Dry Clean Only

A label I’ve flagrantly ignored unless completely mandatory (suits,
formal dresses, etc). $2.50 to clean a pair of pants always seemed
absurd to me, and the return time to get clothing back was always a
pain as well.

I’m regretting that I ignored this label with a pair of my favorite
work pants. I’ve washed and dryed them previously, but always in a
different washer & dryer. The new dryer thrown into the equation, and
my pants came out of the dryer at least a size smaller.

This morning was a trying time getting ready for work… turns out
I’ve shrunk not only my favorite black pants, but another pair has
also fallen casualty to the new dryer (or, more appropriately, the
setting I had the new dryer on).

Sighh… the black pants still fit, as they were fitting loose before
I shrunk them. They’re just a bit *snug*.

    I used to pay attention to those labels. Then one day I did the calculation of how much I was spending on dry-cleaning, vs how much it would cost to replace the clothes because they would wear out earlier. Dry-cleaning lost.

    And I’m really sure nobody is going to complain about you wearing tight pants. :)
