WW: Laundry

In my country this is how it's done with pails and the children bring water or we use a hose to wash and rinse by hand. Or sometimes the concrete sink will have a pipe attached so one does not have to carry water.

However we have a wired line to hang clothes with clothes pins.

We found the same thing in Nicaragua on our mission trip there.

There's nothing like seeing lines of laundry blowing in the wind and hot sun and as a child running through it and smelling the fresh scents.

  7. Beautiful! I remember my gramma's in the mountains of Tennessee washing clothes outside and hanging them out to dry. The sheets always smelled so clean and made a neat noice when we moved around. Thanks for the memories.

  14. Thoughts of hanging clothes outside I remember my mama. Sheets blowing in the wind I remember the smell of climbing into a fresh bed my mama made. Scrubbing the clothes? MaMa had this bar of soap that for the life of me I cannot remember the name, but she would scrub the stains with it and they always came clean.

  16. It's funny how mundane tasks such as laundry evoke all sorts of wonderful memories. That's one of the fondest memories I have of my aunt's house up in MA. The clothes line and the pulley system they had from an upstairs window.

  26. I love it! The fresh smell of lined dried laundry is so great of course I don't like the stiff feeling they have but it is a great smell. My mom always hung row after row of clothes in the summer and I just loved running and playing between the laundry, especially the sheets.

  27. I remember running through my grandmother's sheets when she hung them on the line. That was so much fun.
