Share Your World – Week of March 20, 2023

Do you use an ‘air freshener’ in your home/car/office? (solid, gel, spray, pot pourri, etc)

I have what’s called a “vent clip” in my car – a thing that clips to the vent that when I run the fan or A/C, it releases a fragrance. I was actually able to keep the new car smell in my car for almost 3 years until mom bought fried chicken and made my car smell like fried chicken, which was what caused me to have to put a vent clip in my car to get rid of that fried chicken smell. Beside my car, I rarely use air freshener elsewhere.

How often do you clean the oven or microwave?

Almost never unless I made a mess in it.

Do you use a fabric conditioner in your laundry and/or fragranced tumble drier sheets?

Just the drier sheets. I didn’t know why at first but I found out it was the only way I could get my clothes to smell good and clean since mom decided to go scent-free on the laundry detergent.

If you have the choice, do you prefer to get your laundry dry outside on a line or use a tumble drier?

When I lived in China, hanging laundry to dry was the tradition despite it took just about forever for anything to dry as it was so humid. Dryers were tiny and for emergency use only. When I came to the U.S., the first thing mom told me was people dry their clothes in industrial-sized dryers. “Nobody hangs their clothes out to dry,” she told me, “If they do, it’ll likely to provoke a neighbor to call the police.”

At first, I believed it but as I got older, I learned it’s not true. There are places in the U.S., where people like hanging their clothes on a line to dry, given they have the space. Still, I don’t prefer it as I live in a windy area and dust can be blown around and I prefer my clothes to be dust-less. So if I need to hang my clothes to dry, I’d rather hang them on the drying rack in my laundry room than outside.

With that said, I don’t prefer one over the other, I typically have clothes that need to be hung dry and clothes that should be in a dryer for convenience.
