I finally discovered a situation in which a dryer is more than a little bit helpful, my friends. I suppose it’s been about a year since we got rid of our antiquated, electricity-sucking machine, and I confess I’ve missed it from time to time, but today, I am brought to my knees.
We have contracted a case of head lice.
In addition to the vast quantities of bedding and towels and whatnot that are all being laundered in one day, head lice are killed by moderate heat, which makes the dryer very useful even for things that can’t be washed.
Like pillows. And favorite stuffed animals.
Yes, my friends, this is a genuine dryer emergency. And there is a trip to Lowes in our immediate future.
