Also, since thongs are tiny you can wash like a hundred at once.
But if I tried nipple tassels, would I have to put a tiny one on my nubbin?
Sadly, most stripper clothes aren’t actually machine washable.

… come to think of it, do you think there’s a market? Machine washable stripper clothes with pockets?
But then you have to spend all that time untangling the thongs. 😛
Ah yes, the era of paper clothes, back in the 60’s. The promise of “wear them once and throw them away”, which never materialised (pun intended). The problem with paper clothes, besides weather, and throwaway fashion is one thing, they just aren’t made for all bodies. Or even most bodies, bluuuuurgh. It boggles the mind thinking about some of the people who would wear them who should never be anywhere near a paper outfit, much less some of the so-called fabric stuff (I’m looking at you, people of a certain mass merchandiser store, or trying not to look.). I wouldn’t even have worn paper when I had the figure for it, being something of a walking mess. That being said. if clothes were made out of the same stuff as the blue paper shop towels, if might be doable. You can wash and reuse those things a good ten times! They make great reusable napkins, without grease, of course.
That was a thing? That sounds massively uncomfortable. Also, really really bad for rain. You might be onto something with those shop towels though…
It was most definitely a thing! In fact, I remember being in a local Safeway store and seeing the dresses. Seems like they were sort of like a paper tablecloth thickness. I don’t remember seeing anyone wearing them, this was in Oklahoma in the late 60’s early 70’s and avant garde fashion was not a thing for most people back then in that part of the country. ‘Frisco or New York maybe, but boonie America, no. You’re right about rain (especially there), and don’t get me started on what the wind would have done to them! Wish I had bought one to show people now. I remember seeing them advertised in magazines, too.
I vaguely remember reading about paper dresses, so I unleashed the fury of Google. It looks as if it was quite the thing for awhile. http://www.glamoursplash.com/2008/11/disposable-paper-dresses-of-1967.html
I’m doing a mountain of laundry right now (I’m actually leaning on the washing machine as I type this) and the thought of tossing them all in paper recycling sounds reeeeeally attractive right now. Enough so, that my nipple tassels are swinging wildly. ;-))
That’s just the shaking of the washer as it inevitably goes off balance.
I have to babysit my washing machine. It’s not like the kind I grew up with, everything was simple and it worked forever. The one I got has fancy options and lights and crap on it and it doesn’t work worth a darn. About a third of the time the agitator never moves during the wash cycle and the spin cycle never works at all unless you manually set it to spin, wait a few minutes and then press the PAUSE button (why is that even a thing) a couple times, sometimes while manually spinning the drum to get it started. Stupid fancy high-tech garbage. But it was free and worth the effort after a year of hand-washing everything. Blue shop towel shirts would be pretty sweet.
Which just goes to show free isn’t always good, unfortunately. About fifteen years ago we bought one of those really nice front load Kenmore washers from Sears. First mistake was buying it from Sears, second was getting a fancy machine. It lasted three years, had to be completely rebuilt once (out of warranty) and several parts had to be replaced, constantly. My mom had an old Maytag from Sears in the 60’s that lasted through six kids, and my husband and I using it with two kids. I think it was still going in the late 80’s. It only had one service call in all those years, and I know my dad didn’t pay a lot for it because he worked at Sears then and got an employee discount. Modern appliances are mostly metal crap and built to die quickly, of course. Rant over. My next machine is going to not be computerized if at all possible, too much to go wrong. I’m currently using a stove that is computer run, and just being glad power outages don’t happen too often in our area. I have hand washed a lot of clothes, Sidehack, including diapers and jeans. In a tub with a clean plunger works great when you are younger, not so much fun as you age though.
