This book was created using the founder of Mindful Gifts CIC ( Vicki Phipps) mothers poems she had written about what wash days used to be like.
When Vicki read the poems, she could picture what it used to be like before we had washing machines, tumble dryers and electric irons. She thought the poems matched with appropriate images would make an ideal reminiscence tool for those who could relate to what washdays used to be like. The book has been purchased by libraries, as well as care homes and hospitals across the country. Vicki suggests to use the book with a bar of carbolic soap, some dolly pegs and Reckitts Blue (Dolly Blue) as these helps to stimulate the different senses which provoke different memories. All of which are available from Mindful Gifts CIC. support us
We created this book so that people can document their life stories, preserve memories and leave a legacy behind.
We supply the books to care homes and hospitals across the country, as well as to individuals and this is our bestselling product on our website.
