Tissue trauma

Ok so it’s only a trauma in my little world, but I absolutely hate it when I pull the washing out of the machine to hang on the line outside and find those dreaded white flakes all over the clothes.

What’s worse is that I can’t even blame it on another it had clearly exploded out of the pocket in my shorts, my navy shorts and the entire dark load of clothes that I’d just washed. It hasn’t happened for years.

If this happened when the boys were younger my threat was that you had to  pick off each piece of tissue from everyones clothes including undies. Worked a treat, it virtually never happened.

I have no one to blame but myself, I’ve hung the clothes on the line and hope there is enough breeze to maybe blow it all off ….. but I don’t like my chances.

Anyone have any methods for dealing with my tissue trauma?

    I’ve ended up hanging washing after a good shaking and hoping for the best, rehashing but that doesn’t always work , and trying the dryer! I think basically you just have to wear the dang clothes and let the flakes come off naturally. At least then, others know they’re not the only ones that miss the tissue!

    Seriously I think I had the best luck with shaking well(which means the laundry floor needs sweeping after) then washing again and drying them in the dryer. Fortunately I’ve not had the dreaded tissues in the wash for years.

    Jennifer I waited until the clothes were dry then dampened my fingers and rubbed most of it away. It was easy enough though a little time consuming lol. I will be more careful in future.

    Tissues & payslips can sure make a mess. I’ve used contact to get it off

      You’re right contact or even sticky tape or maybe even those pet hair rolling brushes would work. Good thinking.
