Sometimes, just sometimes, you get it in you head that laundry is a self-replicating life form. No, don't laugh. It fits all of the parameters. It has a defined form and structure(cloth), specific ecological niche (obligatory parasite). It has a defined subspecies(shirts, pants, underwear et al) and allows itself to change (evolve) in terms of external stimulus (fashion). It has requisite energy inputs (washing machine and soap), and lifecycle (clean, in pile, dirty, being washed).
