Anyway, I was so excited about my new washer and dryer. They were front-load with the little windows you can see in... so exciting for someone who hasn't run their own household for very long... well, maybe exciting for anyone with a household. But that isn't the point. The point is, they were new, and shiny, and environmentally friendly... and I could finally do laundry in my own house without having to worry about Mark's grandmother sneaking down to the basement to fold my underwear when I wasn't looking.
Flash forward two years: All of my laundry smells. Especially my towels. And for some reason, no one else can smell it in the clean laundry but me. Last night, I presented Mark with a towel.
Me: "Smell this!"
Mark: "It smells like a towel..."
(We have had this conversation about towels, blankets, wash cloths... you get the picture.)
So, I finally got on Google... my worst enemy and best friend. And Google told me that I might have *gasp* mold in my washer.
I marched straight into my laundry room, whipped open the washer door and... lo and behold. THIS is what I found.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? OMFG!!! DISGUSTING!
I am now on a quest to get rid of this. Any suggestions? Tips? Aside from crawling under a rock... but that is SO what I want to do...
