Found two happy fifteen cent dudes on my last junk shop jaunt. Knew someone who would want them... What was so cool was that they actually look like two guys I know who worked together. Black haired Kiwi and the other guy from Brazil.
The Brazilian has since left the area but I'm in contact with the Kiwi.
They were in good nick but fairly grubby. Into the wash house sink they went for a rinse in warm water to help shift dust.
Next was a soak in soap powder. And another rinse.
Graduated to the bath where they were washed gently with a flannel and bar soap. This is them on the second rinse. Happy and clean.
After a gentle toweling, they hung about for a while on the heated rail.
Then for some sunbathing in the lounge catching rays from the gas heater. (Winter time).
The next day they spent in the sunshine.
A little cologne, then packed up and ready to go. They scrubbed up really nicely. Recipient was pleased.
