Tupperware anyone?

I’ve been living in Germany for over 10 years now and have always felt inferior when it comes to my “hausfrau” qualities. Everything in a typical German household gets dusted weekly (ok maybe that’s just normal everywhere except in my house).

Ok let me start over. The Times they are a Changin’, Bob Dillan. I quit using all fabric softener for over a year now after reading about all the garbage we’re putting into the water to make our towels smell good. I honestly don’t notice much of a difference.

Bleach makes a huge difference and I confess I even like the “germ-free” smell of clothes washed with bleach. You can’t buy bleach in Germany. I could probably order it online but honestly, now that it’s slowly becoming apparent to even me, I understand why not to go that way. So we need to become conscious and make an effort. Sounds simple, doesn’t it? I welcome you to join in with comments!

I had an interesting afternoon with a solar expert. We cooked duck eggs on a parabolic cooker on which we also made coffee, boiling hot.
