Take it all in and ready to continue on…
Washing all done and packing all put away….
Isn’t that the best feeling after a weekend away.
We had to take linen and bedding, so took our trusty always pull out spare Doonas and not really matching sheets….pillow cases did sort of match though!
A good drive was had home from up the coast back to Sydney.
….It must be the rejuvenation of a refreshing break that gets one into into tidying up, and as seeing the temperature was really pleasant and it being not yet dark I piled sheets and quilt covers and towels etc in loads into that machine. All freshly laundered with a few drops of eucalyptus added to wash water the loads gradually filled the line as they got hung out in the fresh air…..hooray, now no washing to do in the morning…..isn’t that the best, especially for a Monday!
Such a simple thing to rejoice over.
My always on hand pre-wash that I use is as follows…
As you can see by the photo, I use my recycled and repurpose the Cloudy Ammonia bottles. I mark my empty bottle into thirds with permanent marker.
1/3 water…in first so you don’t get an overflow of bubbles …I’ve learnt the hard way and have found that if I don’t concentrate I tend to put liquids in the wrong order….ahhh
1/3 Cloudy Ammonia
1/3 Dish washing detergent…can be less…I’m going to try the Home Brand Laundry liquid for my next batch.
Sometimes if I have enough Eucalyptus I add about a small Half TEAspoon.
When I make a batch my measurements are not accurate. Also I make a few bottles at a time.
So here’s to clean washing and not having to buy preWash Spray.
A little thing you say….but it’s the little things that can add up.
Anyway, have a good day all even if you have to do a spot of washing.
Find the simple joy in -
…clean fresh smelling washing
…fresh water and ready access to abundant supply
…that you are able to hang it in the breeze here in Australia
…thereby you save on power and stressing about the bill
…clothes not wearing out through having to use the dryer constantly
…having a huge variety of clothing etc in the first place
…reducing your Carbon footprint
…by “being green”
…and what else- can YOU think of more
…being thankful that we have the climate so we CAN choose to not use the dryer. Many climates and parts of the world do not have this luxury especially at this moment in their winter.
Just think, an everyday chore we do without thinking and sometimes groan about yet all of the above!
