Re: Last time you had something dry-cleaned?
Damn right. Garments that can't stand up to machine washing deserve to die. It's Laundry Darwinism!
I also don't believe in segregating my laundry. I just throw the white things and colored things in one big washload and let the clothes sort it out for themselves.
Laundry cage fight!
I do separate lights from darks out of habit. I do wear white oxfords everyday for work, or a blouse of linen or cotton, always white (creature of habit, remember?) so I do like them to be crisp looking.
Just one woman; doing what I can, with what I've got, where I'm at!
