As a temporarily retired man, I’ve noticed my laundry load is much smaller. Instead of a bunch of work shirts and socks hanging on my line every Saturday I am down to just underwear, a few towels, a t-shirt and a few shorts and tank tops.
Since I don’t wear clothes at home there is much less to wash. If it wasn’t for my daily walks in which my underwear gets all sweaty I could probably get away with doing a small load every two weeks.
I seldom use my gas dryer except in extreme wintery weather which seldom occurs. I use it maybe twice a year. I prefer to take a little time to hang my clothes out to dry in the sun. Solar power at work! Plenty of that in San Antonio.
