Coolest DIY Laundry Team Costume - Washer, Dryer, Laundry Baskets, Repairman, Sock Gnome, and Maid
Washer/Dryer Costume: - Two cardboard boxes wrapped in white paper - 2 Tupperware bowls for the front loader look (Hot glued to box) - Copper pipe insulation for around the doors - Foil, candy, etc for buttons (Use your imagination with this one)
Laundry Basket Costumes: - Cut a hole in the bottom so your child can step through the basket. Make sure the hole isn't too big, because you want it to stay above their hips and not keep falling down.) - Add t-shirts and socks to basket to complete the look
Sock Gnome Costume: - Apron with Iron on letters that say "Sock Gnome" (Be sure and stuff the apron with mismatched socks!) - Felt for hat and skirt - Hot Glue for hat (Just make into a cone and hot glue the seams) - Stick on velcro for skirt (Wrap felt around the "gnome" and place stick on velcro at the hips to hold the skirt on) - I used Iron on letters for hat that say "Who's your Gnomey"
Maid Costume: - Apron (I used Iron on letters that say "Maid" for each other) - Bandanna
Repairman Costume: - Tool belt - Iron on patches for shirt (I used a Sharpie pen and wrote my hubby's name on one and wrote "Mr. Fix It" on the other.
Have fun with being creative with these DIY Laundry Team Costumes! =)

Homemade Captain Static and Super Softener Couple Costume
Captain Static is the most insidious of all evil-doers. Posing as an ordinary man most of the time, he strikes when you are in the biggest rush, when you have an important meeting or need to stand in front of a crowd. ZAP!!! You've got static cling! Your boss and co-workers snicker as you go about your day unaware that your son's underpants are stuck to the back of your blazer.
Super Softener comes to the rescue every single time! Able to shoot fabric softener sheets from her wrists, she can conquer Captain Static and put him back where he belongs, in your son's science experiment! She can sort and fold laundry with one hand, bake two dozen cupcakes for the school bake fair from scratch, and look cute the whole time!
The next time you find yourself doubting whether there is any good left in the world, when despair threatens to blot out all hope, turn to Super Softener, she will brighten your whites, freshen your colors, and always, always keep Captain Static at bay!
