Scrub it... or it won't be clean.

I let the wife's faithful family servant hand wash my clothes ONCE. My underwear came back comically stretched out. Never again.

I agree that the commercial laundries are an unbeatable deal.

You wear underwear?:shock_40_anim_gif:I haven't owned underwear since 2002 when I moved here. My boys just get too hot!:laugh:

I've come around to that point of view also.

Well it certainly saves on the washing bill!

Aah the mystery of the Laundry room ! When we first arrived in 2011 we lived in the wifes very small  1 bedroom house which we demolished and built our 2 story home, and with the lots of left over wood the builders were paid extra to construct a Laundry room ! Funny i thought we had just bought a new single tub automatic washing machine ! Which was something i insisted on buying for my wife rather than seeing her sitting down on one of those mini stools scrubbing away all morning ! Silly me the washing machine uses too much water or its too noisy ! So i later suggested we got a helper to do the house cleaning and washing ! :hystery: i should have known better ! So the wifes daily routine regarding washing clothes is she normally wakes up at at around 2-3-4 am mon-fri to do the washing and cook breakfast before her sister leaves to teach at the school at 7am. And on sat and sun mornings if we dont go out then its both the wife and her sister chattering and scrubbing away doing the washing !

I have taken 2 loads of laundry to the local launderette this week, wash dry and fold total weight 4.5 kilos total cost 112.5 pesos. Even my wife sees the sense in taking it there instead of spending a couple of hours a day doing it herself.

Opposite with me. My GF never washes clothes unless she just bought them and wants to wear them the next day. It's ok tho..I knew when I first met her that she was lazy. Our housekeeper is her mom.:56da64af91f92_23_11_602:
