Not clean, not yet dirty

I don't normally wash my clothes after each wearing. I'm lazy/cheap and I hate wastefulness. But I also don't like to fold them up and put them back in the drawer, because even a little smell or dust will negatively effect the surrounding clean clothes. Both my boyfriend and I do this, and we do not have a good place to put these limbo clothes in our apartment. Where/how do we store our not clean, not dirty clothes?

You thought "Official Use Only" included porn? For real?

You thought "Official Use Only" included porn? For real? I was entrusted with a laptop owned by the public sector (recent employer). I let a friend use the laptop to do writing work while his computer was broken. I deemed this acceptable because at no time did he have access to employer's VPN-protected data. However, it would appear that he downloaded pornography. [more inside]

Hardwood steam cleaner

Steam cleaner for sealed hardwood floors? The inflight Skymall catalog had a Eureka Enviro steam cleaner for $99. I did a little online searching and it seems to be discontinued (not listed on Eureka's site). Is there a comparable product that anyone has had good luck with? I have lots of hardwood and am too lazy to get on my hands and knees. I also don't want to hire a cleaning person.
