However, the slightest, tiniest leak would have a major nasty effect on my health.
On washing day, I had to leave my home and then, when the wash was done, my wife would have to air the place out for 30-60 minutes. Then, and only then, was I allowed back into my home!
We finally gave into the almighty washing machine and moved it out to our Florida Room. The washing machine is now happy, my wife is happier; and I no longer have to live in fear that the tarp will spring a leak, or that my wife would make a small mistake when she resealed it 100% after finishing the wash.
How did you make out with your washing machine?
