New Year; 8 New Ways to Load the Washing Machine
We’re ready to kick off the holiday season with one of our favorite holidays, Halloween. Along with all the great decorations, haunted houses, trick or treating, oh, and normal day to day life and responsibilities, finding a costume can be stressful and expensive. And if you’re anything like us, time got away from you, Halloween is a few days (or hours) away and you’re still in need of a costume. We decided to get a little creative and help you out with this annual decision. Starting with just a GETTEES tee, we came up with 6 costumes that’ll take you from costume-less to contest-winning costume (100% not guaranteed) in no time on little dime.
This technique is recommended for those times when you can’t quite figure out what that stain on your shirt is and you’re just not willing to take your chances. Just be sure to use the right form, keep your elbows tucked in and knees bent for optimal aim, ensuring a hole-in-one on the first try.
Once mastered, the granny shot can ultimately help you become a multitasking superstar and save you precious time. To execute, face away from the washing machine (watch some TV or just stare at the wall, etc.) and once the article of clothing has been tightly wadded up, aim straight back over your head and fire away. (Note: the granny shot is not limited to only grannies).
Warning: this technique may make your laundry too fresh. Moves like this are rare in the world of laundry-doing. Why? Because it takes incredible skill, obviously. Back injuries are likely with this one. Please consult with a doctor before trying this technique at home to see if it’s the right one for you.
For the classy launderers who aren’t about all the flair, but still want some pizzazz in their laundry loading. This technique involves a firm wrist-flick that may take some time to master. We recommend practicing in front of a mirror a few times before taking it to the laundry room.
Have some obstacles keeping you at a distance from the washing machine? This technique can be used when you need to deliver your clothing items to the washer with force from a distance. However, don’t be fooled, this technique is harder than it appears. We can’t confirm, but Matt Stafford probably does his laundry like this.
For those of you blessed with foot-eye and hand-eye coordination, I suggest option number six. The dropkick is executed with arms held out straight in front of the chest, moving into a very shallow squat, a vertical drop of the balled up item met by firm but gentle contact with the foot, ending with a graceful landing in the washing machine.
Time is of the essence people. Number seven is a personal favorite for when there's no time for both laundry and the gym. Why spend more time doing two separate debatably un-enjoyable activities, when you can knock them out at once? Think of all the extra time you’ll have to do literally anything besides laundry and working out. To get that sweat sesh in, just hike up your feet to the top of the washer and load away. You can even throw in some push ups if you really want to show off.
If you just love making life difficult for yourself, this is the technique for you. And if you don’t have any neck problems, you will after you try this. The key is to get a good sideways swinging motion. The release of the shirt into the washing machine can be tricky to time accurately, but you have to get that GETTEES shirt clean somehow. (We all know you’ll be re-wearing it over and over again).
