2) I have to take the bed sheets off the bed, wash them and put new sheets on the bed, tidy up my room, wipe counters , stove top , table and cupboards, polish my shoes and polish the furniture up
3) When I do the washing, first I sort the clothes and put them into the washing machine. Then I select the washing program and I start it.
