Sometime in the past week or two, we made a BIG mistake.
Here's the back story: Tyler and I talked about chores before we got married and half way divvied them up according to what each one of us likes to do. We decided that Tyler's jobs were doing laundry and vacuuming, and that my jobs were dishes and cleaning bathrooms. Since we talked about that, his schedule has been significantly more busy than mine since I am still looking for a job, so I do what I can to pick up on most of the household chores.
Now, Tyler mainly just does laundry (because I really hate folding clothes), picks up dead spiders, grills if we grill, and I do the other stuff. As per Tyler's decision, Sundays are laundry day. Most of the time this works out pretty well, and most of the laundry is done by Monday morning.
But a few weeks ago we had a busy Sunday, so that left us splitting up the laundry duties, which left one of us forgetting about some laundry in the washer. I'm not really sure who it was, but I'll just assume it was me since I was probably home and I remember putting some wet clothes in the dryer a few times in the past couple weeks.
Let me just say, I don't remember smelling anything bad when I put any loads into the dryer, nor when I hung and folded any clothes...but PHEW! We noticed this week that all our grey and white clothes stink to high heaven! The smell seems to also come in waves. I put a shirt on and didn't smell anything for the majority of the day, but later I thought there was a weird smell coming from somewhere. Then Tyler hugged me and smelled that it was my shirt! Other times you know before you put the shirt on that it is one of the smelly ones!
If you were to come over a few days ago, you would have found me going through the closet sniffing all the grey clothes, and then sniffing the clothes on either side of it (because trust me, that smell spread) so that we could rewash everything!
Let's just say I'm hoping this is one mistake we never make again!
