Thursday is here and it is my usual laundry day. I do laundry every day except when I work Mon - Wed. So by today I have several loads to get done. I am planning to wash all of my white cup towels and washcloths today in Clorox to whiten them. My things get dingy due to makeup and tea stains. So they need a little bleach bath. Do you remember when ladies used bluing to whiten their whites? I can remember my Granny washing her laundry outside on her wringer washing machine and she would put a little bluing in her rinse cycle to whiten them and then hang them on her clothes line. MMMM I can still smell how fresh and clean it was. All of her sheets were 100% cotton and so soft. My little sister and I would run through the sheets on the line and hide in them. The wind would be whipping them and they would crack and pop while they dried. We would help her take in the laundry and fold it. She would iron and starch her linens and fold them nicely. But the sheets would go back on the bed. She would "air out" the mattresses while the laundry was being done. I seem to have those same habits as an adult. I love clean sheets and change them several times a week. But I sometimes will use the same set over and over after they are washed for a few weeks, before I bring out a different color.
Well, I am off to do my taxes!! Yuck. Hope everyone is having great day.
