Have you ever had a laundry disaster? Not just having the dryer eat your socks, but a full on ‘everything went wrong’ kind of laundry disaster? I have! Today, it’s funny to think about, but when it happened, yeah, not so funny.
It happened a year or two after we had moved into our first house. It was a spring day and my husband had chosen to drive in to work rather than take the bus. I decided to start doing some laundry, so I started a load and went about doing other tasks. While I was doing those tasks, I kept hearing something strange and thought my son was playing in the bathroom. I checked on him and found him playing, but not in the bathroom and not with water. So, I decided to check the laundry and found, to my dismay, water spraying everywhere! One of the water hoses to the washer had cracked under the water pressure and was spraying water all over my dryer – it actually cut through the venting hose on the dryer and was flooding my garage. I panicked and called my husband who told me how to shut off the water and he then drove the 45 minutes home to help mop up the garage, dry out the dryer and replace the venting hose. That was my laundry disaster, you can tell me about yours when you enter my giveaway. And don’t forget to check those washer hoses – the same thing happened to my neighbor this last summer, but her laundry is in the house. They ended up needing to replace flooring and drywall and it took a while. Replace those hoses every 5 years, because, trust me, they do wear out and that is a lot of water!!
That’s right, it’s time for that giveaway I mentioned a couple of weeks ago. First, I need to tell you about the product that you could win a coupon to try it for FREE!
Purex has a new detergent called “Purex PowerShot” – it’s concentrated, so you use less, it has it’s own measuring system inside the bottle, so no more messy lids and you can even see through the bottle! Definitely, not a laundry disaster!
I tried Powershot on my bedding and it did a great job! My son said that it smelled great and I just have to trust that he’s right – my sniffer isn’t working today due to a head cold. I like the measuring system in the bottle, but I think my favorite thing about the bottle is that I can see how much detergent is left in the bottle, no more guessing whether I’m close to being out of laundry detergent, I see how much I have with my own eyes!
So,the good part (in my opinion, anyway) – two of my readers will have a chance to try Purex PowerShot for themselves and see justhow great it is!
