Washing machine schenanigans

Postby AmadeusCho » Thu, 07 Jan 2010 11:32 am

I've got this top loading washing machine and my t shirts and polo shirts always get turned inside out by the end of the wash.. But if I turn them inside out first before washing, they stay turned inside out after the wash.
I've tried turning them inside out first to see if they get turned back out the proper way for 3 washes, but so far dice dice.

There's got to be some explanation, like how they finally explained why the small cookies crumbs and smaller pieces of ceral settle at the bottom of the bag while the bigger ones tay on top.

Is there some scientific reason why the hell this is?



Thanks! :D

Washing machine spirits must be pacified. Run clear water only. Add can of apple juice and lotus blossoms. Burn two joss sticks while operating washer. Publicly thank washing machine spirits. They'll turn your clothes the right way next time.

That's a cool way of saying to turn your T-shirts inside out before washing, becuase the colours fade more quickly if you do not.

The reason why the machine doesn't turn them back is because it's saying you only get what you pay for :wink:

I have to tell the maid to turn my clothes inside out :cry:
