A date with laundry

Last week, I went drove over an hour to meet up with Tiffany from SITS Girls.  Tiffany asked me to help her do a video.  I should have known that we were going to have another adventure making the video.  Tiffany and I have known each other for a little over a year now, and we have so many stories to tell.

Laundry Mat

Can you guess where we went?

Well Tiffany had her first experience with a laundry mat.  We brought  some of Tiffany’s dirty laundry (literally, stained and everything) and Tide detergent and Tide Stain Release to test them out and remove some stains.

We should have known that it was not going to be a simple task, with the two of us together.  Within minutes of taking our first video, an employee at the laundromat, whom shall be known as “Laundry Guy” approached us.  Tiffany thought that Laundry Guy was going to tell us that we could not videotape anything in the laundromat.

Laundry guy said nothing about the video camera.  Oh no….he made a classic comment, that even WE could not make up.  It was soo hilarious, I had to tweet it out via Twitter.  He actually used a pick-up line on us.

Laundry Pick-Up Line

Seriously, Tiffany stuck her nose in her iPad and I started tweeting just to avoid Laundry Guy. He just would not go away. He kept rambling on and on and on….but I was cracking up to the responses that I got on Twitter in reply to my last tweet.

We had so much fun shooting the video, and I even made a cameo appearance. I wish I would have known that I was going to be on camera. I would have put on some make-up. Seriously, I looked scary…

The Laundry Guy never left us alone. While we were waiting for the laundry to dry, Laundry Guy decided to come over to discuss the Jackass movies with us. He said that they should remove the warnings at the beginning of the movies. Seriously, it was so random. I was thinking that perhaps these warnings are for people like Laundry Guy. After all of the laundry we done, we hurried out of there.  Of course, Laundry Guy sorta followed us to the door to say goodbye.  He said “Goodbye Blogger” to Tiffany and “Goodbye Vegas” to me. Really Vegas? What the heck?

Seriously, Tide Stain Release is awesome. I was amazed at the results that Tiffany got with her stains. We had t-ball on Saturday, and Angry Kid came home with some grass stains on his pants. I threw the pants in the wash and went I went to grab the laundry soap, I thought, “I wish we had some of that Tide Stain Release.” Well guess what? Angry Julie tends to overspend and overbuy when it comes to cleaning products. I actually had a brand new package of Tide Release in the cupboard. And the results, AMAZING!

So PLEASE go over to SITS Girls and check out the post and video that Tiffany did for Tide. It is awesome!

LMAO -- what a great (ha) pick up line. If I had a pal to do laundry with I might enjoy it too! You two are a riot. :) Meanwhile here I sit reading blogs and blogging (and playing Zuma) allowing my boys to rot their brains with video games all because laundry is boring and I'm avoiding the mountain that needs to be folded and put away.

So he thinks you guys are dirty? WTF?? That is so funny. I love how you make laundry fun. You're my kind of girl. Want to meet somewhere in the middle of the country at a dry cleaner? It'll be fun! :) Thanks so much for stopping by to comment on my little jailbird. Sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you. Since our little escapade to pick up Cooper at the police station it's been tough to find the time to get back to everyone. Sorry, but your sweet words on the matter made it easier to get through. Lots of yummy love, Alex aka Ma What's For Dinner

Sounds like a fun time. And maybe it's time to change up my detergent.

Hilarious! I love SITS and it sounds like you and Tiffany had SO much fun. My dog recently walked all over my favorite tan pants with red clay mud stains on her paws. It was a nightmare!! Heading out to get some Tide, like now!

confession: I've never been in a laundromat in my lifetime... never. (college dorm laundry doesn't count right?) which is apparently why I only get ridiculous pick up lines from the bug guy... because being told I look good for the mom of a teenager by a guy who is probably 24 really isn't that great a feeling...
