Do you remember a day when you woke up in the morning, stood in front of your wardrobe and suddenly got a panic attack, because you had ‘nothing’ to wear? Was it a month ago or only yesterday morning when you were rushing off to an important meeting? Everybody has experienced such a day at least once in their life.

The heady days of summer have now disappeared, so you can wave goodbye to the potential worse stains you can get being a spilt cocktail. Mud. It gets everywhere. That park you take a short cut through to get to work? Well now it’s practically a peat bog, with enough mud to make the Thames Estuary look like a sandy beach in comparison. Seriously, is there anything worse than having the bottom of your jeans muddy, then taking your shoes off and getting your socks muddy when you step onto the bottom of your jeans? UGH! All of these winter stains!

There are few things in the world that can cause blind human panic like accidentally dropping your underwear on a launderette floor. It is one of those things that us British people cannot fail to be embarrassed about. Yet with the population ever increasing, more people than ever are quite literally washing their dirty laundry in public.
