2020: The year of face masks and washing machine dresses

I know what you’re thinking. This is a big joke, right? But, alas, it’s not! This is an actual decorating trend, most likely stemming from the 70s and making its grand return in 2020.

Because this year isn’t already weird enough.

The point of these gowns? To disguise the ugliness of the appliance. And we thought using contact paper to cover your washer was bad…

A little bit of lace for your laundry

Retailer AliExpress describes these lace and chiffon coverings as a “lace dustproof protector” and a “lace waterproof sunscreen washing machine cover” (uh sunscreen??). But let’s not sugar coat it. It’s a nightie. A lace nightie. For your washing machine.

Internet reacts accordingly

As expected, when photos of the washing machine dresses hit social media, people had A LOT to say.

“Looks like the washer is wearing a negligee!” said one. RIGHT!!!

Another joked: “I imagine when the machine hits the spin cycle, it would look like it’s doing a shimmy in that frock!”

“These look like something my granny would’ve loved so I’d get one just for nostalgia sake,” added another.

Whatever shall my washer wear?

There are all different colours and patterns to choose from too and to match all your laundry decor needs. A pastel blue, a racy maroon, a spicy pink… And starting at just $14 too.

However, will you choose?
