The Day of a Dirty Gourd

A day of the gourd bath..... One tub of dirty gourds.... need a scrubbing.
But first they need to soak to loosen up that grime! I wish I would had taken a picture of that dirty water that happened between the soaking and cleaned gourds! Icky!!!! So here they are all clean taking a quick bleach water bath before being dryed! When cleaning gourds work in small batchs. These took over two hours to scrub!


  1. I too work with gourds and know exactly what you went through. Definitely not a pleasant experience but a necessary one! I love your work. Come on over and check out mine: I have a giveaway going on for my followers!
