Reeking Havoc

Reeking Havoc

A clothes pin is probably the most useful purchase you can make in an effort to combat global warming. Not only can you use it to hang your clothes up to dry, but you can also use it to plug your nose when you're stuck doing a load of rank laundry.

Japanese wives who report to "always or occasionally" separate their husband's smelly laundry from the rest of the household clothing and linens, are being encouraged to hold their breath and throw it all in together.

As we've mentioned before, doing a single load of laundry can utilize up to 15 gallons of water. Even if a certain member of your family could use a visit from the Irish Spring Leprechaun, it’s highly unlikely that its stench is going to jump over to your clothes in the spin cycle. And if an item of clothing is that noisome, tell Stinky to hand wash it. [AFP]
