Tonight the Platypus had to take tools to his webbed feet and fix the family washing machine. It seems that too many items in the basket wore on the drive belt and it broke. Fixing it wasn't all that expensive, but was a bit labor intensive.
Folks, it's time we did our washing machines and dryers a favor and stop loading them with so many clothes! Let's go naked more often and hang up those towels for re-use instead of leaving them on the floor or sending them to the hamper after one use. Do more naked and you'll save time and money on detergent plus utilities. Oh and the expense of worn drive belts.
Your washer will thank you. So will your body!
