Our once foreboding, mounds of dirty laundry have suddenly become a pleasant summer chore!
Recipe for: Clean Clothes, Cooled Off (yet productive) Children and a Healthy Amount of Insanity:
- An outdoor tub (indoor works too, just not nearly as much fun!)
- 2 or 3 Loads of Dirty Laundry
- Several willing Children with clean feet!
Directions: Combine water, soap, and dirty laundry in tub. Have the cleaned feeted children stomp for 5 to 10 minuets. Drain dirty water. Rinse the clothes (hot water may be used for white loads, but not required). Wring the water out of the clothes (a small amount of muscle recommended for this step). Hang the laundry on the line. The process takes under 30 minutes of laughter per load.
Younger children make good laundry hangers if there is another load waiting to go in.
