Life & Laundry Tips

Mt. Leahi / "Diamond Head"

" If you haven't got
 charity in your heart, 
you have the worst kind
 of heart trouble. "

Bob Hope

 “ The hardest job
 kids face today
 is learning good manners
 without seeing any. ”

 Fred Astaire

I like the tiny hole letting the green through

" You can find the
 entire cosmos
 in its least remarkable
 objects. "

Wislawa Szymborska 

" Is the Earth 
the property of 
all her passengers, 
or just those 
who manage to 
assert exclusivity 
over her richest resources? "



And now:
Laundry Tip
O' the Day !

" Here's an energy-saving laundry tip for you: Placing a dry towel in the clothes dryer with a load of wet laundry reduces drying time, cutting down on energy usage and utility bills. The idea is that by adding a dry and absorbent material, 
some of the moisture from the wet fabrics is wicked away by the dry towel. This reduces the moisture inside the dryer, allowing each item to dry out more quickly. Experiment at home "

Me thinks the ownership issue was settled long ago, the problem is the majority of tenants refuse to avail themselves of their rights of possession.

I like the tiny green hole also Cloudia.. I'm afraid I can't use your laundry tip, I don't own a dryer, but I do have more than enough sunshine and a big washing line!

I love the Hope quote

That's an interesting laundry tip!

I'm confused, if the dry towel gets wet, then energy must dry the newly-dampened towel, and it starts all over again. toss and turn and spin; best would be direct sunshine and time to use the sun....DrumMajor

Cloudia said...

Sunshine is the best

Thanks, jolly friends

Hilary said...

Lovely post, as always but I'm having trouble accepting the logistics of that dryer tip. ;)

Yes, the second quote so very true. Surely one of the greatest challenges.

Please have you all a good new week.

great tip. Would you believe that the California city where I live does not allow outdoor clothes lines?
It's true
