This week is a backwards Works For Me Wednesday, where I ask you to solve a problem I've been having.
This is a recent problem, just since the weather got cooler. I switched out our percale sheets for new flannel sheets and a new flannel duvet cover from LL Bean (along with our down duvet). With Tom's dust and mite allergies, I HAVE to wash all bed clothes once a week in hot water. Any time I don't wash the sheets and the duvet cover, about the 9th or 10th day, Tom starts complaining about being stuffy and not able to breathe.
Anyway, since we switched to the flannel bed clothes, my problem is that everything gets rolled up in a ball in the dryer, and when the dryer goes off, nothing is dry because everything got rolled on itself. I rarely had this problem with our percale sheets and duvet cover. Now, I often have to unroll the sheets and duvet cover 3-4 times before everything gets dry. All I'm putting in at one time is a queen bottom sheet, duvet cover and two pillowcases, so the dryer is definitely not too full.
Please, give me wisdom! Leave your solutions to this problem in the comments area. And if this problem has you stumped, but you want to provide solutions to others in need, visit Shannon's site, where more bloggers are asking for help.
