I have weeded, and put out landscape fabric, and 35 huge bags of mulch. You don't need to go to the gym on days when you work like that in the garden!
Charlie was working on the vast space under the house where we store things like extra folding tables and Christmas yard decorations. I was horrified when he came up with a box containing his grandparents' linen and lace tablecloth. It must have gotten stashed when the tables were put back after our last Christmas party.
It was really dirty, so first I soaked it and washed it in fine detergent. It still had lots of brown water spots on it, which actually could have been there for sixty years or more, I guess.
I remembered a tip I had used to get brown spots out of some antique quilts.
In the US, there is a product called Efferdent for soaking dentures overnight.
Add four or five of the Efferdent tablets to a jar with about a pint of water. Work the mixture into the brown spots with a washcloth and let soak. Rub the spots and continue to work in more Efferdent. I eventually made a less concentrated mixture and let the spots soak in the wet liquid. Voila, no spots! Soak and wash the tablecloth again to make sure the product is out of the fabric.
No pictures, so here is one of a young lady I spotted on the greenway this morning when I was walking the dog. Do you see her standing frozen in the meadow, watching me watching her?
Tomorrow we head to the mountains for a very long Memorial Day weekend. I am really looking forward to it!
