Love Post #1~~ Clean Laundry...


Okay, before you wonder why I have listed laundry above all else...please let me explain that I have been DOING laundry non-stop for 2 days. Our dryer stopped heating. We need to get it looked at. Thankfully, we had another dryer in the garage that was here when we started renting. I kept thinking how it was just in the way, now I am glad it was there! Anway, I've been playing catch up...you know how it piles up if you turn your back on it for a second!
I love to do the laundry. I LOVE to fold laundry. If we have a blog challenge where we are supposed to post about the things we HATE...well, then Putting Away laundry would be on THAT list. LOL

I just love the feeling of getting the clothes clean and folding them just the way I like them. I am very particular about how my towels are folded. I'm sorry, but I get this from my mom. I used to fold them the way I learned when I worked for Pacific Linen during summer one year in college, but they won't fit as nicely in my closet, so now I don't.

Oh! Fabric softener. I know, I know. They say it's not good for your clothes, wears them out, blah, blah, blah. Doesn't matter. Love for my clothes to smell like Mountain Rain, Spring Breeze, Citrus Island or currently it's Morning Sun. Doesn't that sound delightful? It must be Suavitel brand, too.

I love giving one of my kids a hug and then getting a whiff of the softener. Mmmmm... I love it when I walk up to my front door and can smell the drier going (vent is at our front door). Reminds me of whenever I go to my friend Vicki's house. She has 7 kids and her drier is always going. We walk up to the front door and are welcomed with that fresh laundry smell. Might as well call it a Hug In A Bottle!

Well, first, "HI!".
Second, I have my 10 things I love that start with T picked out, I am working on the post!
Third, I struggle with putting away the clean laundry, too! I wonder why that is.....

And when you're done at your house, you're more than welcome to come to my house and get caught up on my laundry...it's definitely NOT on my love list. :-P

I too love clean laundry, I don't mind any of it, EXCEPT putting it away, HATE that part!

I've seen this brand, but have never bought it, maybe I'll give it a try next time. (Love my Gain & Downey) Which is your fav scent?

Our dryer did the same thing just before Christmas. It turned out that we just needed to vacuum all of the lint out of it. It worked again after two days of just running it on cold air.

The Love of laundry is one I can't relate to. But I do love the fresh scent of clean laundry.

Hope your having a great week.

Clean laundry is one of my favourite smells, too. I don't mind any of the laundry work except for ironing - that is the ONE thing I'd much rather never do again.

I'm particular about our towels, too. To fit them into my cupboard they have to be rolled one certain way. When I have help from loving family members, I have to bite my tongue when they don't do it just right! :-)
