If you do, I think you will already have two clients.

Make it three if you fold! Be warned...I have 2 teenaged daughters. That's a LOT of laundry. I supply great soap though!

Make that four if you can make it across the border on Thursdays or Fridays? I like my laundry out of the way before the weekend...

Five, just fold the socks, don't tuck them.

I stopped buying paper towels, although that's an idea for a different thread. I have plenty of hand towels and as we say, our hands are perfectly clean after washing them !

As far as laundry, I fine with loading the washer. I keep separate hampers for each color and type of laundry. I occasionally call on my helpers to transfer it to the dryer or to sort and put it away, however.

Oh my! Let me tell you about "laundry". There is a mountain of it here army DD's! She pointed out a basket of clean laundry to me and said "that is mostly socks". Why in the world does anyone need a basketful of socks?! Her answer, "I don't know, I guess when we can't find any we just buy somemore". Oh my! Where did this child come from? :-) Since she is now in hospital giving birth, I guess it will be my job to deal with the "mountain". Ugh!

Mom has clean diapers in her laundry/ironing stack...the "baby" is 41. When they moved, I think they just forklifted it out of the basement and moved it into the new house 300 miles away.

I used to throw all the socks, his and hers, in one drawer. You want a pair, then pick it out yourself. The boys didn't care if their tops matched. They were always covered by their pant legs. aWith six people in the house wearing socks, I wasn't about to spend most of my day sorting. All socks had white bottoms.
