My ambition is to get to the bottom of my wash basket!  Mines is on every single day - sometimes a couple of times.  My carbon footprint must be the size of a tyrannosaurus!

Do you have the thing where there is always the same item in the bottom of the wash basket because it just wont fit in so you think, well, I dont need it at the mo, it can wait until the next wash.

I go running on my own so my kit gets the sniff test before I go out.  Nah, it will do.  I call it being environmentally friendly. 

Mr Shimms gets washed every time though as he stinks Being a laydee I smell of roses when I sweat.

No, you are, all roses smell different.

I also find that if you wash your kit lots it won't last as long either, whcih costs more again. I usually put my kit on a half hour freshen up wash. It seems to work...

Shims, i wouldn't worry, I don't own an iron!!!  Lifes to short!
18/09/2009 at 11:54
Oh, I do own a iron, just in case I need to iron on letters onto vests etc.

Hand wash technical kit after a run and maybe machine washe every three to fourth outing. Not technical straight in the wash. Training kit always seems to be in the wash between gym, footie, tkd and running...never bliddy ending

The other option is just to rinse it off with you in the shower or bath - that gets rid of the sweat.  Then hang it out to dry and viola

Water saver AND kit saver

You are The Oracle PO!

Can't believe some folk iron running kit (no one here I see but there are one or two at my club that I have my suspicions about)

I stick soggy kit in the wash on a short wash cycle. Only takes 30 mins and uses less water. If it's raining, I put it in the airing cupboard to dry or on a radiator .... if it's on, which is rare

to be fair with so much kit needing washing its always in a full load
18/09/2009 at 12:35
I wish I had an airing cupboard, I hate washing on radiators it never smells as nice as line dried.

We rented a cottage in wales in the Summer - it had one of those drying racks on the kitchen cieling that you hoist up and down with a cord - old fashioned but definitely something we could do with in this house.

used to have one in my house when I was young pops........

My vests are always minging after a run cos I'm a fat lad and I sweat a lot. 

But I do wear shorts twice and sometimes socks. Use towels twice too.

TBH  A quick swish in the Washing Up bowl with some Fairy Liquid is all thats needed most the time anyway. And wicky kit is dried out by the next day

I've got one of these too

My kids call it 'the clothes monster'!

I do at least 1 load of washing every day, sometimes 2. I think it's just the way it has to be Serren, sorry!

At least we don't have to do the washing like they did back before electricity. Thank goodness for washing machines. Load it in, switch it on, take it out and dry it. Much better than it taking all day just to do one load.

I wash my cap in the shower as well.
























After I've had a wee, obv.
