Bathtub Laundry - WIP Wednesday, May 11th, 2016

Creating is my passion, my sanity, my sense of being "up to something", my way of contributing a little bit. I always have a few projects going, many left to the side for months or even years before I pick up the best and carry on. Here's some of what I'm working on this week:

What do you do when your washer dies, you have two toddlers (one of whom is sick) and a mountain of dirty clothes? 

Bathtub Laundry. 

Here's how:

1.) Add clothes

2.) Add water, soap, and children.

I decided to use our eco dish soap instead of the laundry detergent as we would have some sensitive skin involved.

Look at the dirt! Must be getting cleaner!

4.) Drain tub, rinse, repeat.

Another helper. We rinsed twice before hand rinsing each item.

5.) Rinse, squeeze, hang.

After these drip dry for a couple hours we will (somehow) get the whole caboodle outside.

Perhaps we should do laundry instead of bathing the children from now on. I think the girls got cleaner.

What are you working on? What are you excited about attempting? What are you proud to be working on? Take a picture or two and share it with the rest of us by leaving your link in the comments.


  1. Rub-a-dub-dub,
    Two girls in the tub.
    And who do you think they were?
    A toddler, her sister —
    Agitator and twister.
    Soap bubbly then many a rinse
    They've not been so very clean since...

  2. A laundry room is inherently messy. In most homes, it can quickly become cluttered with dirty clothing, clothes hangers and all the supplies needed to do a family's laundry. In some homes, the laundry room is the main rear entrance to the house, so lots of miscellaneous items can end up there, too.
