Simplified Speech #023 – Doin’ the laundry

In this episode, Andrew and Suzanne trade stories about a chore that everyone can relate to: doing the laundry. Since no one likes doing the laundry, today’s episode is full of colourful vocabulary and expressions that our hosts use when swapping laundry horror stories!

Fun facts

Doing your laundry is important! Did you know that the average human body produces 10 grams of salt, 40 grams of grease, and 10 grams of skin flakes every day, and that most of that waste ends up on your clothes or sheets? Expressions you’ll learn in this episode

  • To be all ears
