6 random plastic toys/parts of toys - bin/recycling
2 piles of paper - recycling
1 pile of old pens/markers - bin
1 working breadmaker - given to a friend
2 items repaired from my "to-be-fixed" box - no...
1 very old lab coat from my university days (complete with mysterious chemical discolourings ) - straight into the bin!!
1 bunch of unwanted personalised supermarket vouchers - shredded & recycled
8 random plastic...
A few more bits and pieces...
2 purses - charity
3 brochures - recycling
7 pairs children's socks - charity
1 pile random papers - recycling
1 old bath pillow - bin
1 old bag - bin
1 old belt - bin
1 unworn hairband -...
1 unused seesaw for swingset - off to a new home
and I have forgotten the others, but there were only 4 other things
So 1587+5=1592/2010 (I'm on a slowdown here, need to build up the decluttering steam again )
It's all front-loaders here in Ireland, so I have very little experience with top loaders, but the first thing that springs to mind is what temperature are you washing at?
If you are regularly doing low temp (40degC or 30degC) as is...
A quick update before bed...
19 things to a combo of bin/recycling/charity
and a big box of books for the 2nd hand book shop but I'll count them once they've actually left the house
So 1568+19=1587/2010, nighty night
