21.08.2012 | 手洗衣服

[Volume 7 Issue 8, #1513]
好酸呀我兩隻手!! 剛剛洗完自己啲衫, 正確啲講係用~手~洗~完幾件衫.. 因為家姐趁假期去咗旅行, 所以呢幾日冇人幫我(用洗衣機)洗衫.. 其實都可以等佢返嚟嘅, 不過我有啲衫係著去workout, 濕晒臭汗所以要儘快洗, 如果唔係就臭氣熏天㗎喇!! 再加上幾件衫冇可能開洗衣機, 而最大問題係, 我根本唔識用部洗衣機囉, 哈哈!!! 呢個就係平時少做家務, 需要依賴屋企人嘅後果.. 算啦, 就靠自己用手洗啦, 聽講用手洗衫可以消耗更多卡路里~~ :D
my two hands are so tired!! just finished washing my own clothes, it's HAND-washing few clothes to be exact.. because my sister went for her vacation during the long weekend, hence nobody is doing the laundry for me.. actually i can wait for her to come back, but because some of my clothes were worn for workout, they are soaked with sweat and must be washed soonest possible, else they'll get stenchful.. furthermore i can't use the washing machine for just few pieces of clothes, and the biggest problem is, i do not know how to use the machine at all, haha!! this is the consequence of rarely doing house chores and relying on your family on them.. anyway, it's not really the end of the world, i can still handwash them and i heard handwashing your clothes helps to burn more calories~~ :D

    1. Good morning, HS! True, clothes last longer if they are being handwashed. Otherwise, you can see those gathers become loose.

      SK must learn how to operate the washing machine too. Actually it's a simple process if he needs to wash his jeans or so.

    2. I lazy to handwash. I just dump them in the mesh laundry bag to protect those more delicate ones. hehehe

      Delete
    3. I normally hand wash my own undergarments. Not nice to throw into the machine as sometimes my boy does the laundry.

      Delete
    4. What? You don't know how to operate a washing machine? Seriously? :p

      Delete
    5. But then like SK said, its just a few clothes. kinda waste if electric and water if ma hine wash

      usually I would wash clothes alternate day. that is the max num of days to wait before the boy run out if uniform

      Delete
    6. but I still put in my washing machine to wash..
      I use the laundry bag.. so far ok to me...
      my clothes are not so expensive..

      Delete
    7. Kesien Sk also, leg sprained also have to wash clothes. Should just use the washing machine to wash every 2 or 3 days.

      Delete
    8. Yannie, SK revealed here that his beloved sister is away temporarily and he couldn't operate the machine. Thus he's depending on his bare hand to wash his dirty smelly clothes.

      I usually put all the clothes into the washing machine, except for undergarment and some delicate dresses. Those I would handwash them.

      If I put my undergarment and get grrrr grrrr grrrrr in the washing machine, their lifespan will be very short and I need to buy new one again.

  3. Your hurt foot is not in the way when you squat down? Foot must be healing well then. :)

    1. I suppose SK stand while washing his clothes? Sometimes I do that too. Easier to stand than squatting down.

      Delete
    2. Yeah, sometimes I just just do them over at the sink. Especially those that don;t really need brushing or vigourous scrubbing or if they are small. :)

      So SK, how's the foot?

      Delete
    3. Is your foot ok to do exercise in the gym? better now?

      Delete
    4. How to scrub those stinky work out clothes if standing? If intimate wear then can do over the sinky lah.

      this must mean his foot is better already.

      Kira nit bad la this SK . at least even if don't know how to use washing machine, he still know how to hand wash them. some men apa also duno. wait till mother, sister or wife to do.

    5. I m not good in hand wash...
      Normally I just dump in to the washing machine and grr grrr grrrrrr...
      It reminds me do not get those delicate clothes

      Delete
    6. If you all can, buy the laundry balls, very good in washing all kinds of clothes, and smell good after washed.

      Delete
    7. Squat down only la, nothing to do with his sprained foot. SK can use a bangku to support himself in the bathroom, I reckon.

      Meow, I agree with your statement. Some guys really are fully depended on their 'female housemate' to do the laundry and house chores..... (my other half is a good example %&*&^#).

      At least SK is still ok with his own laundry. He didn't leave them in the basket for days, or worst still, soaked them in the water. I got one housemate previously who always soaked his clothes in a bucket of water.... he soaked it for several days until white maggots started to appear in the water, yucks!! So freaking geli!

