Laundry washing has taken a new twist with the predicted demise of my washing machine!
I say “predicted” because, quite frankly, these machines are not built to last and form an integral part of the “throw-away” society that is ruining the Earth upon which we live!
So…I have reverted to hand-washing…
I have rinsed the washed clothes in this rainwater barrel…and there’s no need to empty this as the over-flow runs away into the ditch, so there’s always fresh water…well, this is the west of Ireland!
This is, by the way, the very best way to soften clothes and dismisses the need for softening chemicals!
