re: Mandatory Laundry Seminar this Saturday
The Laundry Mistress will be conducting the Semi-Annual Laundry Seminar this Saturday beginning at 1300 hours. Attendance is mandatory for all family members over the age of 5.
The seminar schedule will be as follows:
1300 - 1305 How Clothes Are Cleaned - The Laundry Mistress will walk attendees through the laundry process from dirty to clean. This will include a tour of the laundry room and general instructions on how the washer and dryer operate.
1305 - 1310 Hands On! Laundry Recepticles - Attendees will locate all the proper laundry recepticles in the house and search for dirty laundry not in the proper place.
1310 - 1315 A Week in the Life of Your Favorite Shirt - Why does it seem to take a whole week for your favorite shirt to be cleaned? The Laundry Mistress will point out common pitfalls in the laundry process from dirty clothes being shoved under the bed to folded laundry not being put away in a timely fashion. This portion of the seminar will also consider the impact of wearing two or three different outfits every day and how all that extra laundry can clog the whole process.
1315 - 1325 Hands On! Right Side Out - Yes! Socks, pants and shirts can be removed from the body without being turned inside out! This most important portion of the seminar will include a discussion of how stains and stinks can best be removed from soiled clothing if the clothes are washed right side out. Attendees will have a chance to practice clothing removal techniques that will minimize the amount that clothing is turned inside out and will practice turning clothes right side out if those techniques fail. PLEASE NOTE: once this seminar is completed, all family members over the age of 5 will be required to turn clothing right side out before placing it in the laundry recepticles. The Laundry Mistress may reject inside out clothing from the cleaning process or may return cleaned items folded inside out.
1325 - 1330 Q&A - To conclude the seminar, the Laundry Mistress will answer questions and offer additional help for anyone interested.
Please note the day and time of this seminar on your calendars. Being absent or late to this seminar is punishable by up to three hours of laundry duty service.
