I keep coming back to this thread to see if anyone has offered a suggestion.

It looks like Guava to me.  I keep looking at images of fruit, leaves, stems, etc.

Wikipedia says there are several varieties.

I have read several threads about folks using coconut oil or olive oil.  Here are some threads with recommendations:

Oh, and vinegar? What's with that?



Rufus, as for the vinegar ...  I read on the internet that one way to solve the lint problem was to wash the washer with 1 or 2 cups vinegar and very hot water using the wash cycle.

I also use the vinegar to wash my clothes because I only put them in the wash cycle and take them out before the rinse or spin cycle.  This was my solution to the problem and since I don't use the rinse cycle, I can't use soap.

And yes, I see the chalky smear as soon as I hang the items on the line, before they dry.  It just looks really sad when I put them on the bed and they look dirtier than before I washed them.


Judith, I think your are right.

There needs to be room for all of that lint to slosh around and leave with the water.

I grew up with a washing machine repair person and he was always reminding us to fill the washer with water first then add the clothes and not to just stuff them in there. 



I think the problem with big bulky items like the bedspread and sheets is the they are don't have space to let the lint float away.  Next time I wash, I will try washing them without the other clothes and see if this helps.


I think the problem with my clothes is that they are polyester and are a lint magnet when in the washer.  Unfortunately, they were bought when I had a job that I dealt with the public and had to look professional.

Are they related to the squash?  I couldn't resist asking ...

Those black pieces look like something from a sprinkler system or the sprinkler kind of septic system.  The something I am referring to is the sprinkler heads and/or what the heads are attached to.

I will be real surprised if I am right.

Thank you, it is working now!  And I can see the Pie Forum.
I have not gotten any "gateway timeout notices".  Since you get the same message must be something going on.
I clicked on this thread:

It says: 

What, no PIE! This area is only for members who have PIE. Getting PIE is easy. Learn more here or just buy some now.




I looked at my Pie transactions and I have a piece of Pie.

Also I cannot find the Pie Forum??
Is it something like this:

I can imagine rich folks back in the 1800's sitting around in the parlor watching the Magic Lantern.

Here are some slides to give you an idea what they looked like:
