I don’t know whether I should really admit to this but.....
rubbing washing up liquid all over a large bottle of water and rinsing it off is really rather nice!
Is there anything you find oddly appealing?

Bluebell that made me laugh ...

lemongrove Mon 13-Jul-20 17:29:28

Time to join a nice walking group I feel. It will get you out a bit. grin

lemongrove Mon 13-Jul-20 17:31:08

Well.......blush I quite enjoy folding clean towels.

Ooo me too lemongrove. Not sure why. I also quite enjoy doing simple washing up. Not saucepans or roasting tins. And certainly not drying up or putting away.

I like sweeping the floor I find it quite soothing

Pulling hair out of the bath plughole. What a confession. grin

Scraping burnt food from my glass Hob and making it look new again. I stand back with a smile of satisfaction. Very sad 😂

I like shining the chrome bathroom radiators and taps. Same with the brabantia breadbin and sink.

annep1 Mon 13-Jul-20 18:52:29

Can't think of anything sensuous.

DanniRae Mon 13-Jul-20 19:06:46

I too like removing hair from plug holes! The more that I can pull out the better.
(I know I should get out more...hmm)

I , as a wee girl, used to love squeezing freshly boiled beetroots out of their skins .

BlueBelle Mon 13-Jul-20 19:22:35

Blimey I might share a name but never thought of a washing up bottle as sensuous You’re on your own there bluebellewould

WOODMOUSE49 Mon 13-Jul-20 19:25:25

Me too but I'm not so wee !

I grow a lot of beetroot so really happy blush at the moment.

Do you like to iron them first?

ladymuck Mon 13-Jul-20 20:56:02

Using a cotton bud to pull up bits of black gunge from the wash basin!

Sussexborn Mon 13-Jul-20 20:56:14

I find unblocking the drain from the shower very satisfying. White vinegar and bicarbonate soda fizz up then glug and the water whirls away!

Sussexborn Mon 13-Jul-20 20:58:16

My sister in law irons towels and socks. She is incapable of sitting quietly with a good book or magazine.

Evie64 Mon 13-Jul-20 21:03:24

I find it sensual to get into a bed with clean sheets, mmmmm!

Callistemon Mon 13-Jul-20 21:09:35

I like using tablet soap rather than handwash.
Working up a lovely creamy lather and singing Happy Birthday twice!

Pantglas2 Mon 13-Jul-20 21:25:38

I’m with Evie - clean sheets....ooh!

AllotmentLil Mon 13-Jul-20 21:36:48

I’m with Callistemon - bought two lovely new posh bars today! Doesn’t have to be posh mind you!
