Harv has been wearing leg wraps on his hinds since April, due to his incontinence problem. I wash his filthy, urine-saturated wraps every day using a bucket, a hose, and a bottle of woolite. I've stayed on top of the cleaning, and the used wraps are cleaned within a half-hour of removing them. This way they are dry by the next day and ready for use..
That was fine this spring and summer. It's too cold to do that now.
How can I handle the washing needs now that outdoor washing is not an option? Several issues:
- It's too stinky and disgusting to wash at a laundromat.
- It's too cold to wash outside.
- There is too little volume to justify a separate load every day.
Bob's power of veto
What I need is to be able to wash Harv's wraps every two days in our washer. I brought this up to him casually about ten days ago. He was pretty vehement in his response -- NO! No week old urine-soaked wraps in the same washer we use for our clothes!
Usually a wistful "poor Harvster" is enough to sway Bob. Not this time. He refuses to allow the wraps in the garage, much less put them in our washer.
Okay, so I snuck them in and washed them Tuesday while Bob was asleep. Laundry at 1am. What I need now is a long term solution. Ideas?
