Do you often forget to add soap when you start the washing machine...

I have found I make silly mistake like this sometimes... just like now, I washed loads of clothes, I forget to add soap the first time and the second time... how could I do that? I think I think about stuff too much when I am doing stuff... it distracted me a lot... Besides that, when I make rice in the cook steamer, I could forget to turn it on... when I make coffee, I could forget to plug it in... I am too careless... are you like this too?

How old are you now? No, I am not careless. Before I wash my clothes, I soak it in water with soap for 30 minutes then into washing machine. I make it sure that I plug it on the rice cooker before I do another thing. Maybe you are in love so you are very careless but you did not forget to login your mylot. Have a great day.

Hello mermaidivy, For sure, I am not as careless as you! I do make some careless mistakes from time to time but it seldom happen. About adding the detergent to my laundry, I always put it first when I put my dirty clothes into the machine - doesn't matter when I want to start washing

I have forgotten to add the detergent...but what makes me madder is when I forget to close the lid so it will only go through one cycle and it's usually when I need to get several done! I do also get distracted from time to time! I think it's human nature!

LOL, at least I can say I have never forgot the soap to the washing machine. I dont usually have a problem like forgetting things like that but I will be out shopping for household items and forget to pick up the stuff that was low at home... like laundry detergent and then get home and want to start a load and only then remember I need the soap in order to wash them!!! Happy mylotting.

I always put my soap powders in first then start the water, and then i add the cloths. that way i will never forget to put the soap in.

no, i haven't done this. it is because i load clothes next to soap. i know there is soap because after pouring it into the water, i try to feel the consistency. hope u won't forget the next time u wash ur clothes. here is a suggestion, just to remind u about this. post a note in the washing machine asking u a question: have i poured in soap already? well, u can just try it.

I dont usually forget the soap with the washing machine - i tend to forget to close the lid! I often press the start button on my kettle and come back later to find it still cold - realizing i forgot to plug it in.
