I borrowed this Book "You can save the Planet" and agree very much with it. It talked about using the washing machine.
Today, I did my laundry and my bedding. I laughed to myself. For a long time, there was a tiny rip of one inch in my fitted sheet, and I had ignored it. Today when I was hanging it up, the tiny rip has grown to one meter.
My very wise dad used to say," A stitch in time saves nine." I really like this bed sheet set, so I will be stitching nine stitches instead of a quick job had I heeded my dad's advice.
