once again it's time to give you all what you want, to be sure. that is, look you see, on the basis of readership figures. i am unsure as to why this would be so, but let me roll with it. many of you seem to like it when the bubbles generated off of my washing machine feature here, so here they are once more.
this might be amiss of me to confess but i truly have no idea what the attraction is. yes, i do throw things up at this blog in the hope that they are read and entertain someone somewhere. i just have no idea what will and what will not find favour. with these posts about the bubbles that are made within my washing machine i do seem to have inadvertently struck SEO gold. perhaps i should clock how to distil it, so that i may bottle and sell it.
above then is a quite recent (July, i think) run at making bubbles with my washing machine. those of you who have avidly followed this interest of mine have no need for me to recap. for the sake of clarity, or for "newbies" to this passion, let me go on.
much of the modern technology embraced by present day washing machines and the detergents used ostensibly in them seems to seek a limitation on the lovely, foamy bubbles generated. this is probably quite good for the machines, the garments being washed and the environment, but i do so sorely miss them. driven by this missing, then, i seek ways in cheating the modern world so that i may see splendid bubbles produced.
that there is the vanish platinum, for that is how it is branded, from the last post. in the last post i detailed, somewhat, how disappointed i was in how this stuff does not create loads and loads of foamy bubbles in seeking to give "the ultimate clean" to clothing and other such items which one may reasonably place in a washing machine.
i remain unconvinced that vanish platinum does any better at stain removal than any of the other vanish branding products, be it regular, gold or any other such precious metal. the end product, or if you like result, is what i would call the personification of satisfactory. satisfactory and not really worth he high cost, in particular as it does not produce many bubbles.
although actually you can make vanish platinum make loads of bubbles. as shown in the pictures on this post, this time around i have got more bubbles on the go than ever before when using the stuff. observe below, if you will.
exactly how was i able to weave such magic? in precise details i simply disregarded all instructions and bunged what i considered to be a fair measure of stuff directly in the drum. to my thinking i had absolutely nothing to lose, and doing this may well enable me to extract some satisfaction from the fee paid. all win, then.
my (considerably) better half disagreed somewhat. whilst she was enthusiastic to see me outside of my usual melancholy self and dancing with joy for a rare change, she questioned the long term approach of what i had done. to her mind it was probably with good reason that you were not advised to just shove a good fistful of vanish platinum in the drum, for it might corrode it or block the pipes in the long run. so my joy faced some limitation, or end, since i have been informed that i am not to do it again.
some video footage of these brave new bubbles for those able to playback such here? sure.
where does my love of making bubbles within a washing machine come from? not sure, really. i suppose it's just one of those things one pays attention to when looking for a distraction from boredom.also, bubbles are cool.
how about we finish off with a look at the bubbles through the means of my other, other Commodore 64 camera mode. the one that seldom gets used, yet offers a quite exciting dithering effect.
and that would be that for this post, and perhaps for this month too. September is almost here, dear reader. no doubt further writings shall follow in or across that month.
thanks as ever for reading, and i trust the bubbles have brought you much satisfaction.
be excellent to each other!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
