I’m grateful for that fresh laundry smell.

I hear you can buy Clean Laundry as a candle at Yankee Candle, and even Fresh Towels, so I can’t be the only one who feels immense comfort and satisfaction from the smell of fresh laundry.

When I lived in temperate countries, in winter, I would kneel in front of the dryer containing my clothes– didn’t matter where; at boarding school, university, when I was working but the laundry facilities were in the basement– and, the minute it finished its cycle, I would fling open the door and plunge my arms and face into the clean, crisp-dry laundry and inhale deeply. Ah, warmth! And that laundry powder smell!

I love that smell. It brings to mind bright slanted sunlight, summer, wind whipping clothes on the line, blue skies, the comforting drone of the tumbler.


Send me sunshine, light and love! :) Constructive criticism is also welcome.
