I think I know what I need.

An automatic clothes washer and dryer.

No, not the kind where you throw in a load of clothes and toss in some soap, then wait around while it swishes for a bit and then the clothes automatically come out clean. Clearly that brainchild has already been developed.

What I need is an automatic clothes washer and dryer that allows me to queue 2-3 (oh who am I kidding? I've got 4 kids, make that 3-4) loads at a time. And while I'm snoozing away in lala land, the machine cycles through the loads, automatically moving the wet clothes (via some sort of conveyor belt contraption thingy) into the dryer and starting the next load.

Then I wake up from dream world to find my own dream come true: 4 loads of laundry finished in my sleep.

Now, if I could figure out how to automatically get the clothes folded and put away, we might be on to something...

Ok, I showed you mine.  You show me yours.  :-)



  1. Love your idea...although I don't really mind the washer/dryer part anywhere near as much as the putting-away part. Especially kid's clothes. Ugh. My wonderful husband surprised me and did the putting-away tonight. Whew!

  2. My husband and I were just joking about how we should put multiple stackable washers and dryers in our laundry room. Our own little laundromat. Maybe we can finally catch up on laundry.

  3. Ha Yes! This picture looks very familiar as in my house looks the same way with laundry and I only have three girls, couldn't imagine a fourth, my goodness! Just to keep up with my girls laundry by folding and putting away, me and my husband just live out of our clean baskets, LOL not a good habit to get into LOL


  4. I so agree!! I get so tired of doing laundry all the time. sigh. I will say that I think when my bro was visiting another country that he said they do have one machine that washes and then drys but, he mentioned that it doesn't work very well. Maybe it is still a work in progress but, I want someone to fold and put away!! :)

  5. That would be genius! You're couch looks a lot like mine does every weekend. I don't mind doing the laundry, but I do hate folding and putting it away!

  6. Figure this one out and your money troubles will be over.

  7. Yes that is genius! I'm doing the laundry right now, and my first load earlier is back on another dry cycle because I let them sit too long and they got wrinkled, lol.

  8. I would be the first in line to buy this new invention! You build it and they will come! And by "they" I mean every single mom in the world!


Let me know what you think!
