In my home, Laundry is not at all a woman’s job, rather I will say that a lot of washing is done by my kind husband who shows his extreme kindness to me by sharing the load of laundry, cleaning and cooking. The pace at which he does, sometimes, I am confused who is the home minister of the house, Me or Him and I feel envious about it….The word “J’ synonymous with Woman…hope most will agree.
I think we both are compatible to a great extent in household work because maximum load of household work is shared. Yeah, there was a time when he was not so well-versed in domestic works at the time of our marriage but still he was well-conversant with laundry techniques (it wasn’t a regime of washing machines, it was a regime of hand wash) and kept his clothes well- maintained. He can iron out clothes better than the washer man and knows the technique of folding them. The reason behind was the irony of fate, he had lost his mother when he was a student so he learnt to maintain his things, though he was a big zero in kitchen work.
When I took the charge of the house, I solely managed all out of choice and rather you can say out of my Man’s love but it was short-lived. Once I was blessed with motherhood, I was too much pre-occupied with chores and so my husband had to take the reins in his hand too, to run the home smoothly giving me time for my Me-time and even breathing…hahahaha…Women complain that they don’t get time to breathe.
We purchased the machine way back in 1991 and both of us learnt to operate and the marathon of washing clothes began…my both kids were 3 and 1 years of age…so well you can understand the load of clothes to spin in semi-automatic machines.
I made him understand the rules of washing, to separate the coloured clothes from whites and to be conscious about the clothes which gave out colours.
My Better Half
At present, I am using third fully automatic top loading machine of Whirlpool in a row of 24 years and it is an indispensable part of household now.
Normally, we load the machines in week day’s evenings, keeping ourselves free on weekends for relishing good food and rest.
I am blessed with two sons, so my house is a house with majority of males but they are so desperate in doing household work that sometime, I have to yell at them that this is my house and I am the queen and not you all…well you can watch their faces after my comment…and they say in unison, “Is it so…then we are dropping our hats…manage all by yourself.”…huh.
I wish that other families should too adopt the habit of sharing the load, it is not the woman’s world anymore where both are working and even if one is not working, she needs someone to help and rescue her from the load and the free moments can be spent to pursue one’s hobby or enjoy each other’s company.
The Ariel matic detergent is wonderful and is doing the job of washing in perfection. The clothes come out immaculate clean from the washing machines and it can be a neighbor's envy till we don’t spill out the reason of our clothes been spotless, clean and with shine.
I don’t think that for long, I will be able to hold the secret, rather I will disclose it so that maximum people use it and enjoy the Ariel matic washing for both top load and front- load machines.
I thank Blogadda profusely for choosing me and giving me a chance to use the Ariel matic detergent and I am contended with the results.
In my household, the domestic chores are shared among husband and my sons and I get enough support in handling rather sometime they overdo and I feel left out….and with The Ariel matic, they will find more easy in laundry work and they will love to indulge…I too loved to indulge and soak in happiness.
My world is far off from gender inequality and I dream the same for others. May all come together and share the workload and giving each one some free time to pursue their passion.
One secret: I had transferred the detergent in our regular detergent box, but when my husband used it for washing. He enquired me about the detergent, finding difference in clothes, then I spilled the beans and told him about this new product of Ariel and he was flabbergasted.
That's Me with Ariel
Thank you Ariel for coming out with such a nice product. Wish you all the best for future endeavours and even its price is easy on pocket of all.
