Laundry doesn’t smell fresh

Hi guys! I was wondering about my laundry. We moved and got a new washing machine and I don’t smell the scent of the fabric softener. Is something wrong with the washing machine? I used this softener before in my parents washing machine and it works fine.

    Often at this time of year I find myself having to clean my washing machine out so that it doesn't smell "funky"....are your clothes just smelling neutral when you wash and dry them, or do they have a weird smell? Usually I run a cycle on our washer at the highest water level, and add in some white vinegar and baking soda...let that do its thing...and it tends to smell fresh after that. The only other thing I was thinking of is if the water level is higher than what you were previously used to and it's diluting your detergent more so that the fresh laundry detergent smell isn't so pronounced.

    The clothes just smell neutral, but some has a faint scent of the detergent but not the softener. Does the minutes of 脱水 affects the scent of the detergent/softener?

    @thepangans I don't think the time cycle would affect it, more just the liters of water. I find that when I do a small load and keep the water level low, my clothes smell more of detergent than when I am washing a full load and have the machine basically at capacity.

    You can get a washing machine cleaner from the store. You pour it in and run the washer without clothes, and cleans it out and helps the smell!!

    @reishiitravels do i need to clean it even if it’s brand new? The machine is just a month old.

    You shouldn't need to clean it when it is still so new. Is there like a special slot on the side to put your softener into that will let it drip in slowly?

What's the best online teaching option?

I'm looking to fill some free time with online teaching, either through Skype or the company's native platform. I don't want to do private lessons where I have to gather my own students; I want to work under a company. Do you guys have any recommendations for that? If you do, could you give me a bit more info about pay and your own experiences/what you've heard?

Sending parcels overseas with Japan Post

I think I may have touched on this in one or two blog posts, and this is as much an airing of frustration as it is a question. For the last few years I've used but one Japan Post office, close to where I work. I'm a regular there when it comes to sending parcels home for birthdays, Christmas etc. In the early day, I would just be asked to fill out that little green slip about the contents of the parcel, and would also be asked if there was a letter inside. (To which I always replied "No," as it makes things more expensive.) The next stage was that staff would then started to look at what I had written on the form and if there was anything that might be construed as needing a battery, they would ask me to write "No battery" if one wasn't included. Are they ever? Fine. Then things moved onto asking me what was in the parcel before handing me the green slip, so I felt like I was having to announce to the office staff what a cheap skate I am when it comes to presents. And then we would do the green slip, and the "battery" questions. Now another layer has been added -- on top of the questions, the battery check and the green form -- I now get a separate form, a kind of tick-the-box checklist through which I declare that I'm not sending any cigarette lighters, matches, sprays etc lest I face prosecution. Then we get onto the questions, and all the rest of it. I'm just wondering if others are being taken through the same process when they send things overseas with JP, or is it just that particular branch ... or just me. It's kind of taking the fun out of trying to be a good uncle, brother, son, friend etc. Still, at least they've stopped asking me if there's a letter in the parcel.
