The thing is, the old-school home appliances we grew up with were first- or second-generation ones. They were inefficient, used a lot of water, and as a consequence of that, a lot of soap as well. Appliances have evolved so much since then, as any mechanics open on sunday at an appliance repair service shop will tell you. These machines today take in a lot less water (environmentally friiendly and all). But we still remember the amount of soap we are used to using – habits from before. And on top of that, soaps are ten times more powerful and concentrated too now – than the ones we used to know. When we use the same amount as we used to 20 years ago, we end up putting in maybe ten times as much as we need to. And we end up damaging our clothes, our dishes, and our appliances.

By the way, the head gaskets were blown and the heads cracked in my hunk of junk car. The positive side is that it does have LOTS of new parts and Brian is going to part it out piece by piece and I may actually make a little money back. He has also giving me a loaner car to drive while I look for a great car that will not only be a point A to point B automobile. This duo of brothers is the kindest, true Southern Gentlemen I have encountered since I left my small southern home town.
