I've found this to be true in a lot of different situations and places. So don't be afraid of asking. I once got a 20lb chunk of chocolate because it didn't temper well, for free. I YEARS ago we'd go to a local organic juice factory and ask them if they had any rejects, misfills, or ones nearing the "use by date" and would drive away with 40 bottles of varying sizes for free.

I know stuff like the juice is not long term preps, but we used to mix them with other fruits and make it thicker and make fruit leather, which lasted a lot longer. So don't be afraid to ask for free stuff from places.

Juice can be canned to make it long term from what I understand. I don't personally can juice but might be worth the trouble to research it.

WonderWash has no tumbler thingy in the middle. It serves 2 purposes I'm guessing. To actually beat the clothing clean and to avoid any static cling. I know a lot of people use them (or wool dryer balls) in the dryer to beat back static cling.

LOL, yeah I took a couple bags home after talking to my sup that were so lightly damaged it was stupid. I now have a hard case top opening, with a slide out shelf in the middle bag for my 300bo, and mags in the slide out. What is "wrong" with the bag? the plastic door that folds down so the shelf can slid out was ever so slight bent so it sat up at about a 5 degrees. It doesn't affect anything about the bag.

True it can, however I dunno I don't want to can anything I didn't make myself, to many variables.

I saw someone mentioned buying Hydrogen Peroxide bottles which I do as well, but once opened it dissipates over time. Buy the smaller bottles not the jug.

Huh. Okay.

Looking for the golf ball thing I saw (and bookmarked) an article about using aluminum foil (heavy duty) balls in dryer for static cling.


And while I have you on the line (so to speak) let's talk a minute about washing bed sheets.

I can not get myself to think I could EVer get a bed sheet clean in a Wonder Wash. Any experience with this???

Fitting or physically clean? Both should be possible with little trouble.

I can only speak from my experience, but ALL shapes and sizes. From tiny carry on, to larger "are you checking a F*UCKING BODY?!?!?!" type bags..... However every city, every airline, and every person is different. So yeah. However like I said ask.....

Unfortunately no. I use the Wonder Wash for cloth diapers (great cheesecloth/flour sack towel substitute for much cheaper), cloth pads, and other delicate clothing. I can get quite a bit in the Wonder Wash though so I'm wondering if you did 1 at a time with a couple of golf of tennis balls to really agitate it (THAT Is what that tumbler thingy is called!) that it should get it clean. You may have to do 2 washes/rinses though to really get it, but I find I have to do that anyhow with any clothing that has ever been worn ever even if it was only for 1 second clothing gets really disgusting lol. (Yes, I meant for that rant to go on like that lol).

Otherwise, it may just be more worth the time/money to go to the laundry mat for bedding a couple of times a month.

Right. Okay. Do we have a thread for Wonder Washers and counter-top spin dryers??? (or any variation there-of?) I can't find one.

If we don't we need one (well, at least 'I' need one) and I'll set it up as long as I'm sure another one isn't already in existence.

In my own experience it does.

I don't remember that I have washed items with actual dirt. I remember I did purchase it while I was still hard at work on a permaculture garden. But I don't 'remember' how I was laundering my really get down mud and dirt gardening clothes. Come to think of it, I 'must' have been. No memory of the results though.

I have never laundered grass stained items, or for that matter any stained items.

But I can tell you I consider it easy to launder with it. I have been completely satisfied with the cleanliness of my laundry; jeans, and all other manner of clothing, bed sheets, towels, etc. (I also use multiple rinse washings until I get no soap bubbles at all. So I don't know how that plays into the cleanliness I experience)

I recommend it with enthusiasm. I'm pretty sure I paid $15 or so dollars for it years back when purchasing it. I consider it, in my own use of it I mean, worth at least three times the amount in its ease of use, results in cleaning, and break down for between laundering use storing.

Couldn't find a thread for WonderWash counter top washers after all.

So I started one:
Survival Discussions > Self Sufficient Living > WonderWash non-electric counter top washer (+ spin dryers)

Your Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe vetoed multiple self-defense bills; Senate Bill 1299, Senate Bill 1300, House Bill 1852, and House Bill 1853. Governor McAuliffe used an amendatory veto on Senate Bill 1023 to send the legislation back to the General Assembly in the form of a “one-handgun-a-month” bill.
