what do you do with all your kit?
right........I'm fed up with my washing machine going constantly..........I'm sure I'm causing an enviromental disaster just in my house...........
so I run 4 times a week and cross train.....................
OH runs 5 times a week.......
1 son has PE 3 times and plays hockey 5 times and runs twice.................
1 son PE 3 times a fortnight....hockey 2 a week and horserides
3 rd son just horserides...........
this just makes so much washing everyday before you start in the normal school uniform/ clothes/ sheets/ towels.
so how do people cope with constantly washing kit......
Maybe it would be better if we were all couch potatoes wearing the one set of clothes for the whole day
Nick... you're required for laydeez friday amusement on the photo thread...
Don't worry we'll still respect you in the morning!!
I let the sweat dry and use it again
When it gets smelly and people notice, then I wash it
I re-use mine as well, hang it on a hanger to let it "air" and wear it again, no one notices or i run on my own!!!
I wash my kit each time, seren, our house is like yours with the kids, littlest comes home every day covered in grass and mud stains. They both have fallen in the stream on the farm on various occasions.. the really muddy bit
and the cat does furballs daily on the throws....
LOL, OH wshes my stuff once a week no matter how many times it's used
Now that I'm biking as well, I have two sets for her to wash
I don't find sports it too bad - it generally dries pretty quickly.
Stuff like jeans, most school uniform, throws for the settees because we have dogs etc go in the dryer. Worse in Winter when the radiators are covered in clothes drying - not really a problem in Summer.
I wash my running kit when it can crawl to the washer itself. Usually get 2-3 runs out of it but I do run alone!
On the subject of washers... My machine's 20 years old (inherited it!) and last night it took ages to do its normal programme. Clothes came out warm (depite a cool rinse) so I reckon it's over-heating. And a couple of things have run, inlcuding my sports bra that's now sludgy mauve / grey colour. If it's the thermostat is it worth replacing? Mr S says it may be time for a new one.
Just about to say the same Shimmy Shimmy
mine only last a few years
popsider agree with worse in winter with radiators and banisters full of the stuff.don't use a tumble dryer.....
and agree about the stuff drying fairly quickly for sport but it seems to be neverending........
