Mister Rogers arrives with a basket of laundry to be washed and ironed. In the kitchen, he prepares by setting up an ironing board, hanging a clothes line, and running a sink full of water. As he washes his laundry in the sink and hangs it on the line to dry, Mister Rogers talks about learning to do things for yourself. As he begins his ironing, he sings Parents Were Little Once Too.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Major Smith recognizes King Friday with a citation from the Committee for World Clean-Up for his clean-up efforts.

In the castle's D Room, Vija Vetra performs a dance representing various household chores. Miss Vetra is presented with an appreciative citation from King Friday for her marvelous performance.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers is finishing his laundry when Mr. McFeely stops by with an orange to share. Together they sit in the kitchen and enjoy a snack before Mr. McFeely hurries off to help his wife clean their house.
