When I was a child,  monday was washing-day. I remember my grandmother laying the blankets in the grass. It was called 'de bleek'.
On the picture you see me with her on this 'bleek'.

 I also have a large grass- field but I prefer to hang it out. Otherwise the chickens, the cat, the dog and the moles should make it dirty. (I don't remember moles when I was young???)
Monday iI washed the new fabric . I always wash it by hand, in the last water with a bit of vinegar, to stop bleeding the fabric.
Here you can see it drying.....
