Those little labels & laundry care

Other than the flying cars and outfits, sometimes I feel like we live in the era of the Jetsons. Computers everywhere, in everything. And while I’m not keen on a take-over Matrix style, I do enjoy how simple the machines in our house make things.

I can learn to cook something new watching a video on youtube right at the kitchen counter. I can take a picture, edit it, and share it with the world easily. I can do laundry and with the push of a button have it take care of my clothes with ease.

Remember my dirty little secret? The ‘stuffed animal’ setting took care of it. All the cycling clothes we wear on a weekly basis? The ‘performance apparel’ setting takes care of those. Sadly though, when a new item comes into the house I hit a hiccup. Those little labels that seem to require a degree to understand confuse me and I’m quite sure I’m not the only one. I’ve shrunk a few sweaters, ruined a few dry clean only items, and even created my own tie-die.

    Love it! I often ended up googling the symbols on my phone. This is going on the corkboard in the laundry room.
