Coming Clean

Coincidentially, we happen to be in the market for a new washer. Having started the shopping process, I'm happy to report that today's laundry machines bear little resemblance to those of the 1950s. If I had to confront the Dispensomat and its array of detergent orifices on a regular basis, I think I'd go nuts in short order; five portals for soaps and softeners seems a bit much, don't you think?
