The other day I ordered three dozen washcloths, two dozen for us and one dozen for Mom. Our gray washcloths were looking pretty shabby, and when I was taking care of Mom a couple of weeks ago I noticed her drawer was full of a bunch of threadbare washcloths that wouldn’t do much good, and I thought she deserved some nice luxurious washcloths to wash her face with. I got the washcloths from Kohl’s, they were on sale and I had a nice coupon I could use on top of the sale.
My order finally arrived and I got the washcloths out to prepare them for washing (I always wash new towels before using). They came in plastic bags like this:
And they were rolled up like this:
After I took off all the plastic bags I had to cut off the ribbon around each bouquet of washcloths:
So I did that and tossed them into my laundry basket, thinking I was done.
But then I discovered one of these in each washcloth:
And I had to cut each one very carefully so I didn’t snip a hole in the washcloth:
36 washcloths and a zillion minutes later I finally had all the little plastic widgets taken out of the washcloths and the washcloths in the washing machine. All in all, much more of an ordeal than I expected, ha!
