Our washer and dryer finally broke down after many years so we were in the market for a new pair. I checked around and decided that with our utility room so small it might be a great idea to buy a front loader stack-able washer and dryer. The salesman was a man about 26 years old and he answered all my questions and was extremely helpful. I had to chuckle because he went on to say he did not like wrinkled jeans and he conducted an experiment on the model that I would be buying and the model he owned.

He said to wash the jeans on medium spin. I said really, why? He explained it was the high spin cycle that caused the wrinkles. It makes the heavier fabrics wrinkle more. After my washer was delivered I washed my husbands heavy jeans on medium spin and they came out beautiful. No more wrinkled jeans! I was so thrilled because I learned something new and who would have ever thought I would have learned it from a young man!

For those of you who are new to my blog I have some videos about cleaning tips for the bathroom and other tips like how to make your own laundry soap in fifteen minutes. How to make dryer sheets and linen water as well. I will be adding more here and there. I also have sewing lessons available.

Have a blessed weekend everyone and thanks for stopping by.


  1. Isn't it fun to learn new stuff? Even from the 'kids'! My 26 yr old son is in culinary school and always has new things to share. But my favorite is when he asks me questions about online stuff. Ha! Makes me feel like I'm really 'with it'!

  2. OOO I bet he has some tips to share! My son actually was considering going to culinary school before he went to grad school. He loves to cook. There for a while he was on a roll making cheesecakes.

  3. Medium spin = no wrinkles? I'm going to have to give that a try. The lead picture of your blog makes me feel younger again. Simpler times....sigh... :)
