Q: Do you have a washing machine? How does laundry work?
This may be the most riveting post ever. Brace yourself.
Washers and dryers are not always a given in New York apartments.
Thankfully, we have them in our basement.
At first, this underworld of our apartment gave me the creeps, but for the sake of clean clothes I got over it.
Sometimes you have to battle wet paint, but that's no biggie.
As a little review, here's my laundry room in our sweet, first home in Alabama.
And yes, the plug and dust buster being visible nearly made me nuts.
So not a part of my decorating scheme. Such a First World Problem.
New York laundry room.
Washers on the left, dryers on the right.
Two dollars to wash and two dollars to dry.
You put money on your laundry card in $5, $10 or $20 bills.
The money machine is snotty... it doesn't accept $1 bills or change. Jerk.
Once you've got money on your card, you put your card in the machine.
And laundry begins.
Only don't put your clothes in No. 17, the dirty thief.
It will trap your clothes while your husband is at work and make you have a panic attack trying to figure out how to retrieve them.
Do take pictures of yourself while your clothes dry and make the Super give you the side-eye and ask you why you are taking pictures in the laundry room.
Skip the part about blogging and answer, Just playing around.
It will work out better for everyone.
Secret Bonus Info:
I pass this red wheeled handle in the stairway on my way to do laundry and I want to turn it every.single.time.
Oh the temptation!
I apologize in advance for any laundry room jealousy I have created.
How you will ever return to your life after learning Such Amazing News! is beyond me.
We're all glam, all the time, people.
