Do you think maybe we should all just go back to the old days when we washed our clothes in rivers and streams?

By the looks of the photos you’re about to see, I think that might not be the worst idea in the world.

We’ve all had our laundry mishaps during our lives and that’s why these photos are going to make you cringe in a big way. Because you can feel them DOWN IN YOUR BONES.

So let’s all say a special prayer for these people as they continue their journey to laundry perfection…we all know it can be a long and dangerous road.

Let’s take a look…

1. Clean up on Aisle 9!

That’s a HUGE mess.

2. Time to buy a new phone…

Those things ain’t cheap!

3. I don’t see the problem here.

Fits like a glove!

This is very sad…

And a costly one…

Call in the Haz-Mat crew!

Just sayin’…
