Tackling the laundry mountain – win a year’s supply of Persil small and mighty

Somebody once said:

‘Behind every successful woman… is a basket of dirty laundry’

And the thing is it’s not just the heaped basket, but the stuff on the line, the next load whirling its way round the washer, the socks and pants strewn under the bed (because your kids deemed it too much effort to walk to and put them in the laundry bin), the small mountain in the ironing pile, the teetering piles of clean folded clothes waiting to find their way back into wardrobes..

Once you become a parent the laundry mountain becomes part of your life.

So ingrained does it become in your psyche that on waking to see blue skies and the sun shining instead of thinking ‘What a lovely day to relax in the park with a picnic’ you say to yourself ‘Oh brilliant – it’s a perfect day to get loads of laundry done’

We love this illustration from the brilliant Doodlemum, which epitomises this perfectly.

Doodlemum washing mountain

Nic from Team Netmums recalls how, as children, they rudely referred to their mum’s laundry as ‘The System’ You put your favourite top or dress into the amorphous System with some trepidation, never knowing where, when or in what state (or indeed hue) it would one day return. She started to tell us about the day her very best E.T. sweatshirt miraculously survived the System and reappeared in record time only then for the big E.T. transfer to be completely ruined with a hot iron at the last step of the process –  but the memory was too painful….

And then there are the lost socks. The mystery of where they go baffles eminent scientists today. If it was just one or two stray socks per household going missing each year it would be fair to assume they get lost behind cupboards or under beds but they stray in far too great quantities  for this to possibly be true. A quick straw poll of Team Netmums threw up the following possible theories to explain where they vanish:

  • The Borrowers/Sock Monsters take them.
  • Aliens with a love of mismatching sockwear steal them.
  • Fairies take them to use as sleeping bags.
  • They go to the same place lost hair bobbles go (when pressed this Team member could not pinpoint this place on a map).
  • They get eaten by duvets as they are obviously lower down the food chain.
  • Washing machines are connected via higher dimensions through which, in the right conditions, socks and only socks, pass from one machine to the other.

Whether you are a super efficient organised Laundry Queen or battle with your own mysterious amorphous System, which threatens to swallow you whole, we’ve got something to make your lives a little easier.
