Even though National Laundry Day and Tax Day often land together on April 15, remember to keep these two activities separate. Anybody who has ever recovered a $20 bill from the washing machine knows why.
That said, we generally don’t love doing laundry. However, we’re thrilled when it’s done. Think clean clothes, fresh sheets, and that special fresh laundry scent. (Do you have a favorite dryer sheet fragrance? If you must know, we here at National Today are partial to something in a lavender.)
The word “laundry” comes from two Welsh words, “lloon,” or crazy, and “dyrte,” or dirty. The Welsh jokingly called the English “lloon dyrtes” and with time it morphed into “laundered.”
