I can just imagine it being neatly folded into fourths and then tucked securely into the pocket, tucked deep down into the pocket of an item that I would then (accidentally, ooops!) toss into the washing machine. Perhaps because of the gentleness of the cycle it was washed in, it didn’t wriggle out of the pocket and make itself known right away; however, it had certainly had an excellent opportunity to become thoroughly water logged and oh-so ready to drift out of the pocket…only to later decompose.
What am I talking about? The Kleenex, of course! (Sorry, but a facial tissue will always be a Kleenex to me, as cotton swaps will always be Q-tips!)
Flash to the Laundry Closet: I lean over and pop open the clothes dryer door. There is it! But it is in little bits and pieces … and stuck all over nearly every single clothing item in the dryer. (Sad face) Gasp! Sound familiar? Only good thing about this whole ordeal is that it was a white Kleenex in a load of “whites.”Had it been a white Kleenex in a load of “darks”…. Argh, let’s not even go there!
So, how does one deal with a “mess” like this?
Well, I chose to remove each clothing item, piece by piece, from the clothes dryer and then shake, Shake, SHAKE them…shake them until the little bits and pieces began to fall to the floor. I hung several of the larger clothing items on hangars and then after I pegged them on the metal hanging rack slung over the top of the wooden bi-fold door, I used both of my hands to wipe down the fabric, attempting to downwardly roll the bits and pieces to the floor using kind of a pawing motion of sorts. Then some more shake, Shake, SHAKING after which I chose to tidy up the floor by Dust Buster-ing up the little white bits and pieces.(Hmmm? Will Dust Buster-ing be the new go-to word for cordless portable electric hand vacuum for future generations? Like Kleenex and Q-tips are for my generation.)
Even though I thought I had corralled all the little white bits and pieces, sucking them up inside the DustBuster, they would still, every now and again, rear their little white knubby heads over the next few days, appearing here and there, but thankfully not everywhere. Yup, what a messy ordeal. Things could have been worse though….could have been white bits and pieces on “darks”…ugh!
