    When I was a teen I thought I would help out my mom with the laundry unasked one day (between the hormonal meltdowns I was occasionally an actual human being), and ended up washing and drying her favorite cashmere dry clean only sweater. Yeah……..that was a bad day.

      It’s the thought? On a completely different (but you know, also kind of similar) note, I once broke some totally precious glass thing of my mom’s when I was young, and I’m pretty sure a small part of her still hates me for it. Live and learn, you know?

    I like this format better than others I’ve found online. But — I tried to print it, but all it does is feed a blank page. I’ve never had that problem before. Is there something wrong with the pdf file?

    Thank You!!! This is simple and large enough to frame. Now lives in my laundry room for my teenage daughters to wash their own clothes.

    I washed an angora sweater ( my favorite- in the 80’s) when I put it in – it fit me— when is was done — it fit my 6 month old cousin! Hard lesson learned but never forgot
