'Extreme Cheapskate' Doesn't Do Laundry or Use Toilet Paper [VIDEO]
In Fact, Extreme Cheapskate Kay Says She Hasn't Done Laundry in Three Years
Well, color us extremely happy no one's invented smell-o-vision yet, because we're only guessing that New Yorker Kay, the star of an upcoming episode of TLC's reality show Extreme Cheapskates, wouldn't be mistaken for a bouquet of roses.
As Kay points out in a video preview of her Cheapskate installment, she doesn't like to spend money on frivolous things. Even though her "frivolous" list includes things the rest of us may count as "basic necessities of life," like doing our laundry and wiping our butts.
That's right … Kay doesn't believe in buying laundry detergent, spending quarters at the laundro-mat or buying paper products.
Including toilet paper.
"I don't believe in spending money on something you're just gonna throw away such as toilet paper and paper towels," she says.
Her alternative: she keeps a spray bottle near the toilet, and when she, um, goes number one, she just spritzes off her ladyparts.
And when she goes number two, it's basically the same process, though she adds a bit of soap to the water and washes herself down.
As for laundry, Kay did happen to have a free sample of detergent on hand as she showed the cameras how she goes about -- and we use this word loosely -- 'cleaning" her duds.
She puts them in the shower as she washes herself, letting the soapy water (soapy water which has run off the body she doesn't believe in wiping down with toilet paper) soak into the clothes, after which she rinses them and, eschewing the cost of a dryer, lets them drip dry in the shower.
