    OK..can you say GROSS!!! Who had any idea that those awful bugs lurked in something that CLEANS your clothes! Ewwww. Thanks for the link to the other post, I will now be cleaning and disinfecting my washer this! Fortunately for me, I have a new washer and not an old crusty one (such as was described in the article). Maybe I should just wear disposable…I don’t have time to go inside the house to wash my hands before I transfer clothes to the dryer! Thank God for good immune systems..LOL!

    Loved the old blog and am loving the new one 🙂

  2. After reading that article, no joke, I went straight to my washing machine and cleaned it. The washing machine was the last place i’d ever think germs would lurk!

    I’m thinking:

    Empty dryer and fold clean clothes.
    Transfer maybe clean clothes from washer to dryer.
    Load dirty clothes in washer.
    Go wash your hands!

    In the late 1990s I read about research that found laundry done at a laundromat had more bacteria on it after it had been finished than when it was started:-(. I didn’t have a washer and dryer at the time. I’m grateful now to have those and be able to clean and disinfect the inside of the washer.

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
