warning booooring. laundry related.

have visitors to stay the weekend, one of them is my mum.

she just had a strop because she doesn't want to sleep in bedding that hasn't been boil washed.

I only wash bedding hot if there is a reason (d&v, worms, athletes foot...)

aibu to book her into a hotel?

Just tell her it was boil washed.

Moussemoose Fri 19-May-17 18:48:41

Yeah a hotel in Yemen

Kimonolady Fri 19-May-17 18:49:06

Not gonna lie, I'd chuck her in a bloody boil wash.
YANBU.

Trifleorbust Fri 19-May-17 18:49:33

Oh tell her to sod off.

well that's nice....she thinks you are a clarty low life of a housewife! end her home.Or lie and say you thought she said something else, and OF COURSE you boil wash alllll the things, always.

I 60 wash bedding and towels as standard, with the occasional 90+ thrown in for the hell of it.

she was taking of going to a laundrette..(I don't have a dryer)

TondelayaDellaVentamiglia Fri 19-May-17 18:50:36

Oh god moussemouse, that's killed me 😂

Does anybody boil wash anything anymore? Really not necessary with bio detergents etc.

StealthPolarBear Fri 19-May-17 18:51:47

The last two washing machines we've had haven't had a boil wash - only gone up to 60

EllaHen Fri 19-May-17 18:52:02

High five - no need to host.

A boil wash? Will no-one think of the environment?

RedBugMug Fri 19-May-17 18:53:10

she has issues.
hope she is just tired from travelling and tomorrow is better.
I'm hiding in the loo whilst dc beat her at ludo

RedBugMug Fri 19-May-17 18:54:44

I usually use the eco programmes of my washer. but they only go up to 40.

Bluntness100 Fri 19-May-17 18:56:32

How did you not know she had these issues and were not prepared for a simple lie that yes they were boil washed,,,?

Blimey01 Fri 19-May-17 18:56:52

Yep just ask which hotel she would like you to book for her. She might suddenly get over the strop.

My mil brings her own bedding with her when she stayshmm

good luck for the rest of the visit OP - sounds like you need it!

RedBugMug Fri 19-May-17 18:59:02

I know she always boil washed everything, but she hardly ever visits (first time in 5 years)

DonttouchthatLarry Fri 19-May-17 19:00:17

I wash everything on 30!

NavyandWhite Fri 19-May-17 19:00:39

Does she think you're the unclean?!

Crunchymum Fri 19-May-17 19:02:55

I must confess I was bedding on 90c and towels too.

Although I probably don't wash them as often as some. Current bedding been on 2 weeks (unusual as I am normally a once a weeker!!)

harderandharder2breathe Fri 19-May-17 19:14:57

I've never boil washed anything in my life

I do everything on 40, have once or twice in my life done towels or bedding at 60. I don't think my washing machine even goes higher than that!

NotAPuffin Fri 19-May-17 19:21:30

I wash my bedding and towels at 60 but the standard wash that I do everything else in is only 20 shock

Mummyoflittledragon Fri 19-May-17 19:22:52

Anyone remember the thread about hotel bedding a few weeks ago? The one, where it was common practice in some hotels to not change bed linen between guests if the previous guest had only stayed one night. I'd send her to one of these hotels. grin

2017SoFarSoGood Fri 19-May-17 19:23:59

How incredibly rude she is being. I'd tell her she is welcome to leave.

BOIL! Bring your own bloody bedding if you are that fussy. The nerve of some guests.
