Yeah well we traveled on a wing and a prayer so saving money was important so the kids had to help out. Only if we had really big items like blankets or we felt rich that week and we happened to be near a laundry mat.



Think under those circumstances AS I would have been aiming at a whole lot more prayers....

It is amazing the things we have done in the past in order to achieve the dream and sometimes it was just to get one from week to the next.

I trust life is a little more comfortable for you now...

I feel so old somedays, to think that it wasn't that many years ago when my mum had three babies, no washing machine and she would wring the clothes out on a mangle on the backyard. We really ought not complain with the all singing and dancing appliances we have today, but why, oh why do they all have to bleep so much? :roll:

I have to agree on that one. I know if it(PC) beeps at me then i have hours ahead of me trying to figure out what made it beep. As for all the other musical, beeps and dings, well i can live with them. It is funny how machines tell us what to do now though :***

kels washing machine sings when its done and the microwave - dont get me started on that one!
it continues to bee at you every few seconds after its finished to "remind" you that you have something in there - no kidding!

Other than that we just have a fridge that sounds more like a microwave than a fridge thanks to a buggered fan unit in the freezer

It would be ok I guess at $30-40ish. But to pay what they are asking now seems over the top.

hmm.


EDITED by ozzy: Please keep prices out of it. Had a complaint from handiwash themselves, they have never been available, anywhere, for $39.95 ;) Must have been a different product, or Derek forgot the actual price.

Thanks. Ozzycamperboy

Any 20 lt plastic bucket will do the same and if you want it to agitate then just use a stick. Same thing really without the fancy price. If you go out at all just stick it in the car and while your driving it agitates itself.
I did see a thing made in germany that these people had in Seaforth years ago. It was on a broom stick and was metal and looked like a holey bell shaped thing. Meant to put air through the water and thus agitate the clothes. Could get away with a large plunger and drill some holes in it i suppose. Same thing really.
Still have to wring it all out by hand though no matter what. :lol:
