remember this cardboard miracle?

i plan to make one over the weekend (plus a smaller one for noah)

imagine how neat my closet will be after i use it.

right now my clothes are thrown in chaos in the closet.

i fold and put away everyone’s clothes (when i eventually get to it), but my own clothes i form into a ball and stuff into whichever compartment is available.

no wonder i stress so much whenever i have to leave the house.

You can reach her other cool works by hovering over miscelleneous items lying around in a huge open drawer. I really like the presentation.

I have a confession:

I never fold.

I wash and I dry, but I don’t fold.

Piles of clean clothes and textiles, fresh from the drier or the line are moved from place to place until they finally return to the laundry.

During the day they wait on the bed, hoping to be folded soon.

At night they are thrown on the dresser or even on the floor in the corner of the bedroom dedicated to exactly that.

Today I made a tactical mistake. I wanted to clear the floors, but I also wanted to make my bed, so I put everything in Uri’s bed.

Ofcourse Uri fell asleep before I cleared his bed and so I put him in our bed.

I wouldn’t mind him sleeping in our bed at all, if it weren’t for the fact that I told Noah he can’t sleep in our bed and it’s not really fair.

Sometimes I make up my mind, and fold one item. Sometimes I fold even more. But I never fold all the laundry.

It’s something that I can’t bring myself to do.

this is noah standing near the remains of our old washing machine. it broke when the baby was born and we bought a new one with a digital display and a timer and automatic weight. it actually weighs the laundry and knows how much water to use. unbelievable!

any way, noah helped james disassemble the washing machine so james can take it down the stairs. he enjoyed it so much i didn’t say a word about the time. it was way past his bed time.

washing detergent ad

Friday, June 27th, 2008

neatorama posted today about a very clever ad for washing detergent. the detergent sample was mailed across thailand packed in a t-shirt wrapped box. the address was written on the shirt along with postal stamps. as predicted, the postal service almost ruined completely the t-shirt and if the recipient wanted a new clean t-shirt, they had to use the sample detergent. that’s briliant and i like the fact that the company has such confidence in it’s product.

look! Robert Bradford made a terrier out of clothes pegs.

He makes sculptures out of used toys and he’s even made a 6 meter high big ben out of coca cola cans.

It is my duty to report the following: I read in Gizmodo that a new washing machine was invented. It uses just one cup of water. hmmm… should i add a category called laundry?

not a day has passed when i saw the following in MoCo Loco:

laundry hamper

I quote: + This laundry hamper by Slava’saakyan comes with a handy lid that doubles as a wash-basin for pre-soaking or hand-washing garments. This space-saving option can also be used to store detergent or other laundry supplies.
