old (really old) schoo laundry day !!

Today i ran out of clean clothes ! i HAD to do laundry ,this new place where i live doesn't have those washers and driers with the coins n all ,and there isn't a laundry mat nearby ,but i decided i'm taking this bike of mine n not coming back till i find one ! after cruising little miserable allies with all the dogs and locals watching the "Falang = foreigner" wandering around i found this small shop , the lady didn't speak ANY English ,and my little Thai didn't help either, after long miming session i came to understand i have two options , either pay 15 Baht per piece ,or 50 Baht per full basket ! of course it didn't make sense !so i knew we didn't exactly "understand" each other .and was left with one option ,old school laundry session ! I bought the soap, and fabric softener(and this will prove to be the smartest thing I've done).

I sat down on this little bench in the yard ,brought this big plastic bucket !! filled it with water ,n started rubbing n scrubbing piece by piece .it wasn't 10 minutes before i got really frustrated with the process ,my arms are stone stiff and my forehead is sweating! and i haven't even started with the bed sheet and pillow cases !! so i thought to myself : how does the washer work ? easy,it spins ,there is no rubbing or scrubbing ,its just spinning . i poured all the soap i have in the bucket ,with the big sheet and pillow cases ,and started just playing with the water spinning clock wise,stop .."teshhhhh" anti clockwise ...stop ..teshhh... but i wasn't happy with the process either ! there is no foaming ,there is no nice smell ! so i figured lets pour some softener ! JACK POTTTTTT ... foam everywhere ,smell is heavenly ,and you know if its foamy then its clean,and if it smells nice then its clean ! and so my laundry is now clean and clean and smells nice . and don't you dare judge me .
I wonder how our moms did it back in the days !(yea I remember that,long long ago)

Be careful though, after a wash like this, your hands might feel dry and wrinkly so don't forget to use moisturizer ..ya3teek alf 3afieh ya shattoor :)

After all, if they smell nice, they're clean indeed! If that's your criteria, invest in a bottle of Febreeze ;). Sounds like you managed to the get them cleanER anyway;. Good luck in your next laundry adventures. As for my mom, she has a washing machine. That washing board is much better as a musical instrument than a laundry implement...

NasEr said...

lol MommaBean :D that washing board as featured in Tom&Jerry :p ? we don't have that heheh..we have big طشط ..go figure :D
u gave the best diagnoses of my clothes indeed,they're cleaner :D
