It's systematic, really.
Get up, get dressed, nurse the baby. And throw in the requisite load of laundry for that day.
Monday it's diapers. Tuesday it's the hubs' uniforms. Wednesday it's sheets and towels. And so on and so forth.
Honestly, you'd think I'd be a pro at it by now.
I should know my washer and dryer like the back of my hand; I should be so efficient that I'd be able to operate a laundromat out of my own home, right?
Yeah, well, tell that to my husband who went to work last week in a stinky, yet fresh-out-of-the-dryer uniform, because yours truly forgot to put in detergent.
Yes, it's true.
I did three loads of laundry that day and forgot to add the detergent to every single one of them.
Talk about a day wasted.
But the fact of the matter is, these days, it's not surprising.
I have a new baby, a giant dog, a part-time job, and a military husband who requires a lot of upkeep in the laundry department. (The man has more uniforms than Lady Gaga.)
Lately, I'm liable to forget my head if it wasn't attached. Luckily, my baby's loud, or she might get left behind, too.
In other words, this sleep-deprived mama needs a few advantages - a few short-cuts, if you will - to keep her sanity and her laundry smelling good.
Enter the Bounce Dryer Bar.
Literally, all you do is stick it into your dryer and forget it.
And while I'm wracking my brain trying to remember where in the world I left my car keys, the Bounce dryer bar is freshening my husband's uniforms quicker than I can say, "Oops! I forgot the dryer sheets!"
Not to mention the fact that the bar repels dog hair - Did I mention that 100-pound black dog that sheds all over every fabric surface in our home? - which is basically a god-send for my husbands' dress-white uniforms and my sweet baby girl's pale pink onesies.
And speaking of that sweet baby girl, who has what can only be described as extremely sensitive skin, the Bounce dryer bar comes in a "free and clear" option. As a first-time, nervous-Nelly mama, I am extremely happy there's a product out there that leaves her clothes fresh, soft, and non-irritating.
Thanks to the Bounce dryer bar, the whole family's now walking around in clothes that actually smell clean, while Mama over here only has to remember to replace her Bounce dryer bar every few months.
Thank heavens for that.
Now if they could only invent a similar way to dispense laundry detergent...
