The washer and dryer are on the second floor. The bedroom is on the third floor. I love going to bed with laundry in the dryer. That rhythmic sound is very comforting to me. I’m not sure why. I know I prefer white noise to sleep, experts be damned, but laundry drying actually doesn’t fit the definition of white noise, and I definitely like it even more when there is a hoodie or something in the dryer that produces an irregular “clang.” I generally don’t take long to fall asleep, but those moments before are so much better when the dryer is spinning, and even better-er when it dings occasionally.
Yes. The clothes are wrinkled the next day – or the day after that – when I finally get them out of the dryer. Work pants, in particular, usually get another wash, or, minimally, another twirl in the dryer. It is incredibly embarrassing and so un-green, and I live with that shame…until the next load goes in.
I need somebody to add “laundry in the dryer, with clang,” to a white noise machine.
There. I said it.
