- IF you have a shelf above your washing machine, AND
IF you use the kind of liquid soap that lies on it's side and dispenses like those lemonade jars people have at picnics AND
IF your dispenser sometimes drips a little before you can get the dispensing cup back on and makes spots on your dryer which you hate and make you want to scream, THEN
here's my tip: Move the laundry soap dispenser so that it will drip into your washing machine.
It took me years to figure this out. And then I didn't really figure it out. Husband came into the garage while I was having a meltdown because there were more of those drip spots and they had dripped on some clean laundry, too. I explained the situation and he calmly moved the laundry soap a foot to the left, ensuring all drips will go into the washing machine will I'm pouring in the detergent and then rinsing the cup in the water for only a few minutes. I once again felt safe and secure in the universe.
- Pigtails are appropriate on a 31 year-old woman. Because I say so.
(The practical aspect to pigtails is that a ponytail will make a lump on the back of my head. This lump is very uncomfortable when I'm driving and put my head against my headrest. Pigtails part the hair in the back, leaving a flat surface.)
