Well done on getting all your things back - it's like an early Christmas.

We didn't wash/clean any of our things.  I did run our sheets and towels through the wash but that's just me :-)

Enjoy   :clap:   We washed all the cutlery as we were not sure if our things were fumigated.  Our stuff was in storage for 4 months before loaded.

PS: No need to wash - except for Noodles's stuff - that you need to wash - thow everything in the dishwasher just incase. Noodles tummy might be more sensitive than yours
