You've gotta be kidding me.


I will admit my house isn't exactly the most organized place in the world, and laundry doesn't always get done in regular intervals.  The pile had grown so high I was unable to exit my room without climbing the likes of Mount Everest.  

I decided today is the day I get rid of this mountain and make it a mole hill.  I picked up some of the darks I could find without much examination (I didn't want to upset the whole dang pile) and I threw them in the washer.  Rather pleased with myself, I go down stairs and get my daughter some coloring to do.

Man I am on my top game today,
housework and mothering in one day.   
So I'm feeling great.  

When I hear the washer finishing the spin cycle,(and believe me everyone on my block can hear when my washer is spinning that thing is louder than the music at a concert.) I decide to go switch the load over to the dryer.  When I open the washer everything is covered in this huge mess of something.

Now what can this be???

I keep digging into the mess until I see the offending mess maker....one of my daughters pull-ups (which she doesn't even really wear anymore).  I had gel crystals over everything.  I tell you what those things are not made to hold enough water.  It could even handle one measly load of laundry without spewing its contents over everything.  Some pull ups just don't make the cut.

Time to Rinse and repeat I guess.
Without the pull up that is.

My little guy is finally out of those, but I hated finding one in the laundry with it's stuff hanging out all over the place. Yuck. =)

That would make me crazy. :$

Becca said...

Ew. Yeah. That's no fun. And it's not like it really ends... it just transfers from one disposable paper product to another. Hope that brightened your day. :)

Diapers through the wash are bad, bad, bad. If it happens, do not try to shake them out inside the house! put everything in a laundry basket and take them outside and shake away. Wipe out the inside of the washer and rewash everything with an extra rinse cycle. I don't know what those little crystal blobs are but they stick to everything.
