Step 1: Why and How
Our laundry room is next to the baby's room and you have to turn off the washer and dryer when he takes a nap. So my wife asked me to think of a way to remind her that she had clothes in the washer.
Make a little device that can be turned on when the washer gets paused and will flash until turned back off reminding her to finish the laundry.
