Lee opened his package of thirteen men's handkerchiefs, priced $5.00. The option was six for $3.00. Not being quick at math, I told him to get the larger pack.
After looking at the packaging, he read the notice on the package:
Handkerchiefs are reusable (really?) and do not waste environmental resources.
65% polyester 35% cotton
Machine wash cold. (No heat for killing germs?) Gentle cycle. (They must be very delicate.)
Only non-chlorine bleach when needed. (Who uses bleach?)
Tumble dry low. Warm iron when needed. (Iron? What's that?)
I doubt if we will be that careful of these new things. They will surely last in good condition until he loses them.
