Doing Laundry - Old Style

We bought our daughter some summer dresses when we went to the store last weekend so when we came home she wants to try them on but I told her that we need to wash them first. She said "Okay, let's toss them in the washer" but I told her that we have to wash it by hand so I can teach her how to do it like the way we do it in the Philippines.
She had fun but she said at the end "It was a little hard" lol. Then we hanged it by their swing set outside. The combination of wind and sunshine dry the clothes fast.

Fun shadow shots for the day! Nothing like a little shopping trip! She's so lovely, Rose! Have a great weekend!

So many things need to be washed separately before wearing. To wash by hand is showing the care fore the beautiful fabric, so it may look nice for a long time. Your daughter is learning as you did, a generational activity that she will show her children someday...

Awww hard work, but the reward is the fresh clean smell of laundry off the clothes line...and of course a perfect shadow shot. ;)

Ahh a perfect sunny day for drying and shadows!

I hand wash my delicates rather than send them to the cleaners. I know it is hard, it gets piled up so easy.

Rylie is such a smart kid!

Rajesh said...

Great shots. She is enjoying the experience.

When we lived in Southern France. My mother used to do that. Even in Paris we never own a dryer.
Very nice and sweet post :)
Thank you for your visit.

My children also like doing or playing in the laundry. Though we use the washing machine, we soak the clothes first in the bath tub for a while, so I just let them help and have a little fun.

Hey Harriet said...

It's a nice idea to teach your little girl about the washing. That way kids can appreciate all that their parents do for them! A lovely set of photos!

That's the way we all have learned to wash our clothes?!
When I was a kid we washed all our clothes by hand in our summer house but it was fun and the laundry smelled so gooooood!

SSS greetings from Casa!

ang sipag naman ng little miss mo :D
kakatuwa sya tingnan sa photo habang nakusot ng damit.. ^^

Hahaha, natuto rin si Rylie na maglaba na hindi gamit ang washing machine. Palagay ko wala nang gumagawa nang ganyan sa States. Siyempre lahat nang bahay ay may washing machine na. Pero mabuti pa rin na matutunan ni Rylie na maglaba nang katulad nang paglalaba sa Pinas. Malay mo, magkaroon nang prolonged brownouts eh di malalabhan din ang mga damit ninyo maski walang kuryente. Sa probinsiya nga sa Pinas, sa ilog naglalaba ang mga babae sabay ligo na rin, lol. Thanks for the homey post. God bless you all always.
