Have you ever wondered who designs the soap dispensers in washing machines? I do every time I have to clean mine. There are so many hard to reach spots. I’m guessing that whoever designs them never cleans them. Anyway, I did a bunch of minor chores like this today and also put a new post on my Random Thoughts blog–I’m going to try to write a post a week on it. We’ll see how that goes. I did some weeding and also removed a dead tree. Thankfully I got all that done before we had a very heavy rain shower. And there was even a tornado watch for the county next to mine, the first since the late 90’s. The weather was weird for sure. After a orange sunset, we now have very loud thunder with lightning (and Oliver is unhappy about that). Then I sewed the first square on my next quilt which has a total of twenty squares. I’m hoping to do a lot more on the quilt tomorrow when I won’t be cleaning soap dispensers. I started my next puzzle, a 1000 piece puzzle with a dragon and a fairy. After my last puzzle which had 2000 pieces, this one seems quite small. The nice thing is that Calliope’s cat bed fits on the table without covering up any of the puzzle.

  1. I think I’ve stuck mine in the dishwasher…but if you are your own dishwasher you might have to let it soak a bit in warm water and get out the toothpicks.

    I think the designers are the same folks who thought split level homes were brilliant. Yeah let’s put a door in and you have to go up or down without any place to hang your hat. Twits. If half even less than half of the architects had to live in the homes they designed I am sure they would design them differently. Like all those fancy moldings and grove detailed furnishings. Guess if you can afford to buy them or have them you get someone else to clean them. When we got our new cabinet pulls for our kitchen (semi) redo I made sure to get handles that were smooth and easy to clean. The refaced cabinet doors only have a sort of one tray depression – Refrigerators are another design nightmare!

  2. Thanks, Jules, and great idea about the dishwasher, but that doesn’t solve cleaning the space behind the dispenser in the washer itself and that is the hardest as I can’t really see into it or reach all the tiny spots. But I did my best once again. I agree about the other things you mention and I’ve deliberately remodeled my home for simplicity of line and care! πŸ™‚

  3. Not a whole lot one can do for a split level half under the ground. But we are used to it by now.
    We did finally update the kitchen and have a real house size stove and oven. The bathroom…. well they might be another few years down the road πŸ™‚

    We have an out door covered enclosed porch we want to redo. And some inside flooring to change. Always something.
