in minutiae

haha. I'm going to do my laundry three garments at a time and tell you all about it!

yeah ok so you'll take me off default view.

three pairs of socks and three silk tshirts are now cleaner than they were. washing clothes by hand sucks in the sense that it makes your back hurt and is really time-consuming but it is gratifying in the way the dirt comes right out with just your hands working through the cloth and detergent. the magic of the washing machine is not necessary, just convenient.

of course the other drawback is no automatic dryer so now we are in a race against time to see how quickly merino wool hiking socks will dry. they have approximately 14 hours. only one pair has to make it, though. I washed an extra thick pair that probably won't be dry until next week.

I guess today was a success, domestically speaking. I think I will read more about what I'd like to be doing with my website and then sit and then sleep and then get up and work. no more laundry till tuesday I guess. it wasn't that much fun.

silk t-shirts? wooo. what color? they're washable? i thought silk wasn't. (don't think i've ever owned anything silk, except maybe a scarf, and i don't wear scarves.)

i've done washings by hand, but my hands aren't strong enough to get things really clean.

yeah I know fancy huh. I buy them for the most bodily of pragmatic reasons: they wick moisture and they dry quickly AND they insulate when wet, all qualities needed by someone who sweats like horses or like me.

most of them are just white undershirts, but I also have a couple of blue ones, black ones, a brown one, and a yellow one.

I've been collecting them for awhile. I got almost all of them from wintersilks.com, which also sells special detergent for washing them. you can wash them in the washing machine but they have to hang dry.
