    Good luck. You could have grated it yourself lazy woman. Make sure you rub it well into the towels.

    rub? you be kidding me. i'm already pi**ed a simple job that takes one minute in europe (load machine, set for 90 degrees, add powder and softener) takes overnight soaking and the use of products i never knew existed. there is no need to make it last all day with rubbing, scrubbing, boiling and washing.
    no wonder dominicanas take all day to do the laundry. they don't even know that in civilized country it's 5 minutes...

    yeah but in a "civilized{ country, they could earn enough to pay for the electric bills and a good machine..

    I am always really touched to see them washing the laundry down at the Massacre River.. all the women together on the rocks there..

I have asked La Cadena to stock it -- my little corner store. But if you can find the Vanish with OXY I would do that over cloro... which really Shreds the fabric....
    I realise this is an old thread... But, I saw Oxiclean at both Carrefour and La Sirena these last few weeks.
    Just thought I'd point that out.

    So have your cleaning ladydo it! No work required by you. I know a haitian lady in Muņoz who would be anxious to do it for you
