    My wife has been blaming me for making the towels smell for years - I almost want to show her this thread, but then she would know about the forum.  Hmmm.

    I like the idea of a mixed pair and like the idea of a simplified washer.  I could see getting a SQ washer and a samsung or other dryer.  We bought our Kenmore FL's 15 years ago (rebranded duets) and steam wasn't available but as Cazzy mentions, the wrinkle away setting would be great.  We have had to have a few repairs on them, but nothing major, a bad thermocouple in the drier, drain pump replacement and front gasket replacement in the washer, but all modest for 15 years.
    Do you use fabric softener? It leaves surfactant on the fibers(that's why the fabric feels softer) which "waterproofs" the fibers, decreasing absorbency and also making it harder for the towels to dry, leading to mildew. That's why I LOL at all those dumb Snuggle ads with the bear fondling the towels. That's going to stink after getting wet, Teddy Ruxpin.

    I like his version of coffee. Check it out when you have time.  
    Will do Scottie, thanks.
    If you do, don't skip the step where he says to pour cold water down the spout. The cold water trick sinks the grains just like he says.  
    I will try this on my portable induction burner named Bertha, which gets "rollin'" quick, maybe ladle it out. 

    Hard to beat the Bunn though.
    I'd probably only try it camping. I see zero improvement over French Press, other than pour-over or Aeropress. If it's not Baroque, why fix it?

    One of the keys to clean clothes:


    Meh.

    The BIGGEST reason for uncleaned clothes is the "well, more must be better" mentality people seem to have with cleaning products. Too much detergent leads to residue left on clothes that looks dingy/dirty, which is enhanced in FL machines due to less water used. My clothes have never been cleaner, energy star or not.
