We live a cushy life. Hot water at our finger tips, TV/Internet, stove to cook our food, refrigerator to store it. Dishwasher. Washing machine. Curling iron.
Must I say more?
My current WIP sends my heroine to a place without modern technology or electricity. I didn’t think too much on the premise until she needed to wash the dishes. I mean, it’s not like she could run to Price Chopper to get some dish soap.
I actually had to research how they washed dishes before Dawn was invented. Very sad. Cooking is another issue we (my heroine and I) are exploring. How did they bake bread? Where did they get the yeast?
