I've taken some extremely soiled items to my local dry cleaners. They are miracle workers.

If they bought a special shirt while they were there, try to save that.

Burn the rest and listen to it scream.

Dude, you're supposed to remove the clothing first.

OK, I read her name as "Anal" the first time around.

She thought about going back to physical therapy, but admits that she didn't want a 9-to-5 commitment.
So, this is just a little hobby, so she can feel productive for a bit.

So far, interest has been encouraging (she had four clients last year; 28 have signed on for this summer), but it's not booming yet.

I'm guessing she'll lose interest in this project within another year.  How much did she have to pay for this article?

She just hated the stains little Jason would come home with. The bits of camper were the worst.

When she finishes your laundry and returns it, she drops her pants and reveals she's a man!

/obscure?

"Anat Cohen hunted for a laundry company that would come to her kids' sleepaway camp at the end of their stay, pick up their belongings, and clean them."

Has this lady never heard of a dry cleaner? Everywhere I've ever lived they're usually 4-5 in every neighborhood. While they probably wouldn't pick the items up, they'll certainly wash the stuff for you and have it ready the next day.

Would it really kill you to play some part in the raising of your children?

Burning is preferable as burying that shiat means nothing will grow there for years

You just know a product has that special zing when it was invented by an Area Mom rather than some no-name corporate scientists working in a lab with computers and stuff.

Let me give y'all a clue.  Last year we sent on of my sons to an exclusive camp in the woods near San Francisco and he came back with bed bugs.  Burn the camp clothes and throw out the pack.

Are there no Chinese laundries in Philadelphia?  The one I went to when I was in college were a bunch of arcane wash-wizards.

/of course, they're probably not all Chinese-owned anymore
//but back then, they were

Landromats do a lot more than launder clothes, especially for the mob that own the "owners."
