Spring clean – nude of course! Being nude, I'm already sweating. What if the postman rings the doorbell because he needs to deliver a parcel? Cautious naturists ask before they open the door: "Does it bother you, if we are nude? Usually the answer comes after only a short pause for thought: mostly saying: "No, no, it doesn't bother me!". If you then open door and are actually only wearing sandals, you will sometimes be told: "Oh my, you are really nude!". But then when we offer to put something on, they don't this it is necessary. Soon everyone from couriers, postmen, and chimney sweeps will know, what to expect and nude encounters become an everyday matter of course.
Working on the computer – naturally nude. Thanks to the Internet, you can access (almost) all computers in the world from your office at home – combined with the freedom of working from home. For example, saving getting changed into unnecessary clothing when it's warm enough. Most companies have a certain standard for their employees when it comes to clothing. In some places this can go as far as the mandatory dark suit with a white shirt and tie.
Some time ago, when I had a visit from a real estate broker from a major bank, who wanted to inform himself before participating in a nude hike, whose company and hiking guidance he would entrust himself to. In a relaxed atmosphere, he first untied his silk tie, before we left for a few hours, where we talked about hiking in the buff and other nude activities.
I would accept tying a tie if the company image were at stake. But would I rather work without a shirt, trousers and jacket if the temperature were right! The quality of my work would be better – after all, multiple concentration problems, breaks to moan about sweating and all absences due to illness due to a summer cold due to working in sweaty clothes would be avoided. At tea time in the study, the invigorating drink provides a desired refreshment and encouragement. Only moments separate us from the nature-conscious enjoyment of a natural Darjeeling First Flush from the tea campaign, which is cultivated in a controlled and certified organic cultivation: delicious!
For more than 25 years, the tea campaign, initiated by Prof. Faltin (FU Berlin), has been famous for its revolutionary business concepts, that have been used, to mix up the market of the established tea industry and to market low-pollutant top Darjeelings in packages of 500 and 1000 g. Recently, the washing campaign (in German) is trying, to snatch market share from industry giants Unilever and Henkel with an environmentally friendly detergent concept - with beneficial approaches for the environment and for our wallets.
Basic principle is, to use a detergent whose composition corresponds to the hardness of the locally available water. This allows harmful substances (detergent surfactants and softening chemicals) to be avoided or reduced – to benefit all of us and the environment.
Adding oxygen bleach turns the normal (colour) detergents into a full detergent for white laundry. Find out about this alternative in good time, before you buy a industrial product from a supermarket shelf (then you will know, what your environmental impact is!).
Once a year, I choose a day for cleaning windows. When after the cold winter the day temperatures finally become bearable again, the view through the window panes must also become clear again. This can only be done before Easter, if Easter is late, but before Whitsun it is actually always possible.
As with all housework, I am naturally nude when cleaning windows. Once I was "caught" by my neighbour: "Oh, I thought you only hike in the buff," she asked. She has known my nudity for years. "No, of course I'm always nude, when it's warm enough. And when I'm cleaning windows, I quickly start sweating anyway, so clothes are exactly the wrong thing!", I replied. "I wonder if I'll try that.", she answered skeptically.
