laundry in the tub



Have you ever heard of doing laundry in the bathtub? I read about it somewhere on the internet years ago (maybe here?), and this past week I decided to give it a go. If you want to give it a try, I highly recommend separating your clothes into 2 piles: dirty, and funky dirty. The funky dirty stuff goes in the washing machine while you wash the merely dirty in the tub. I also used this info.


Wringing it out and drying it was the hard part. Even after wringing, the clothes were VERY wet and took forever to dry on the line. Maybe running through the spin cycle would help, but then, what would be the point really?

In summation, I was really backed up in the laundry department, and this one "load" helped to nearly catch me up. It do not regret it and might possibly do it again in the future.

I used to do that when we lived in an apartment and carting the laundry to the laundry was a chore in itself - but I remember the drying to be a problem as well - we didn't have a balcony...

I don't know how you ever got your clothes dry. I hung some up in the bathroom witha space heater on and they were wet for two days! The ones I put outside took all day, but they at least got dry.

Not for me. I hated hand washing when I was single and washing machine poor. And my bath would never be empty with my lot.
