My neighbor tells me they have it for 2 and a half years and I never had
such terrible problem up until late August.
So there was definitely something happened and now I am receiving a S9+10
harsh every time they do their clothes washing (mostly on weekend mornings
when I am in the contest and beaming to EU through their house, hi!).
Sorry to (probably) disappoint you...
I'm just trying to prepare all possible stuff now to be ready for the visit
