Last chance to enter the Group Effort Pay it Forward contests, which all end today. There were still a couple more contests added late yesterday, and so you're practically a shoo-in to win those if you quick go enter.
I'm spending the 3-day weekend trying to figure out why my house reeks. It REEKS. It's a sour-milk kind of reek, so I'm suspicious of the laundry piles, which are indeed hilly. But, like Jonniker's, my washing machine has been repeating on me recently. The other day, I got out of the shower, dried off with a fresh-from-the-dryer towel, and had to get back in the shower and re-shower, because the towel left reek all over me.
Why the sudden reek? Is it my new laundry soap? I got a bunch of Tide on clearance, and it does smell kind of like men's deodorant (it's a mountain-related scent), but that shouldn't be too reeky, and I stopped using the Gain fabric softener I didn't like.
I'm going through Jonniker's comment section now, looking for more substances to throw at the problem: so far I'm armed with baking soda, vinegar, and bleach.
