Examples of laundry in a Sentence

  1. George Madhavan:

    That means that ideally, we don't sell you water. We rent you water. We take it back, we clean it. We're like a laundry service. Then you can multiply your supply of water many, many times, the water that you drink today is the same water that dinosaurs drank. We don't create or destroy water. It just goes around. So we are using engineering to shorten the loop.

  2. Sylvia Ashton-Warner:

    No other job in the world could possibly dispossess one so completely as this job of teaching. You could stand all day in a laundry, for instance, still in possession of your mind. But this teaching utterly obliterates you. It cuts right into your being essentially, it takes over your spirit. It drags it out from where it would hide.

  3. Julie Morgenstern:

    Two, automate the predictable. Shopping, cleaning, laundry, cooking – just simplify those routines, schedule them in your day or your week and then stop thinking about them, and three – most importantly – make sure that the question you ask when you get home after a long day of work is not, ‘Why is this house a mess?’ but ‘Hey guys, how was your day?’ Starting every evening with love and calm will set the tone for a peaceful, stress-free evening.

  4. Samir Lakhani:

    I remember quite vividly a mother bathing her newborn in a basin filled with laundry powder and water, it's an image I'll never get out of my mind.

  5. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

    Radical methods of treatment of vices. It's just a joke. Don't take it seriously. Lust is a chastity belt Pride - whip Anger is a gag Gluttony - cage Greed is a leash Envy - a mask on the eyes Despondency is sex I want to work for you, well, throw off your resume, we will add you to the reserve, you are the fifteenth in line, we will hire you in seven hundred years, I hope you are a long-liver. Depilator, shearing sheep in the toilet. Northerners, I want to lock up this bambi who likes to open windows in winter, in the freezer, break the key in the keyhole, you will see how the sun melts the earth. These are the keys. What are the keys? From the bank. What bank? From a sperm bank. What? Well, I'm wearing a chastity belt. And often you take a loan from the bank (masturbation). Or replenish the deposit with abstinence. I thought you had a mouse there. And no matter how much you fiddle with your pod, your hands are probably shaking like an alcoholic. You're too tall for her, hold on to your spermatozars. Is it worth looking for a girl? Try, experiment, feel, let the girls feel. You're an artist? Yes. Do you draw money? No landscapes. Ugh, I mean cool. Damn my ex. Beckons with the middle finger. Damn my ex. Beckons with the middle finger. Do not hang on the intercom, open the door for me, wait for the second line. Fifty degrees of heat, your sweaty things on the battery, you could do the laundry, didn't drink me. Minus seventy degrees, the Chinese sat in the icy water, it's like icy lava, he sat down with his Chinese bells in the water, congratulations on you girl. Are you a prostitute? You've been burned out at work today or you've been burned out. Pulling hairs from your wife's beard, making wishes for a new life. Author: Musin Almat Zhumabekovich
