Something my friends thought they'd NEVER see me do!
LOL! Yep, that's me, with a mouth full of clothespins, and with some pinned to the front of my shirt just like my mama and grandma taught me. I told you I have the longest clothesline in the State of Texas. I'll have to measure that sucker soon to prove it. Anyhow, those gorgeous barkcloth curtains I'm hanging on the line came from the living and dining rooms of the house. I washed them four times with my natural detergent, put them through the dryer three times, and still, they smelled of fake plug-in chemical fragrances. UGH.
I'm determined to use them in my new writer's nook, so I needed to destinkify them. (That's my new word, and I'll be using it often here.)
Four hours in the hot blazing sun did the trick! Nice, fresh smelling curtains made from vintage 1950's barkcloth. Score!
