    Today I hand washed two dresses, so I'm calling that a win. I should probably consider hand washing things more often.

    Oh yeah, the thread I've been waiting for.

    Hand washing is super adult. I do some of my blouses that way. If you have a lot of silk or wool The Laundress is really good for handwashing them (you can get it on amazon). Can't get it here but the handwash liquid I have hereis good too.

    If I can't find an instructional video for something, I don't need to know how to do it.

    That's how I learned how to fold a fitted sheet, and it's the most adultiest thing I do.

    Oh man I just stuff them in the under bed storage. No one can see.

    I want to have the desire to do that properly.

    I was pissed that this one task was defeating me, and now I've vanquished it and have its head on a spear as my trophy. Also folding is the one mindless yet soothing task I have that allows me to feel accomplished.

    @Lh718 That's how I feel about vacuuming.

    I never have to fold fitted sheets because the only ones we own are all on beds.

    I stood up to my CEO when put on the spot today so that was adulting at work. My at home adult move was waiting until after my chores were done (cooking, dishes) to take my bra off.

    If my bra comes off, there's a zero chance that I'm doing anything after
     
  13. I did all my dishes and then cooked. And then did those dishes. Crushing it today.

    I changed four poopy diapers today, picked up my dog's poop, and then picked up someone else's dog poop.

    I picked up 4 empty water bottles on our hike on Sunday...4! Basically part of adulting is picking up everyone else's crap. All. The. Time.

    I was going to ask how this is possible but then I realized that other people have dryers.

    You are the David Sedaris that the southwest needs.

    I bought a couple of blazers that are hand wash. Should I buy specific hand wash detergent?

    Buy a big lingerie bag, throw 'em in there, and wash them with your delicates. If they can't survive that, you don't want them. Fuck hand washing and adulting.

    Yes. Regular is too hard to rinse out on your own. Only use a very very teeny bit of handwash detergent...It goes really far.
