I did the laundry today and boy, did I have one big mess. I do the laundry every week and it’s pretty much a routine for me to load the washer and dryer the same way each time I do this chore. It was early in the morning and I must have been out of it, that I have set the dryer on high heat for one hour, where the beddings were loaded.
When time was up, I took the clothes out from the first 3 dryers and made sure to take out the beddings from dryer 4 the last. I was shocked when I pulled out the bed sheets and pillow cases all shriveled up and wrinkled. I almost cried. In my head, I thought of how big a job it’s gonna be to iron everything.
The default setting of the dryers are on high, and I normally dry the beddings on low heat because of the nature of the material(800 thread count egyptian cotton). I surely forgot to set the dryer on low. Drying them on low heat, would ensure that I won’t have to iron them. That kind of cotton is so heavenly and soft on the body, but they do need specific care, unlike regular cotton.
So what did I do? I folded them all wrinkled and shriveled up and just put them in the wash again next week. Lesson learned: pay attention and don’t do any chores when you’re still sleepy.
Info: I don’t own 4 dryers. We live in a high rise and we have our own laundry room inside our building and use a laundry card to operate them for a fee, of course. It’s normally added into the maintenance fee every month.
