    Getting ready for our trip, me with my OCCD (obsessive compulsive cleaning disorder) and a house full of people.

    Last night I'm trying to wash up the mountain of laundry and put our new clothes through a wash cycle too. I'm washing DH's three new pairs of jeans and I realize it won't quite make a full load. I dislike wasting water by running the machine for less than a full load. No problem. I took my little house jacket off and tossed it into the washer too.

    It wasn't until I went to remove the clothes from the dryer that I realized my problem. All the broken eggshells in the lint filter were my first clue.

    We all have our smashed egg in pocket story, but how many of us can claim to be a professional eggwasher and dryer??

    DH wasn't too happy to find out I'd washed his new jeans with raw eggs. Thinking fast, I convinced him that I read it was a way to soften new jeans. [​IMG]

    That sure tops any egg in the pocket story.[​IMG] How many more times did you need to wash the clothes, or you just going with the new egshell look?[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
