- Empty my bladder
- Strip down to my unders
- Dust off the scale
These are all ways, that I feel, make that scale number a bit lower. I am sure a full bladder, clothing, and those dust particles and loose hairs lying on the scale will add at least 10 pounds.
So why do I torture myself with this device called the scale? The scale is my appliance tester. If my weight stays the same or is lower, then I know that my dryer is working properly and not shrinking my clothes. If my weight goes up, then I know that perhaps the dryer may need to be serviced or that the scale is broken.
