Wash And Wear

 

Pondering Wash And Wear

 

Wash And Wear  The advantages of things that are wash and wear are numerous.  While we may think of things that are connected to clothing, the extent and reach of aspects related to wash and wear go far beyond your closet.  Maybe those referenced aspects are tailor-made just for you. 

 

it really isn't that much of a stretch to link the concept of wash and wear to other things.  The convenience factor in life is important and that factor certainly plays a part in the appeal of wash-and-wear.  How often do we see that term "convenience" when it comes to real estate...especially regarding location?  And location really does matter...so much it is often repeated three times location...location...location.  Is it done for emphasis?  Or just in case you didn't hear it the first time?  I wonder.  

 

Repetition often matters.  And you likely have previously heard this quip.  Perhaps numerous times:

 

She has a wash and wear bridal gown

                                                                                                    Henny Youngman 

 

I couldn't resist.  Well, I guess I could resist but why?  Wash and wear came to mind for seemingly no reason and while quotes on that particular term are rather limited...sometimes  finding one seems like it is just the right fit.  Right now.  And for this moment.  For a bit of levity.. .albeit a small bit.  And I believe wash and wear has some relevance to real estate and other things beyond what we may typically consider when we think of the term.

Hmmmm Michael- We had a friend many years ago who seemed to have wash and wear girl friends. So much so that we asked that he not ask us to double date with his "new" girlfriend until they had been on at least 6 dates. It was too hard to keep up with their names. (did I digress or go totally off track?)

"She has a wash and wear bridal gown."  I know someone that quote would apply to.  I'm going to send it her way!

Morning Michael.

We've all seen it, I have a friend who goes through vehicles faster than I change underwear. One day it's the best vehicle he's ever owned, the next day he is at the car lot getting another one.

Good morning, Michael. Loved that photo of the pooch. I'm all about "wash and wear." These days, if it can't go into the clothes washer or the dishwasher I don't buy it!

That Henny Youngman joke must be a classic Michael. Cleaners would not survive on our business, as Larry and I are all about wash and wear...or throw it out!

James Dray - purchasing a vehicle as often as underwear.  Hmm...an expensive habit.  

Nina Hollander - I like that image too.   I thought it "fit" for this post.  

Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400 - so many of the "wash and wear" quotes I found were kind of drab this one "popped" for me.  

Kevin J. May - some stains are definitely persistent.  On clothes and in life.

Henny Youngman was one of my favorites. He and Rodney Dangerfield had such a way with a phrase!

Hmm, your ponderings often make me ponder for a bit about your ponderings, which is not a bad thing at all.

Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty - when I saw this quote I thought the author might be Rodney Dangerfield.  I often think of he and Henny Youngman as quite similar in style and delivery.

Brian England - I guess there could be some harm associated with reading such posts.  Maybe I should include a warning...Just thinking...

Michael, I echo the "smart" terminology Sheri used, as it is a bit overused in today's market, but the market does lean that way.
