One of our carers has started an ironing service. Where Fred uses the tumble drier every day we have a copious supply of soft water from the reservoir.I suggested we should save it for her steam iron.

Of course she had to ask Fred to save it for her so now he has another resposibility in his busy life. I have been asked to save bottles for him.(Don't know where I am supposed to get them but I suppose milk bottles will do.

It won't be long before he is negotiating for a pay rise now. He can try!!!

He's going to become quite the entrepreneur at this rate :-)

Half a gallon today and he is beginning to show signs of executive stress.

Don't know what he is going to do when we go global!

I used to collect the water from a shop airconditioner unit for my aquarium......trouble was it made the tank water TOO soft, so had to buy minerals to replace those that were not in it!!

I suppose he will be establishing markets with aquarium owners next then.

Even the most high powered executive needs a break. He's off out for his sausage sandwich today.

Be having to get him an i-phone (whatever that is) next.

I personally wouldnt use water that comes via a washing machine though,

for a fish tank......

I would imagine it would be pretty pure,I am not part of Fred's marketing department,because it is condensed water vapour by the time it has been through the condensing tumble drier.

It would be a bit dead wouldn't it?
