Used to hand wash, my dad was used to doing that in Jamaica, but the washing machine was much better.

I know how to use and have a wash board, the clothes plunger thing, the tin pail, the stove iron etc how to hang a clothes line etc and i think that it is great to have the items and the skill in case the electrical grid goes down or in case or catastrophe like hurricane/tornado etc where power couldbe out for weeks, but with Gwds will, i will never have to live like i am in the early 1900s and will never have to bathe in a tin pail and wash clothes in it. yes i can till/mulch/fertilize/plant& harvest a garden, compost, can/bottle fruit & vegetable, make moonshine brandy & wine and also know how to make candles from castor seeds and how to make lye soap from ash & lard. i thank my ancestors for giving me my mom & my grannies.

I started making soap as a hobby.
I'm getting good.

It takes so long for the soaps to set but I love it.
I found I hate glycerin based soaps.

I cant hand wash clothesEmbarrassed except an undershirt or so but I hand wash undies and bras those never go in the machine. My helper hand washes certain clothes but towels, bed clothes go in the washing machine. I can bathe with a gallon or less of water though. I don't use the washing board or the plunger (doubt the plunger is sold here) just me and my hands going scips scrips scrips. lately Ive been wearing but esp. when I have my mani, I told the girls at the nail place and they looked at me like I wash a freakCryCry
 
I have too many fruit trees to go hungry including breadfruit which is a starch. There may be a compost somewhere out back I dunno. We have candles, kerosene lamps but no kerosene. We have a coal stove but no coal. We have a drum to catch rainwater but its never been opened

As I've gotten older, I've become more cognizant of my carbon footprint and living a simpler lifestyle.

I do hand wash some (not all of my clothing).  I'm working towards growing my own food (would love to have my own garden one day) and sewing majority of my clothing. 

I'm a HUGE advocate of people knowing what they are putting in their bodies. 
Whenever my family comes over, they jokingly tell me that I "eat like a white person" but whateverrrrrr. lol.

It's always a good idea to know where your food comes from, whether that means growing your own food or buying food that is growing right/naturally (minimal to no GMOs, chemicals, hormone fed animals, etc). I think one of the main reasons that our generation is seeing so many new diseases/sickness is because of all of the chemicals we are pumping into our body via the food we eat. But that's another topic all together.

I used to say the same thing until I discovered that gloves are your best friend.
