Lettuce Do Our Laundry

A post or two back, mentioned I lost part of my lettuce spinner. Today, I washed lettuce, wrapped it in a white kitchen towel and set it all in the sink.

Time to do the whites - all my kitchen towels. Grabbed everything, tossed it in the washer.

Final spin, yes, you've guessed it already. My washer is coated with lettuce. Now, if I tried to carry a towel of lettuce 15' to the washer, it would never happen. Some would have fallen out to alert me.

I'm rewashing the towels - I think the lettuce as had enough washing and is well spun dry!

Update: Got an email wondering if I used the lettuce. No, a thousand times no.

Aww, what a freaky accident with the lettuce. I hate when things get stuck in the washer, like kleenex in the pockets. a big mess!

I was very proud of my grandchildren on their last visit because I didn't have to go around picking up candy wrappers. I did their laundry before sending them home, and you guessed it, the dryer will lined with candy wrappers.

Granny - are candy wrappers easier than Kleenex:)

Sorry, but this has me laughing.
I can almost see the expression on your face when you opened the washer.
Are you planning on buying a salad spinner this week?

Stop by my blog on Monday because I have a little something for you.

I like the catchy title! and I don't blame you one bit for tossing the lettuce, the after taste of soap, yuk.

Do you know, I am in the process of defrosting the freezer. I ask myself if we can put a man on the moon why can't we design a freezer which does not require the entire contents of my towel cupboard to defrost it!

The demise of domestic sanity!

Great place here. You have my admiration and hugs.

Thanks for coming by my blog. This story is priceless. It is strange how we can't do somethings if we tried, but they make "great" mistakes. Thanks for sharing it.

This is the best example of Murphy's Law I have ever seen!

No ding-dang lettuce fell out!!!
