ALL about ALL

Do I LOOK Crazy??
While taking photos of Big sleeping in the sunny kitchen, I realized if I faced the sun, it removed the kitchen from the back ground.

Today is not All about ME, even though it appears that way. I use ALL Detergent and Fabric softener since it is the only brand I am not allergic to. 

They sit side by side on the dryer, the only way to tell which is which is which, is White Lid detergent, Blue Lid Fabric Softener and the detergent sits closest to the washer
. Easy! right? 

Wrong, what if my mind spaces and I reverse how I sit them. Will I check the lids? Make sure which is which? Well, of course I will, IF I remember. Will it ruin the washer if I pour Softner in the detergent hole and vise versa? 
I hope not, because I did. After I poured softener in detergent hole, I realized what I did and Added Detergent on Top of it.
Did the clothes get double soft? Since there was softener in Both Holes? 
That's Not All of This Story.
Two days before that, I poured bleach in the detergent hole. OH No! 
Yes, I added detergent in the same hole!
My towels were clean and now I am wondering just how confused my Washer is?
Or better yet how confused are you?
Does it matter?

You are looking very good girl!
Everyone is sometimes confused ... that's why I use the pods for the detergent ... don't mix up more ... the detergent and the softener!

Ann said...

All I can say is that I would surely mix them up. I use the dryer sheets instead of fabric softener but even that can get confusing. If I throw a sheet in before the clothes, when I get done putting all the clothes in I wonder did I throw one in already and since I'm not sure I'll throw in another.

Well, even if you did what you did, it seems ALL's well.

I guess All worked out OK. You look cute, not crazy!

The two bottles of all look alike, easy to pick up the wrong one.

ALL I can think is your brain was busy composing clever puns?

'Wish you would share this with your washer's manufacturer. They could put you in a national commercial to demonstrate how their product takes a licking and keeps on ticking. (Oh wait a minute … wrong product.)

As long as your clothes don't disintegrate as you walk around the mall, all is well... YAM xx

Gayle said...

All is well here. I don't use fabric softener or sheets. Less cost and the static goes away before they reach the drawers and closets.

You definitely don't LOOK crazy but it sure is easy to do crazy things like this! Just tell me it gets easier. hahaha! I'm already distracted by the smallest things...even just when I'm thinking too hard! Enjoy your day! Hope it runs smoothly...YOU and your washer!

There is no doubt in my mind that I woudl mix them up! I have to use dryer sheets for that very reason! Also, my washer and dryer are in the basement and it is too hard to add the liquid softener after to wash starts!! HA HA!

My Mind's Eye said...

BOL BOL BOL MS you are a Mad pourer too.
they might have been in the wrong compartment but at least they were in the right machine. LOL
Love it

Glad that turned out okay. Sounds like something I would do :)

LC said...

I'm with Ann, dryer sheets. I still find ways to mix things up, though. As long as you keep that beautiful smile brightening everything up, ALL is well!

I use the dryer sheets and just liquid detergent in the wash. Seems to work okay for me. I don't like and Hubby hates the fragrance of most cleaners so I have to be careful.
Love your pose in the first photos.
Gotta tackle some bills today..always stressful for me.
Finally feeling human again...
On with Life!!

The only reason I don't do that more is because my detergent dispenser is the kind you can use for multiple washes. I do, however put the fabric softener in the bleach dispenser sometimes...LOL

Kim@stuffcould.... said...

You look so. Bright! Idk if it matters but sounds very clean. I am forgetting stuff like that

Ruth Hiebert said...

They do look easy to mix-up.

Rose said...

OMG...are you sure you are not my sister! This so sounds like something I would do.

When the girls were in school, I always took them to school and picked them up. I don't know why, but I never developed the habit of putting my keys in one spot, nor keep them in my pocket. I could not find my keys. We were frantic. I had a clean pan sitting there with the lid on...why it was sitting out is more than I knew even then. I lifted the lid, and there were the keys in the pan!

Your mind seems about as muddled as mine, lol

NanaDiana said...

hahahah...nothing like confusing a washer, is there? I don't think it makes a white of difference...except if you pour bleach in the softener dispenser. lol Big problem then!
Have a wonderful CLEAN evening. xo Diana

Sandra - I am so glad to see there is another person like me out there. I do the same thing all the time - maybe not with laundry - but with other things. Hey I use that All both in pods and dryer sheets.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Oh my!! So I'm assuming the load you put the bleach into was okay. We don't use bleach anymore in the washing machine.

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

I use both detergent and fabric softener, but as they are different brands I have, so far, not confused them although I have put the wrong one in the wrong container on the washing machines here in the mill apts at least once at my kbnowledge with no adverse results.
