (All this agony because when we built the house, we designed it for a left-handed person. Not such a great idea after all!)

I'm just glad Sears is being semi-pleasant about it all.

They do---they're called "kids"! ;)

Are you a lefty, Chels? I never knew that. I may have to pick your brain, since Emma is, too.
