I wash clothes for five guys. I don’t check pockets. I don’t turn things right side out. I don’t iron.
In a word (or five ): Their clothes are low maintenance.
And my lazy methods are proving to be not too horrible. (Someone give my mom the smelling salts. Again.)
Seriously, as hard as four growing boys and a carpenter husband can be on clothes, we’re doing okay. Their clothes seem to last forever, and my seven year old wears things that have survived his three older brothers. Same goes for hubs.
And that’s a good thing, because mud, grease, and all kinds of evil find their way into pockets and the backs of shirts. Don’t ask me how.
We don’t buy expensive designer clothing, but we try to get items that are durable as well as stain resistant. Or at least those colors that are very forgiving of the mama who doesn’t check pockets, turn things right side out or iron. Once we find a product that we like, that works, that’s comfortable, we go with it.
