Sharing My World 20-03-2023

Here is my post for Share Your World, hosted by Di.

Do you use an ‘air freshener’ in your home/car/office? (solid, gel, spray, pot pourri, etc)
No, I’m not so keen on artificial scents constantly around the place. I sometimes use Glade (a powder you shake onto the carpet) when I do the vacuuming.

How often do you clean the oven or microwave?
Hoe often do I do what, now? I have cleaned the microwave a couple of times. My oven is “self-cleaning” so I didn’t clean it and now it’s fecked. Lying bastards.

Do you use a fabric conditioner in your laundry and/or fragranced tumble drier sheets?
I use a standard liquid fabric softener which I put into “drawer 2” in the washing machine.

If you have the choice, do you prefer to get your laundry dry outside on a line or use a tumble drier?
I haven’t had an outside drying facility for decades. The garden isn’t really big enough. So I get to sit here and watch the pennies click away on the smart meter remote display while the tumble dryer does its job.

It’s in the “amber” at the moment as the water heater is on for my shower later. Obviously the heating’s not on as you can see by the blistering 13 degrees C… (which for the benefit of Americans and really old British people is 55F)

    My range oven is supposed to be self cleaning but I have never figured out how to use it. If you open it you will see it has never been cleaned.

    My oven has the self clean option but I have never used it lol. I do clean it myself occasionally.

    55 inside!?!? It didn’t get that cold in here when my furnace quit working for a day and a half last month. Out of curiosity because of the way you said it, does Glade only make carpet powder in the UK? In North America, their brand’s on a whole line of different kinds of air fresheners from sprays to cones to candles to things to hang off the mirror in your car…

      Actually they’re the same here, thinking about it. In fact “Glade” is pretty much synonymous with “air freshener”.

    I’m really happy to hear I’m not the only one who rarely cleans the oven. 😀 (Don’t worry, the top of the stove is spotless.) I don’t like artificial fragrances either.
