The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me; Your love, O Lord, endures forever ~ do not abandon the works of Your hands. Psalms 138:8


I think I have finally got a handle on the laundry~it's taken over 30 years~but I think it's under control!
I have had friends who put me to shame~and you know who you are! The one who LOVES to iron. Or the one who every morning gets up at some un-Godly hour and the first thing she does is put on the coffee and put a load of laundry in~her laundry is folded and put away before I've had a chance to brush my teeth!
But I still LOVE fresh laundry~all folded and clean.
And I LOVE to bleach my whites. I have always, every so often collected all the whites in the house~clean or dirty~and done a bleach day. Towels, facecloths (I buy the big package of white ones at costco~they're great!), socks, teatowels and dishcloths. I soak them in a HOT, STRONG solution of bleach water for a few hours, then I do a regular hot wash.
Then I take some of my colored stuff that's looking dingy and carefully bleach them, too. I have yet to find a product that works like bleach~and for me, I can't live a bleachless life.
Somehow it makes me feel like I have accomplished much if my towels and Bob's socks are really white.
Do you have any great laundry tips?
Well, if I don't win a prize for the "Most Random Post" I'll be mighty disappointed!
~Blessings to you and may all your laundry be clean and folded~

A great post and one that's dear to my heart!! My biggest laundry issue is that I hardly ever have enough of any one type to do a full load so, in an effort to be green, I'm sometimes guilty of mixing darks with lights *gasp*. However, in just a few days I'll be in baby-laundry heaven!
