Washers - yes, but no dryers... how do you dry clothes in Budapest?

Marilyn Tassy :

Think next ,"kunk up" we may just purchase a new coil or whatever for the water heater unit. Much better then changing out the entire heater as it is hung up on the wall overhead.

I think you're probably right, might as well get a whole new one.  I know the type you mean - the big white cylinder.  Not very expensive but not great looking either.  We have a gas boiler that does the house heating but also has a built in 40 litre buffer tank for hot water on demand.

Growing up in S. Ca. I always sort of freak when using the bath, think OH GOD not an earthquake while I'm in here!
Every place seems to have it's good and bad thing, the water does taste good enough from the taps here although we still filter all of our drinking and cooking water.

In Vegas you really could not drink the tap water. It was horrid tasting, could smell every drop of clor and chems they added to the filtering  of the recycled water.
It is actually very unhealthy to shower in a closed room with the hot water coming out of the taps in Vegas, not good for your lungs to breath in that stuff.
We bought a PUR water filter for the tap where we drank from, my son even refused to use that, he bought glass bottles of mountain spring water to drink. That cost a ton every month and the recycling bin was always overfilled with bottles.
In the long run I wish to buy a unit to make distilled water.
They do sell small units for about $150. here but they only produce I think a liter or so a day.
My husband was playing about making his own over the stove with glass. Tasted great but it only produced less then 8 oz. a day doing it by hand.

Earthquakes not really on the radar here but they do happen.  Mrs Fluffy can remember one in the 1960s.  I was also in one in Kosovo. Quite a strange feeling to feel that "ripple" across the ground. Scared the hell out of everyone. 

I'm not that impressed with distilled water My SIL has a water softener in her house.  The water tastes revolting.  They have special drinking  water tap fitted next to the normal tap.  All the utility taps - basins, baths, showers are all supplied from this water softening machine so they don't have to clean them like we do.  But not for drinking.

Marilyn Tassy :

It's easier to add vinegar say to your washing machine every so often but impossible to to to your water heater unit as far as I can figure out.

Yes, it's true, quite difficult to blitz your water heater with vinegar. You can get a special cleaner in Aldi or Lidl which will go in the dishwasher or washing machine but no idea on the water heater.  We don't use vinegar on them because it's a bit smelly so we use these little bottles from the supermarket.  But we often use vinegar to dissolve the gunk off the taps as I said.

Vinegar is a "gift from God" have been seriously drinking one tbs. of Organic Apple Cider in one cup of filtered water every morning for the last 5 months. It works.
It is a great benefit for anyone.
Helps with arthritis, high BP, digestive issues and many other things.
Bought some here in HU, good enough, not as "tasty" as Braggs brand from the US but for now will do.At least it has the "mother"! Enzymes that is...
Thinking of finding a source of organic apples and making my own vinegar.
Will be looking into a source for iodine soon. A few drops per day is a anit- chemtrail remedy.

I'd never heard of Mother of Vinegar before. I had to look it up.  I am wondering how you get some?

Do you really believe that chemtrail conspiracy theory?

Yes, I do believe the chemtrail conspiracy.
I know sounds lame but why on earth are there jets crisscrossing the skies all the time.
Don't have too many in Budapest, maybe 2 or 3 in the mornings but anyone coming from Las Vegas has to be blind not to have noticed a checker board pattern in the skies, a dull headache and general lethargic feeling most days.
I asked my airline mechanic bro about them, he laughed at me and said it was just condensation from large amounts of planes that are in the skies at all times.
All I know is when I was a teen I'd often go to the park, lay down on my back on the grass and meditate while looking at the clouds, ( Daydream believer?)
The skies do not look a thing like they did 50 years ago.
I know the BIO shops in HU sell organic apple cider vinegar, bought some for 1,400 forints in a herb/tea shop near the large market hall but have since found anohter source at the BIO shop for less then 1,000 and that brand comes in a glass bottle, the other was in plastic which isn't that great.
It seems easy enough to produce your own but it takes several months to ferment and you need organic apples.
I suppose this should be moved over to "anything else".
