What nice underclothes you both have.

I need to axe you guys a very serious question: What do you do with the clothes that aren't dirty and aren't exactly clean? Like you wore them once, maybe twice, briefly & didn't sweat in them?

I mean -- you can't re-hang/re-drawer them. They're not -- freshly clean. You don't want to deceive yourself that they're ready for prime time.

But you can't toss them in the laundry. PROFLIGACY!

And they look fucking awful in a pile at the foot of the bed (not to mention that this is apparently an arachnid re-spawn point or something, or IT COULD BE), or on that chair over in the corner -- it's the kind of clutter that makes my face hurt to look at. So slovenly. But those clothes are (mostly, kind of) clean, dammit!

Help. Please.

Hell yes you can wear them again. You just hang them overnight in the bathroom and they miraculously freshen right up. There's also this Febreeze product, which was plainly developed to spray on clothes while they hang in the bathroom. It isn't remotely necessary.

Then again, perhaps your bathroom doesn't have magical properties like mine does.

Now, if you are specifically referring to ladies underwear, you just turn them inside out.

Ha! I don't even bother with Febreze -- if they need that kind of treatment, they need to be washed, which is a thing I can easily do because I live in the burbs and have a big-ass burban washer and dryer.

Underthings are an entirely separate category -- well, two. Bras get worn and worn again many many times; I have to have the expensive kind with hydraulic lift systems to support the gals, so I'm damned if I'm gonna have 40 of them. Underpantalones, on the other hand -- I solved that prob by buying TONS of them. If an underpantalone has been in contact with the ol' undercarriage, however briefly, it goes in the laundry. Why not? I gots three hundred more of 'em!

If you're a man living in our house, you drape them higher and higher on top of the laundry hamper until I come buy and punch them through the flip-top lid into the hamper.

I like that system, Francine ... so efficient! For you all. And so sensible. For you all!

Fold neatly and set on a flat, horizontal object. (The floor doesn't count.) You'll either wear them again or be so annoyed by their presence that you -- or spouse -- will throw them in the laundry.

Long time listener...first time caller? No that's not right...anyway, long time no write.

You pile them. Spiders be damned. It gives you an opportunity to test your reflexes as you age. You pile them, until you're ready to wear them again, which may be some time, but that's okay.

Also, for wife solved that problem by just removing the lid to the hamper. Amazing how that worked for the both of us.
