I was transferring the laundry from the washer to the dryer and saw a bunch of white flecks. At first, I thought it was another Kleenex facial tissue that had snuck into the wash. I don’t keep close track of the clothes as they go in the washer, so non-clothing things do go in to occasionally.
But after a few pieces of laundry had the white flecks, I thought something was not quite right. With the tissue, there are a few small flecks but most of them are strips of paper. This time it was a bunch of very small flecks.
And with the tissue there are some pieces of it in only some of the clothes – whichever clothes were near the pocket that had the tissue in it. With this load it was every piece of clothing that had a bunch of specks.
After throwing most of the clothes into the dryer, I finally got to the bottom of the washer and found a very heavy Pull-Up pair of potty training pants. Let me tell you they aren’t meant to be soaked in water.
It had to have been used (i.e. some child changed out of his pajamas and threw everything in the laundry one morning), but I suppose that’s what the laundry detergent is for. And I am not picking all the white flecks out of the laundry – that’s what the lint filter is for.
