Not true! The instructions say add TWO pods to a medium or large load. We ignore the instructions...

I rarely use the dryer at all. It's only when DW catches the right dampness/dryness that the dryer gets used. YMMV
No kidding...at that price I'd hang everything possible and also buy a gas dryer to replace my electric one (cheap natural gas here)

I do use those wool dryer balls in our electric dryer...when one escapes the cat chases it down.

Heh, heh, natural gas is not so cheap on Oahu, though it is available in very limited supplies - mostly to restaurants as I recall. We do also have propane, but not available in my Condo - and not allowed as stand alone. YMMV

Speaking of which... COFFEE is the next big lie... But before you "Coffee Achievers" unfriend me, relax, and know I'm one of you, and please hear me out... Next time use 2 coffee filters and half the number of "heaping scoops" recommended by the coffee bag... YMMV, but your bougie coffee budget will thank me.😆👍☕

I used to do this every time I washed my hair. Then my wife taught me to just lather once, longer, and ensure that the scalp is the target of the shampoo (and the hair for the conditioner). Now I use half as much, in less time!

Hmm, I haven’t had OJ in many years! I guess, I dilute my water with water?

Yes, I am a lifelong diluter, going back to Koolaid when I was a kid. Always extra water and less sugar. Same with alcohol and mixed drinks. I had juice container i used for concentrate that was oversized and always added the extra water. I don't tolerate caffeine well, so I am thin on grounds and lots of hot water. Seems my family has a taste for plain hot water also... several have mentioned in family tree.

DM always made our KoolAid with half sugar.
I'm sure it was out of frugality but also the fear of diabetes.

My dad was a dentist and always made us use just a 1/2 cup of sugar. When we went to vacation bible school and had THEIR koolaid and iced sugar cookies - heaven! ...literally.

No dryer sheets here - I switched to wool dryer balls. They help dry the clothes and work great!
