We were lucky in that the previous home owners decided to leave us the washing machine in the kitchen. It saved us about two hundred pounds, which as things turned out, has been a bit of a life saver in the money stakes.
Hubby has been sanding down the dining table today.
It’s a bit marked and scratched, but that’s actually part of the attraction for something of this age and quality. It is SOLID and has come up a treat.
The idea was not to sand it down completely, just to take off the top layer of old varnish and redo it, thus keeping the character of the piece.
Hubby was grubby, dusty, and sweaty, so decided to strip and put everything he’d been wearing in the wash.
The machine has an economy setting which only takes 20 minutes and is perfect for lightly soiled clothes. We have also discovered a separate setting for an extra spin of 16 minutes, which means less time out on the line.
The beep informed me the load was done, so I got my new laundry basket and started to unload the machine.
I knew the spinner was good, but not THAT good, as everything was dry and Hubby’s joggers no cleaner than when he’d put them in.
Ah. I saw the problem.
The machine had still been set on spin, so we have just spent 16 minutes waiting for dry clothes to spin, unwashed.
