I wanna be a Mennonite??
Done before peak Hydro rates with a front loading He Washer, with Eco Nuts detergent, and hung on the line to dry.
Who said being cheap and environmental don't go together? Yes it takes a little time to hang the clothes, but I've learned to only do one load a day in the summer and that sun dried smell is AMAZING. ( I've also learned not to hang laundry on poop spreading days).
This way I can have the entire load washed,folded and put away at the end of the day.
Easy peasy and sooo worth the effort and extra money in our pockets.
Most of you know how much I LOVE the 'Anne of Green Gables' lifestyle and it is similar to the Amish/Mennonite ways. In fact, I watched an Amish documentary the other day and it reconfirmed some of the reasons we hold our children a little closer to us than others. I'm pretty sure I could become a Mennonite if I could dress is slightly prettier dresses and pluck the hair off my face. However, there is one thing I could not live without. OK maybe several, but I do love my High efficiency washing machine.
Maybe I could start my own 'Anne of Green Gables' colony with my own set of standards and rules?? Anyone wanna join me?
