The Magic Washing Machine


It seems that the people living with me in this house think that our washing machine has magical powers. You see they think that if they lay something with stains on it (such as ketchup) that the washing machine magically treats the stains, puts the laundry in the washing machine, soaks it, washes it, gets it in the dryer, dries it, and gets it out and folds it! Lo and behold the washing machine is so great it can even find the stained things that are just thrown in the laundry hamper and get them clean too!

Do you see anything magical about the washing machine? All I see is a 12 year old machine that "ain't what she used to be" as stains seem to be harder to get out (but maybe that isn't the washing machine's issue...) but keeps on, keeping on.

Now I know some of you are thinking "She's complaining and her family gets things to the washing machine or hamper! What is her problem? What does she expect. I'd be thrilled if my family got things that far!" All I have to say is you probably don't have a cat that pees on anything made of cloth that is left on the floor. At my house if you don't want to smell like cat pee you don't leave clothes on the floor.

I can not buy a front loader until this machine dies...I can not buy a front loader until this machine dies...I can not buy a front loader until this machine dies...I can not buy a front loader until this machine dies...

PS. I do have to say that I believe in the Lunch Box Fairy. He is this very magical fairy that comes in at night and makes lunch for whoever needs it the next day. He even makes lunch for me! I love the Lunch Box Fairy more than I can begin to say. So I guess having a Magic Washing Machine is a very small price to pay.

Your magic washing machine looks very similar to mine - about the same age as well. It just keeps going and going. It's a Kenmore.

I think it must be a magic machine since look at the adorable decorations it has on it!

I have to agree though. No one "gets" what it takes to stay on top of laundry. Just wait until all those girls start changing clothes several times a day and putting everything in the laundry!

The "ornaments" on your machine are quite cute!!

Can't believe how big they are.

Appliances that "keep going" are a good thing.

You need to move! There are magic washing machine in Illinois. And excactly what you describes happens here! I promise it does. Guess you married the "lunch fairy" and I married the "laundry fairy!"

I would trade with you. When I had to buy a new machine, we ended up with a new plumbing drain to the sewer! I know you really want that new front loader though. :-)
