One particular item has been showing up in every laundry cycle. It is a fleece lined hoodie and it must way 2 pounds dry. It is unusual for a cool weather item to show up so frequently during the middle of the summer.
|Looks like a road kill, doesn't it?|
|What can I say. Big is comfortable.|
Well, it was cool last night and I got chilled. So I put the hoodie on (hey, the kids are not around to see me wearing their hand-me-ups) and figured out the issue.
At two pounds it sponges up enormous amounts of water and takes forever to dry.
This item is heading to the landfill. In a perfect world I would sew in a new zipper and my kids would wear it. But it is not a perfect world.
Oh, I and I am going to have a little talk with the kids about not just dumping problems into the dirty laundry. That does not solve problems.
