Alzheimer's and Nice Clean, Fresh Towels


“After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded.....”
Like everyone, my mother uses towels to dry herself off after a shower. Or, to dry her hands.



When a towel gets dirty, I throw it in the hamper.

I wash all the towels at the same time. My dirty towels, my mother's dirty towels.

When I wash the towels -- I use Tide and OxyClean. I also have this little plastic ball that I put Downey fabric softener in -- makes the towels come out nice, fresh, and soft. The ball goes right in with the wash -- in the washer.

When the towels are dry I fold them. Often, I stick my nose on the towel and smell them. They smell very nice, and are nice to the touch.

My mother's towels smell just like my towels. No difference.

What does this have to do with Alzheimer's disease, and Alzheimer's patients?

You tell me.
