.....and this is why.
I have a new front loader washing machine with LOTS of buttons and confusing bits. It means you have to read the manual to work out how to use it which is why I have washed my husband's work clothes for the first time EVER!
When we first started going out I told him that he was perfectly capable of washing his own clothes and he's been doing it ever since.
However, our last top load washing machine that was sounding like a jet plane taking off and shorting the house out (really not good I know), is now on its way to the dump. That means a new washing machine with lots of buttons and scarey bits.
I read instruction manuals. Hubby doesn't.
That means I had to test the machine out and hubby's work clothes were the first things to be washed.
...I'm currently doing up a easy to read instruction chart which I will lamintate and stick to the top of the machine.
By next weekend he's on his own again. :)
