L. started work last Monday, and so I've also started "keeping house."

My first challenge: Laundry. The machines are entirely in Dutch:

So far, with the help of my macbook translator, I've discovered that met voorwas means "with preliminary wash" and kort means "short". Some words when translated don't make sense (e.g. kastdroog means "cupboard dry") and some words don't translate at all (e.g., hoofdwas).

I started pressing buttons, and so far it worked. Hopefully they all still fit after the wash and dry.
