"The Laundry Lesbian you've seen on TikTok"--cover.
This is where you get down and dirty : Organizing ; Cleaning ; Fixing, preventing, installing, and upgrading -- This is where you wish your bank account filled up as fast as your laundry basket : Sorting and washing ; Drying ; Stain removal ; Stripping ; Bluing ; Ironing ; The art of putting everything away ; Repairing -- This is where you look after the machines you spent so much money on : Dishwashers ; Washers and dryers ; Anything else with a filter.
"Everything you need to know about laundry, cleaning, and basic home repairs--from the TikTok star who sparked the "bluing" laundry trend, taught you to fold a fitted sheet, and showed you the proper way to use your caulk (gun)"-- back cover.
"Melissa Dilkes Pateras is the most competent housekeeper/DIY-project master/home repair genius that you've ever been sexually attracted to. Once she followed her kids onto TikTok and began sharing her years of knowledge, she found a community eager for her approachable, often tongue-in-cheek advice on everything from caulking to why color-coded closets are a spiritual experience. She doesn't care about transforming our homes into a minimal, beige Instagram post. Melissa sees housekeeping as a form of anxiety relief, self-care, and self-esteem-building. She wants us to feel able to take care of our homes in a way that works for us-so we can relax and feel confident inviting others over; in short, to say, "come on in""-- Provided by publisher.
