Just follow the washing instructions. If they don't dry in a 60 minute cycle just try throwing them in for a another 30 or whatever. QED.

Edit:

Some fabric softener could help or washing liquid with fabric softener already added

We already had that on the 7th; 9" by my gaff. Today it's supposed to be 3-6" by us (NE) and 1-3" by Chicago from what I heard. The worst of it will hit the St. Louis area, so that might be why they are calling it that. They're looking at 6-12" there.

The snow can f*** off, as far as I'm concerned though. I'm sick of looking at the bloody stuff.

In a few months you'll be complaining about the heat.

I know but at least I don't have to get up at 5am to clean the heat from my driveway; at least I can drive in the heat without having to watch all the other twats drive like worse twats than they normally do.

I like the cold, it's just the snow I'm sick of.
