    There's cheap...and then there's this....


    New Yorker Saves By Skipping Laundry for 3 Years

    The latest season of TLC's 'Extreme Cheapskates' premieres this month, and from the looks of the teasers they've posted online, the recession has born an entirely new breed of outrageous savers.

    In the first clip, we meet New York resident Kay. Not only does she freely admit to never using toilet paper, she reveals she hasn't done laundry the traditional way –– using a washer and dryer –– in years.

    "Whenever I have dirty clothes, I try to wash them while I'm showering," she says. "I think the last time I did laundry was maybe three years ago."

    Here's her alternative method: Lathering up her duds with detergent (a free sample, naturally) and soaking them while she washes herself. Afterward, they hang to dry in the shower.

    Kay sees no need in indulging in paper products either. She replaced toilet paper with a squirt bottle filled with water.

    It's not the soap that gets clothes clean, it's the agitation. Anyway...

    Apparently she doesn't dine at Taco Bell.
    Be Not Afraid.

    Not doing laundry and not using toilet paper is a really bad combination. I'll bet she gets some nasty infections in her female parts.


    We used to have state hospitals for people like her.

    Oh my!

    We all seem to be missing the *real* point of the story ...

    And that is the need for free detergent and bar-soap
    for the "unwashed masses."

    Yet more handouts needed. ...

    The administration needs to get on this right away!
