Share Your World for 3/20/23

Badge created by Paula

Let’s get right into Di’s questions…

Do you use an ‘air freshener’ in your home/car/office? (solid, gel, spray, pot pourri, etc) No, we don’t, and sometimes I think we should…

How often do you clean the oven or microwave? I’m not sure. I think whenever we think of it.

The instructions are in Greek…

Do you use a fabric conditioner in your laundry and/or fragranced tumble drier sheets? Mary uses fabric softener in the wash. Since we don’t get that dirty, a lot of times she just rinses out the clothes with the softener.

If you have the choice, do you prefer to get your laundry dry outside on a line or use a tumble drier? We’ve never hung clothes outside to dry. We always use the dryer.

Yes, we used to close the washer and dryer because, if we didn’t, one or more would get in there.

That’s all for this week!

  1. I love tgat kitty who needs a wheel for fun desperately. I love to hang my clothes out but my husband hated the look. I loved the smell of the outside mind you, we do use fabric softener and dryer sheets.
    We love smelly Xandros and incense and home sprays. Since Harley can make a grown man cry with his farts, the room sprays really help but so do lit matches.
    My hubby takes care of the oven as it’s to hard for me given my joints. We do clean the microwave pretty often. I like to take a lemon to it as well.


  2. When I lived out east many years ago, the house I lived in had a washer but no dryer, so everything had to hung outdoors. Unfortunately, the lines were strung up between several large trees, and by the time the clothes/sheets/towels/etc. were dry, they were usually full of wood ticks. I shook everything extra hard when I took it off the line in an effort to dislodge the ticks, but that wasn’t always effective. Another irritating thing was the way the sun fades colors. Yes, I know sunshine is the best disinfectant, but I like my colors to stay bright, and I hate shopping for clothes, so I try to make mine last as long as possible. Nowadays I hang things on an indoor drying rack if they can’t go in the dryer. No ticks, no fading. But most of our stuff goes in the dryer.


    1. Cleaning the oven is always nasty business. We have a self-cleaning one, and even then we don’t like to do it. We do most of our roasting and baking in our Breville oven. Mary likes it because she doesn’t have to bend over to get things in and out of it, and it’s much easier to clean…


  3. My mom used to hang clothes on a clothesline, even though we had a dryer. She liked the fresh smell of the outside. We live in an apartment and have a washer and dryer. Hanging clothes to dry out on the balconies is a no-no. We use air fresheners, the kind that automatically squirts. I wash clothes in white vinegar. It’s better for the clothes and the environment, and less expensive. I use dryer sheets every once in a while, especially with towels and sheets. Just my two cents…


  4. Hi John – hanging clothes outside is truly not what our culture does – it always amazes me to sometimes see laundry hanging when folks who travel share the photos – I do sometimes dry a heavy sweater outside or bath mats (on a lounger) if the weather is nice – it leaves such a fresh natural scent


  5. Thanks for joining in John. When we were on the boat we had no option but to use the washer and dryer in the laundry room, which would set us back £5 a week. I missed my washing line though, so it was the first thing Hubby put up in the garden. We haven’t room for a dryer here, so it’s washing at home and launderette to dry if necessary. Lately we’ve managed to get it dry outside, so that’s saved us a few bob!


    1. We’ve always had a washer and dryer. When we lived in Chicago, there was nowhere to put a clothesline, and when we got here Mary was happy to just use the dryer. We used to have a very heavy comforter that would stay soaking wet even after the spin cycle, so we bit the bullet and took it to a laundromat that had the really big washers and dryers and did it there. It got us out of the house, anyway…
