it's the motion of the washing machine that actually gets clothes clean. you don't really need soap or even hot water. i use a drop of soap for underwear, socks and work-out clothes and air-dry lots of stuff, but we don't have a yard so i can't use a clothes-line.
As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
