Who has time to hand wash every week? I don’t!

While I was living in Ireland, it was difficult for me to take the time to hand wash my delicate items such as my bras, panties, nylons, and even hand wash-only tops and skirts. But it was also really expensive to take things to the cleaners everytime I needed to get them clean. So I used a wonderful invention like the bra saver (made by woolite) to wash all my delicates. Unfortunately, I only had one while I was there so it meant I had to either cram them in or I had to wash more loads. But I rarely washed more loads because I felt bad enough that we used the dishwasher so often!

Anyway… about a week before I was moving out of Ireland the zipper on my bra saver broke. Naturally, when I came back home I went back to Home Outfitters where I purchased my first one, and tried to buy some more. No cigar. So, I emailed Woolite and asked if they would be able to sell me and ship it to me since I would be willing to purchase at least 5 (or 10 if necessary). But they said that they had actually discontinued the production of the item because they weren’t that popular. Needless to say, I was devastated!

Yes, I know there are other delicates washbags available out there but the woolite ones are the only ones that are made out of a thick enough material that it actually does protect your delicates. In fact, there is the pink one in the first picture that I bought from Sears but I don’t know how good it actually is. Plus, it only has one compartment. The woolite one allows you to wash two bras in one bag! Anyway, when I got to the Real Canadian Superstore today to buy some garlic bread to go with the Spaghetti that Mum was making for dinner and I saw that they had the bra savers I splurged and got four(!). Plus, I took the opportunity to buy some of their regular wash bags because it seems to be made from the same thick material that the bra saver is made from. What’s the third item in the picture? Scorch protectors! Whenever I try and iron my dress pants or shirts, I tend to get scorch marks especially around the collar and it looks awful… so i bought 3 of those too! Who’s a sucker? I am!
