There's a special offer sign in the window of the dry cleaners in Borough High St offering to clean
1 sheet, 1 duvet cover and 2 pillowcases for £7-50. Now assuming you wash your bed linen
once a week, that's £390 a year not to mention the hassle of taking it there and back.
Who has their bed linen dry cleaned when no-one irons it anyway, or am I just a lazy b******.
And assuming you wash your towels in a washing machine why not chuck in the
sheets etc; at the same time. Even if you have top quality Egyptian cotton I would prefer to
stick it in my own machine for a better and safer wash.
The things that occupy your mind on a cold saturday afternoon!!!
Yes you're a lazy b.....std, but indeed the energy necessary to get out the ironing board and whip the iron over the pillow cases is not so great as to make £7.50 anything but one colossal rip off. However, some people have more money than sense..so I guess they're the ones this shop is looking for.
I think it's great - beats the hell out of having the entire flat draped in sheets and towels drying every weekend, and takes two minutes to drop off at the laundry - not to mention the fact that at the weekends, my time is worth considerably more than £7.50! But as for the ironing thing....I never get around to ironing my clothes let alone the bed linen! I have a friend who irons socks....how weird is that!
IMO, it's not always convenient to drop off and pick up washing at the dry cleaners, even if you're not concerned about the money.
However, in my dream life, I will have ironed bedlinen. Obviously (given that I'd never waste the time ironing sheets) I'm not excessively bothered about ironed bedlinen, but in an ideal world I do think it adds a little luxury, and bed can never be too comforting a place.
