I'm told that those big 18kg machines are big enough to take 3 horse rugs and are brilliant at removing poo stains - think yourself lucky that my daughter wasn't the one to use it before you. :shock:
Please tell your daughter that these machines are not for pooing in.
I have experienced a mid winter whiteout on the high tundra between Alta and Skaidi, I tell you, it's no big deal there is nothing to see, anyway, I must go back there as I think I left the northern lights on.

Here is another tip of the day although no one can top Crystal's :lol:

I managed to squeeze our winter quilt into the smallest machine, there was just enough room for the pod.
The machine still worked but the pod just melted onto the quilt. It came out with a melted blue mark.
Another cost saving tip gone wrong.

I don’t like the ones which provide washing powder. I like to overdose the machine with my own lessive for the winter quilts annual wash plus fabric conditioner...

We have a washing machine somewhere. I can remember buying it some time ago. It must still be working because our bedding and clothes smell fresh and clean. :lol:

Our local launderette has a couple of rows of seats outside-nice to sit in sun and smoke a couple of cigars-a few seats inside for the winter tho'.

I'd be irritated too motm2, whenever I've used those machines I've done a quick shop and the sat in the car with a book until it was ready. I'd have been unsure what the etiquette about removing someone else's laundry was.

Those machines are very good for big dog beds as well as horse rugs😉

Fairly common practice to unload someone else’s machine. Normally you stuff it in another machine, or look for their bags and put it in them. Very rude people just dump it on the floor....

Use them all the time for the gîte, but I don’t like other people handling my washing so I take a timer with me.

Very rude to ignore when the washing is done. Doesn't everyone have a timer on their phone these days?

I felt like dumping it on the floor! That's why I went inside to get someone. Next time I will take a spare black bag to put any wet washing in.
