Day 9 - Wash clothes in cold water
I've always been a hot wash type. The last three days are a good example of why. On Thursday I shot a video outdoors in dirt and sand in the 100 degree humid weather and today I had a softball game in 95 degree weather. I came home both days clothes filthy and drenched in sweat. My father had always washed our clothes in HOT water to get out the grime, and when I left the nest I continued. Well, yesterday I went to the laundromat (our washer and dryer are in the house I built that the city won't let us live in because it doesn't meet the minimum square foot requirements. But that's for another day) and washed 4 loads of dirty laundry in cold water to save on the gas to heat the water. Success, no difference, clean clothes. Get on this people. And yes I know, I should have been doing this for years.
