What are some basic ideas or tips for washing and drying clothing without a problem? What temperature water do you use to clean white clothing and colors? Do you sometimes take your laundry to the dry cleaners?
A. Listen to the recording and answer the questions.
Woman: Someone ran a pen through the dryer, and now all of my clothes AND the dryer are a real mess.
Woman: Listen. I had two of my new shirts, a pair of shorts, and some running socks, and one of your work shirts.
Woman: Call your friends and tell them you're going to be late. And try using this hairspray. It'll help get the ink stains out of the dryer.
Man: Oohhh. Well, yeah, I guess it was my fault. Um, how about if I take you to buy some new clothes after I get back?
Woman: Okay. I'd appreciate that, but please, be more careful next time. Man: Okay. Sorry. Woman: Love ya.
