Thanks for replies with helpful advice and suggestions. We don't have many shops here (small town) but I'll follow up the suggestions on line. Pet - like you I am not intending to take all of hubby's laundry home but will keep an eye open for anything that needs to be "smartened up" at home. Thanks ...

So many replies, so much useful information - I really appreciate your help.

However, after reading your post I feel positively liberated :lol:
Thank you Mrs Average

Hubby (advanced vascular dementia) is housebound due to a number of health issues so we cannot go out, otherwise I can identify with pretty much everything else, including what John's wife says at the end.

Yes, it truly is sad.
Hubby has advanced vascular dementia and he is almost blind. Specialist confirmed that the part of the brain which communicates with eyesight has almost completely died. His hearing has also been affected, but not so badly as eyesight.
