Laundry Experiment: Results (almost)

I finished the laundry experiment on Sunday night by weighing the two behemoth bags of laundry that I saved for ONLY FOUR DAYS.  I managed to collect almost 30 pounds of laundry.  I have all the notes back at home so will update when those are in front of me.

Gatorland Laundromat

So I dug out my laundry card for the Gatorland Laundromat - I think I've got some bucks on here but I'll have to wait until I actually go to the laundromat to find out - this laundromat is nice, it's close to the house, and I found out the last wash is at 9pm.  With my current work hours I don't think I can hack this last wash time during the week, so I think what I'm going to do is stop the laundry saving tonight, weigh everything (yes, using the oh-so-scientific home weight scale) and then take it to the laundromat.  So I'll update after I've weighed everything and then start getting ready for laundry day!

Saving your Laundry

The one nice thing about this laundry experiment is that I haven't had to do laundry the past couple of days and it's been pretty groovy.  I actually got around to some ironing today instead of putting it off to fold or wash another load.

I'm still trying to decide whether to haul the laundry to the laundromat or just weigh it at home (using the oh-so-scientific home weight scale), and figure out the price per pound if we were to do it at the laundromat or have a wash and dry concern take care of it.

Got the photo with the bitchin' washing set up from Wikimedia Commons.

Almost two bags

I've almost saved up to two duffle bag's worth of laundry and I only started this thing on Tuesday - I might have to rethink this...

More later.

Laundry experiment

More on it, later, but the gist of it is an analysis of how much laundry we do in a week.

Why, Corelle, why?

I'm wondering why Corning is being so greedy that they've outsourced making the stoneware to China?  I have no problem with China making money but what really irks me is that with all the US cup manufacturers on the east coast, you'd think one if them could offer a fair price - not necessarily a competitive price, which I think is impossible to do these days without the use of child labor.