  5. Good morning! I used to hand-wash my working clothes as they are mostly thin clothes. But nowadays I don't need to do so much of hand-washing anymore.

    1. If one or two person clothes then can hand wash la. but if big family plus all working, then its hard to expect the wife to hand wash the cloths lor.

      but true what is said coz hand washed clothes are more lasting. and we can concentrate scrubbing the most dirty part like neck, arm those places.

  6. I never bother about the labels. Just dump everything into the machine, never mind hand or what, wet or dry...all in!!! Except for those where the colours will fade - new t-shirts especially, the dark colours.

    2. Yes I also don't bother so much on the label.
      Just the most important is the colour...
      I don't want my red underwear goes to my shirt... Lol

      Delete
    3. I know some ppl are very particular about the labels. I don't. As long as everything can be mixed and won't result in rainbow colors in the end, I dump all my clothes into washing machine.

      I see my neighbours are very good in sorting their laundry. One day, white laundry; another day colorful laundry. I only sort my laundry based on tops and bottoms. I don't wash the black skirts / pants with those t-shirts. Somehow, the fluffy thread from shirts will get to 'stick' on my black bottoms and it makes them looks like, er, furry??

  7. A garment wash bag works well to prevent clothes from too much wash-tear. (Oops! I forgot SK does not work the washing machine.)

    1. I remember SK also mentioned he doesn't know his own house switches, he doesn't know which switch is for which function.

      SK, do you know how to on TV?

    2. Yan, maybe that one also.he dont know. could be used his laptop to watch movie aje. LOL

      but then not surprising if some men can not operate the washing machine. some machinetoo many buttons n then got tray for detergent, holes for Clorox, then place for softeners. all these could be pretty intimidating to some.

    4. Hopefully he can find a wife to take care of him as good as his sis. He is a blessed brother.

    5. While his sister is away, SK should move into Kamala's house. At least he still has someone to take good care of him~ :p Free lodging, free food, free laundry and perhaps free massage on his swollen foot?

    2. When I was 10 - 12, my Mom made me wash tub and tubs of clothes during the weekend. Imagine washing for a family of 9! Back ached. Hands ached. Legs also sakit. Then, have to lug the pail fill with wet clothes out and hang to dry some more. I did it all by myself. :(

      I hated it so much, because Mom would always came by and make sure I did it properly or complain about my washing, it put me off doing laundry now. Lucky hubby does it for us. ^^

    1. That's the thing I cannot accept, SK. You cannot operate the washing maching. Just dump in your laundry, on the switch, put in detergent, on power, then press wash. Your sister has really pampered you so much. Don't ever think of waiting for her to come back and wash your dirty clothes.

      Last time, I have a boss, he told me he didn't know how to on the PC. I was so shocked too.

      Delete
    2. Goodness you, SK, you should have asked your sister to brief on all the house hold appliance, before she went for holiday. Otherwise, she sure worried of you when she was in her holiday.

      Delete
    3. Maybe sk feels intimidated by the machine leh. Too many buttons n feeder to put. at least if some showed him how to use the machine once he will know leh.


      me too was puzzled by my washing machine when first bought. scared press wrong buttonn the thing will kaput.

      Delete
  14. OMG don't know how to use washing machine? Just like my hubby! haha well I have taught him how to use it since then, so that he doesn't need to rely on me. You should learn too, it's very simple! Just press a few buttons (sometimes just one, if it's auto mode) and voila! :)

    2. true, very easy to operate the washing machine. SK should ask his sister to teach him so that he doesn't need to rely on her.

    3. SK is a computer genius, i also don't believe he can't operate washing machine. Those buttons on washing machine were sap sap sui for SK. SK just tried to blur and innocent, so that his elder sister can take care of him forever.

    4. I agree too. sK must. learn how to operate thewashing machine from his sister. at least next time no need so cham hand wash while the feet sprain pulak.

  17. Anyway, I also handwash a few items, such as my exercise clothes, which have bra pads, as I do not want the washing maching to spoil the bra shape, so I always handwash it. I just soaked it with some detergent, then just lightly washed only, I don't think this type of activity is sufficient to burn calories.

    1. If we seldom touch or operate something, we tend to scare when we need to use it. For eg. before I start baking, I envy people who can bake and operate the oven. I was so scared to operate oven and attempt a cake. I also don't know where I suddenly want to challenge my weak point. I decide to conquer my weak point by starting baking. Now, i think I can use my oven quite good already.
