Today I have learned the hard way the drawbacks of washing clothes in the sink with laundry soap in POWDER FORM. After many minutes of scrubbing, soaking, swooshing and swirling, I rinsed the clothes off and neatly laid them atop the heat radiators to give them that ribbed look for style points.
Once the clothes were dry, I noticed they were all covered with white dots. I guess soap spots aren't that bad. Heck, it almost blends right in with my team kit - the multitude of black prunes are now cow-patterned! I suppose this is OK with my plant-based ideals, but I guess it could be compared to faux fur or mock meat. Some say these are almost as bad as the real thing because it perpetuates actions that are deemed morally amiss.
Lessons learned when washing clothes in a sink:
Always use liquid detergent.
If only powder detergent is available, be sure to wash clothes inside out; try to dissolve soap in water basin before adding clothes.
