Thank you for your input on this subject.. I like how you related it
to the mundane... it makes a clear-er point.. to me at least.. And yes
hand washing your laundry is a pain... even with modern detergents.
Reminds me of when I had my two weeks of training for National Guard
last summer. I have found that trying to pack 2 weeks worth of clothes
is next to near impossible... I also was one of few women (the guys
probably didn't.. we could tell) who did launder at least our
undergarments and that was a daunting task... I did try to wash my
outer clothes, ACUs or previously were known BDUs, but it seemed
pointless as it was going to get dirty again and took a long time to
dry. Long hot shower and intensive scrubbing were in order when i got
home! So after that it is no wonder and I can completely understand
your argument.... and to think I was just doing mine.. imagine if you
were doing others as well which might have been the case in time
period! Cleanliness really is next to Godliness!!
