Yay and boo. Laundry, the bane and bliss of my existence.

I'd forgotten how often we saw Magritte

There are not dirty clothes strewn all over my bedroom now. No, there are clean clothes in a semi-orderly heap in one corner (they're being folded and put away, bit by bit).

The bedclothes are all nice and clean. Oddly, lyricagent and wurmfood both seemed mystified when I mentioned that my pillows needed a bath- you'd think I had explained in great detail about the second head I had grown and reached to hike up my shirt while asking if they wanted to see it.

The frustrating part is that it seems that no matter HOW LONG or HOW HOT you tumble pillows for, they're Never Quite Properly Dry.
They're sitting next to the heat outputs on my computer right now, getting a bit drier.

I suppose I will give them another go'round in the dryer tomorrow night when I escape Late Christmas with the 'Rents.
  • Pillows only get dry by repeatedly wetting your face and hair as you sleep. It's a law of the universe.
    • Aaaaah. That could be it... hrm. Well, I'll cope with that, I guess.

      (imagining self running around the office shrieking 'MY FACE SMELLS LIKE CHEER DETERGENT')
  • Pillows are a wretched pain to dry. I've seriously contemplated putting them in the oven. Or just buying new ones.

    I can only assume that people who don't wash pillows grew up with unwashable feathery ones, or something. Or don't drool on them like I do.

    • I grew up with pillows that are usually fiulles with things like barley or buckwheat, so yes. No pillow washing for me. We mainly got around that through using thick (or multiple) pillow casings.
  • Do you throw a couple of tennis balls in with the pillows as they're tumbling?
  • Putting something in the dryer as was suggested to beat the hell out of the pillows helps.

    Plus then they're fluffier.
