Dear Thank You
There are ways to clean a chinchilla coat, but full immersion washing is not one of them.
People of size should wear large hats.
Yes, mesh handbags will be quite popular for the next few years.

I have taken to reading these aloud to Mr Spookcat. He said he was just waiting for the lightning one... ^^;
Time spent with cats is never wasted.

1.  No Chincilla for you, they can be washed infrequently.  Get a hamster or a hamster coat instead
2.  To make your face look less fat, wear a big hat.  A small hat would say "Look,  I'm all face".  Only go big.
3. Mesh bags are always in favor.  Don't put your hamster in it.

1. A white fur coat would not be easy to clean if it gets dirty often.  Avoid it.
2.Only wear a small hat with a full face if you are a vaudeville act out for yucks. Otherwise, go with a bigger hat.
3. Yes.

1. Washed, no. Cleaned, yes. Take it to a professional fur cleaner. If you can’t do that don’t buy one.

2. If you’ve got a big melon, it doesn’t matter what size hat you wear, you’ve still got a big melon. But if I were you, I’d opt for the 10 gallon hat rather than the 5 gallon one.

3. Yes, they’re great for putting potatoes in. For purses, hell if I know so I’m going to go with no, not in 1919.

1. I have seen a chinchilla in a swimming pool so yes, you can wash it.

2. Large hat, a small hat would make you look like a pumpkin,.

3. Yes, mesh bags are going to be all the rage straight through the 20's

Pumpkin...weren't pumpkins once a hot topic in another thread?

Passing on Chinchilla lady. My undefeated status remains intact,

Greetings @StarrMountain
I was laughing out loud as I read @Whistler 's comments. I was not sure how to respond to these funny comments. I used the old expression “Know your onions” to acknowledge that the comments were correct.
https://english.stackexchange.com/questions/115308/whats-the-origin-of-the-saying-know-your-onions

I never heard of onions as a battery source. My dear Aunt Deanie believed that onions was a cure for a fever. If you have a high fever, cut up an onion into pieces. Take the onion pieces and put them in your sock. At bedtime put your “onion socks” on your feet and go to sleep. This will bring down your fever.  Aunt Deanie was born in 1923.
@Hey there   ;)
There may be some truth to onions helping with fever.
Mainstream medical pages online discount it (they would lose money if more people used the old remedies.)  ;)
But, onions contain salicylic acid - a great anti-bacterial / anti-viral, used to treat acne, warts, and a myriad of other nuisances.
So, there probably is some merit to using it.
The feet will readily absorb - through the skin - almost as quickly as the interior of the mouth.
(Try taking a peeled garlic section and stand on it. Within a minute or quicker, you'll be able to actually smell it on your breath.)
Quote
Onion is rich in several phytonutrients that are recognized as important elements of the Mediterranean diet but it has received attention also for its biological properties and potential application in the treatment and prevention of a number of diseases [34].
