Answering Questions about Antarctica
75 Degrees South is the website for a the British Antarctical Survey. Simon Coggins and others answered questions for students in Queensland, Australia. This is one of my favorite sites.
Sheena asks: How do you wash and dry your clothes?
We have washing machines and tumble dryers just like back home. One difference is that we have to make sure that the machines are always full so we don't waste water. Our only source of water is to shovel snow into a tank which is melted to make water. It takes four people 15 minutes every day to shovel enough snow for the day so we are always trying to find ways to save water!
