This is my favorite time of the year for many reasons. But one big reason is I'm finally able to get my linens out on the grass. Sunning or crofting is by far the best way to get linens clean. It's safe, easy, and inexpensive.
Women have been crofting for centuries. And even with all the new laundry detergents and spot removers I have found it the best method in stain removal.
I just soak my linens, rinse well, and on a sunny day, just lay them flat on the grass (print side down). Keeping them wet helps the process. Usually only takes a day. If a stain or two persists, I'll croft for another day. Once they pass my inspection, a quick hand wash and out on the line it goes for a gentle drying.
And then comes ironing....OH I love that too!
