Sometimes...when something is less expensive, it's because it really is cheap.
Sometimes...it's better not to clean.
Sometimes...when something is labeled "dry clean only", even though it's cotton, you should dry clean it instead of opting to wash it in the machine.
Sometimes..."all I need is the air that I breeeeathe, and to looooove yoooouuuu."
Sometimes...air drying is the better choice.
Sometimes...drapes decide to have a mutiny and try to display their owner's personality (dorky).
Sometimes...six inches shorter makes a huge difference.
Sometimes...I wish companies would pre-shrink their fabric.
Sometimes...when you decide to wash one set of drapes, you should wait and see what the result is before washing the back window set, instead of doing them simultaneously.
Sometimes...the back set shrinks as much as the front set.
Sometimes...you just have to "embrace the awkwardness". (Thanks for the phrase, Suz! I need to embroider that on a pillow; it's my life's motto.)
