DAY 114: How to Clean Practically Anything

It wasn't anymore broken than it had been, which is not great. It turns out the dryer vent also had become disconnected. Mom undertook the challenge of climbing in the no-mans-land that is the space between the washer and dryer.

Luckily, one of the first things she found was what we call the "grab-nabbers" which are a vestige from one of my dad's hip surgeries. They were handy for pulling items out from the back of appliances. The first thing she pulled out is in the laundry basket in the foreground...it had us all in stitches of irony.

Third, hilarious find!
