I hate doing laundry, I hated it in America and I hate it in Africa. Even though I am paying to have my shirts, pants and shorts cleaned, I still do my underwear and socks. It took forever and I hated every minute of it.

I did it by candlelight and head lamp, now they are all hanging inside my house drip drying (I have a concrete floor with no carpet, only a couple of mats) and I keep hearing the water drops and think it is the mouse.

Although if you are ever in Southern Africa washing your clothing I highly recommend the Green Bar Soap (it is actually called that and it looks just like the title) it is great at getting out the African red dirt.
