You wear ironed underpants? :o :lol:

That's pretty damned high classy!




p.s. I shan't delve further into the issue of stiffness in the underwear department.

It was handy being in the states a couple weeks back. Picked up a couple large boxes of Bounce to help in the dryer!

That's what happens when you use terrible grammar like I do. :-(

Even using things like Soflan doesn't solve the stiff/coarse jeans feeling the tumble drying takes care of for you. It's only when clothes are just hung out to dry (either using an indoor handling system on on the porch or out on galah poles) that they get stiff/coarse because most flats don't have sufficient spacing between them to get a decent airflow (wind to keep the clothes flapping, which causes them to lose the stiffness - just like the tumbling in the dryer. Towels also tend to get stiff without a breeze to keep the fibers moving.
