Enough with the Rockdale water

Dear editor,

Enough already! I ended up at a local laundromat on Sunday because a load of white socks was yellow, nearly brown, due to the rusty water. There seems to be no solution to the problem.

Since I watered my lawn for five hours on Saturday, the lines should have been "flushed." In addition, I ran water in both bathrooms and the kitchen sink prior to washing clothes.

The first load was darks in cold water; the second load was permanent press in warm water; then the whites. The wash water was fine, the rinse water was the problem, this time. I "salvaged" the socks by using Rit Rust Remover, meaning that that one load of clothes was washed three times altogether, twice at home, then the laundromat. Ridiculous!

Sincerely, Donna Nichter P.O. Box 1680 Rockdale
