Wonder Woman Hauls the Laundry to the Wash-o-MaticWendy Babiak

It's true that they would wear their clothes unwashed. It's only me who's bothered by the smell or notices the stain from where they sloshed the sauce while cooking, sweet with muscatel or cares that when we dry our hands on towels they not transmit disease-producing bugs or when the sheets with too much use get foul. So I'm the one who loads them up and lugs all our things down to the laundromat. I'll find a nice old lady, and we'll chat.
