================================================
Heat another Tub for Soaking In

Paste this over your washer and dryer, next time when you think things are bleak, read it again, kiss that washing machine and dryer, and give thanks.

First thing each morning you should run and hug your washer and dryer, also your toilet---those two-holers used to get mighty cold!


For you non-southerners - wrench mean rinse.
