In the haste of packing for my trip to Sydney, I threw about seven shirts in the washing machine, dried them, screwed them up and shoved them into my suitcase to deal with when I landed on the other side. When I checked into my hotel in Sydney I managed to iron two of them before dying of boredom and giving up. The next day, I discovered a handy little service that I never before knew existed: washing and ironing at the dry cleaner. Apparently you just drop your dirty shirts in, they throw them in the ordinary washing machine, then press them for you. Only $2.50 per shirt, and without the harsh chemicals that kill your clothing with prolonged use. I figure I could wear a shirt for one day, drop it into the cleaner the next day, pick up a clean shirt from the cleaner, wear, clean and repeat every single day of the week, and it would cost me less than the price of a coffee per day. I’ll never pick up an iron again!
I LIKE YOU!
