From the title of this blog, you didn’t actually think that we washed the truck, did you? Don’t be ridiculous. I’m just following up on a suggestion from a reader.
A couple of weeks ago, a woman named Babz contacted me about an old trick from Mother Earth News. She had been hand-washing laundry as well, and had used this technique for several years.
Anyway, I’ve been meaning to try this out ever since Babz recommended it, but never got around to it until yesterday. It’s very simple.
This was obviously very appealing to me, as our road is so bumpy that the clothes would be super agitated. I got to school, emptied out the soapy water and filled it up with clean. I then went home. After wringing out the clothes, I hung them on the line.
It worked great. Got everything clean, even the grubby little 2 year old’s stuff. The real test will be to try out some of Abe’s clothes after he’s been working with metal. May have to soak those overnight!
