Mommy misses her Maytag

I never fully appreciated my front loader Washer and Dryer until I moved to Germany. Sorry Maytag....I miss you, please forgive me ! My husband, the love of my life said to me this weekend "boy you have been doing laundry all weekend!" and I said, yeah because I can only do tiny loads of wash and then it takes two hours to dry. Hello have you not seen the pathetic washer and dryer I deal with! Plus I have a fourteen year old girl that wears something for a milla second and it ends up in the wash! He said "well yeah I guess your right"! Ladies know how lucky you are with your huge washers and dryers....I'm so envious right now!

My Pathetic Washer located in my KITCHEN!

My equally pathetic Dryer located in the storage room. Dryers here do not vent outside the water catches in the thing showing on top and I dump the water out mid load into a bucket!

Yes a bucket and the year is 2009!

Yikes - I'm sorry to hear about your domestic woes!! I've used those types on vacation before and they are a huge pain. I wonder if using a clothesline would help?

I do feel your pain! When we got the front loads I secretly wanted my old ones back, tomorrow when I do a load I will give it extra TLC.

In addition to the above helpful tips, maybe a fold up clothes rack would help too. xo

I have a folded clothes rack mainly using for sweaters and delicates. Don't realy have the room for a clothes line perhaps in the spring if not too humid.
