Heck why not! Then, when the laundry is stiff and dry as stockfish, all it needs is a quick spin in the dryer to get everything in soft and wearable order.

The top and bottom photos share something in common that only a pragmatic person like myself could love. Bulky sweater sleeves are the bane of winter’s wardrobe in the home, and if there is one thing that irks me most, it’s when sleeves slide down past my elbows while I’m washing dishes, bathing the dogs, kneading bread dough, or scooping ashes from the stove. Here, they get upcycled as legwarmers, tucked into double socks for extra warmth.
