Line drying

We received our James Hand Washer with Wringer today! Even though we have a low water and Energy Saving washing machine, collect the wash water to water certain plants and have no dryer, we feel less wasteful with this non electric appliance. One thing less to plug into the little sockets in the wall!  

We already have a Hand Cranked Blender from Lehman’s which we use that really gives one a great workout — giving the term “will work for food” a whole new meaning.   It will be quite nice to hand wash, wring and line dry the clothes, especially during the warm spring and summer months.

    what type of detergent do you use? do you make your own? i have been making my own for about 2 years now and i’m fairly happy with the results…it doesn’t clean as good as the commercial crap but i’m willing to work a little harder to have safer water to use for greywater!

    We use concentrated bio-degradable detergent that we can purchase fairly cheap at Trader Joes.

    Thanks for being willing to post berry bar recipe! And yours is the soap I usually use too but was puzzling over whether I should consider it safe enough to water with… All ok so far? Seems so.
