I don't always follow care labels – with different results of course. I hate dry-clean-only things. When I was a girl I played I owned a small laundry called "Turquesa" (turquoise). I hand washed only small items. Now my dad owns a laundry. No, he's not playing.

Hello, I recently discovered your blog through PRIMOEZA. Your work is so beautiful!

I don't always follow care labels either, especially when they say dry clean only.

Do you know the "soap of Marseille"? It's perfect for small parts of a "great" lady !

Kim – Hello and welcome!
C. – I've heard of Soap of Marseille, but have never tried it! Seems like the perfect soap ;)
Btw do you know the name of the soap of these images? Popeye!

hand washing is an art, i often dream of a laundry room with all the essential things to do proper handwashing, or even dream to hand wash in a river...i know, a bit weird these days!
