A dirty dilemma

Right now we’re facing one big homelessness-related hurdle we’re struggling to overcome – about seven garbage bags worth of dirty laundry we were unable to do at our house simply because with the abrupt loss of bankruptcy protection and foreclosure of our home, we had no time to wash and dry clothing. As it was, we barely had enough time to empty our home of our appliances, furniture, and most important belongings – and that was with the help of my mother, my two brothers, Dan’s two brothers, and our best friend, Jason (I will never be able to thank them enough for all they did for us that day).

It’s an embarrassing plea, but a necessary plea – I need to take our clothing to a laundromat since our washer and dryer are now in storage. Even with the cheapest laundromat in town, we’re looking at needing a minimum of $40.00 to clean everything. Alyssa is the only one of us four who still has entire “outfits” – Ryan is down to his last pair of underwear and will have to borrow from Daniel or myself, Daniel has no more pants, and I’m going to have to borrow underwear and jeans from my mother.

Please, if you could help us with this, especially so Alyssa and Ryan will at least have clean clothing, Daniel and I would be very, very grateful. My PayPal address is I’m more than willing to show laundromat receipts and pictures to verify the money is being spent on that and nothing else. Thank you.

    I’m sorry to hear about the situation you are in right now, but I’m kind of confused — you can simply handwash underwear and other necessary items (especially as it is summertime now and so clothing is lighter). Get a basin, fill it with water, dump the clothes in and put in some detergent, and then rub and scrub the clothes, then air dry on hooks (or put up a line outside and hang clothes). Or, bring the clothes into the shower with you and wash it then while you’re washing yourself. People were able to wash clothes before laundry machines and dryers, and they’re better for the clothes/environment.

    I’ve sent you a little something, it’s not much but it’s what I can afford. Hoping that better times are ahead for you & your family x
