My Front Load Washing Machine Stinks…

My front load washing machine stinks and its really ticking me off.

First of all, I never bought it, it came with the house. And honestly, I was more excited about the washing machine than I was about having more than one pooper.

FYI:  Pooper is toilet in Mommy’s Weird talk. Not in Kyla talk. That’s just crass.


My old washing machine was an apartment sized washer that was kept in a room that was not really winterized.  So, when we bought this house I really thought I was on The Jefferson’s.

Sing it with me…

“We’re Moving On Up… to the East Side….”

Weirdly, the washing machine is set up in what I call the “mudroom”, which is at the main door. As soon as anyone walks into my house all they can smell is mildew.

I am embarrassed by my front load washing machine.

First World Problem?


But irritating as all hell.

I don’t even want to hear about the washing stuff you can buy to wash your washing machine.

Are you kidding me?

It’s a washing machine.

It does not need to have its own special soap to be washed with.

Seriously, is my washing machine Lady Mary from Downton Abbey? Shall I add some lavender to it?

Yes, I know I could be doing my washing down by the river with some rocks. For the record, I think I would be very good at balancing a load of laundry on my head.
