Cleaning Ektorp Blekinge White Slip Covers

I have always struggled with cleaning my Ektorp Blekinge Slip Covers, so I decided to experiment.  I have always washed all of my slip covers, which consist of two couches and two Ektorp chairs, which consists of the Jennylund and the arm chair. 

I take all of the covers off and go to a nearby Laundromat where they have 75lbs washing machines and I put all of the slip covers in at once.  I put the cycle on heavy and I use hot water and for my detergents I use oxyclean, arm and hammer and borax for an extra boost to my detergent.

What I have found is that you can air dry your slip covers instead of having them air dry and it really doesn't result in any shrinkage. 

Pon Thai Bistro

 Pon Thai Bistro is located in Washington Square in Brookline.  It is set along a row of stores not far from the Route 9 entrance.  I was there recently and really enjoyed the Drunken Noodles.

The taste was with a mixture of essence and the right intensity.  The wait staff was very attentive and the atmosphere was quaint and desirable.

The second time I went there I got an order of Drunken Noodles to go and they tasted the same as if I sat in.  Don't take away that I only tried the Drunken Noodles I will be back again to taste some of their other famous delights.
