What isn’t added to the list of meanings but according to the Internet age where memes are rife;
3. the adults version of The Never Ending Story
I’m sure you’re familiar with this meme that has been shared a millions times by adults who are forever trapped in a never ending cycle of washing…
As the person who does the most laundry in our household I can relate to these. Oh, don’t get me wrong, I ain’t complaining about being the one who does this job because someone has to do it, but it has to be one of the most annoying responsibilities or tasks that you have to do when you’re an adult. And I know I’m not alone in this because there are a million memes created about how crap laundry is and each has been shared a million times. And one million multiplied by one million is a number that I can’t get my head around.
And because you have laundry of your own that needs to be done, I have come up with some “life hacks” that will help you finally get all that washing up-to-date. But before that, here’s some more memes about laundry to help you procrastinate (if you didn’t have any other form of procrastination on your go-to list…)
5 Ways To Always Be Up To Date With Your Laundry
1. Become a Naturist and Stop Wearing Clothes
This is really only possible if you’re going to be living in warm climates, but just think about all those shirts you won’t have to iron, those kids’ clothes you won’t have to soak, those socks that won’t go missing, those colours you won’t have to separate, those delicates you won’t have to hand wash, those woollens you won’t have to dry in a shaded area, or lay flat to dry.
The downside is that you’re either going to have to stay very fit, lean and looking your best, or you can simply decide that you have no shame and you’re happy to have it all hang out.
2. Stop Taking Showers or Baths or Going For A Swim
After clothes, towels are the next thing to fill up my dirty clothes hamper, washing machine and then laundry baskets. So if we stop with all that washing of our bodies, there will be no towels to wash.
As an alternative, we can simply drip dry after a shower, bath or swim, which leads me to…
3. Stop Washing and Drying Dishes and Wiping Down Tables and Benches
Tea towels and wash clothes aren’t as big as bath or beach towels but I tend to replace them daily if not sooner therefore having a pile of them to wash each week. As we have a dishwasher I tend to let the dishes dry in that so the tea towels are more often than not hand towels but they do get used to dry down a plate or two that haven’t dried properly.
4. Sleep Straight on the Mattress
Sheets, quilt covers and pillowcases make up a large portion of my wash each week. I know it wouldn’t be comfortable, but sleeping straight on the mattress without sheets or covers and no pillowcases needing to be washed would lessen the load. If it gets to cold one can always turn up the central heating.
5. Do Nothing Else BUT Laundry
Give up your job. Stop playing with the kids. Don’t eat, don’t sleep. Just. Do. Laundry. Trust me, you’ll always be up to date. Sure you won’t have a life, but that’s a small sacrifice to make to be up-to-date with the laundry, right?
I hope this has helped you. I know that these Lifehacks can be overwhelming and you wonder if you really have the ability to do these, but trust me, you can do it…
