While cycling laundry a silly tune was stuck in my head and some new lyrics came to me and I must share the pain with you all.
♫The Laundry Song♫
This is the chore that never ends.

Repeat ad infinitum, just like the laundry. I know you aren’t here for an earworm, you are here for laundry tips and tricks. Good news, you are in the right place. We’ve got everything from why the temperature of your water matters to the strange reason your white shirt or underwear may be turning blue.
