I saw a great peace a while back on how western inventions (in this case the washing machine) are destroying Indian culture.

Gross?! Not April fresh! Spoilt little rich twats. Its a great service, cheap as chips, and the clothes come back clean, and neatly pressed. The fibres can take a bit of damage from the thrashing, but I think thats more of an indictment on poor quality western clothes than their techniques.

i agree with bankvole, but in the end you get what you pay for.

Ew... Ew... I tried to think of something else to say, but it was just kinda icky.

Everyone has their clothes washed this way. In fact even though my family could afford a machine we still had it sent out. My mothers silks went to a lady down the street but everything else was just as you saw.

What if someone leaves change in their pocket? someone standing there could get it lodged in their skull

To everyone saying "ew", this is how people used to wash their clothes in the old days!

But yeah... not somewhere to send your delicates!

People are saying "ew" because indeed the water does look dirty. In the old days, people used to go to the river to wash their clothes. Running water took the dirty used water away and you could rinse out your wash. Here the water does not run, meaning all articles are cleansed with the same used water. Also,towards the beginning of the video, one of the men was rinsing himself in that same water.Its not about being rich or spoiled, if I filled my tub with water, took a bath, washed my neighbor's clothing and then did your laundry in that same water, would your clothing really be clean?
Still, fact is that the whites look amazingly white and damn, scrubbing clothing with a brush? I'm sure that its A LOT BETTER than any washing machine can achieve by simply circling clothing in a tub of water.

God Bless America and modern science!!

Course they consider their clothes clean. These are the same people who wash their face with cow urine.

Whew... they didnt discover the river yet, i think, Azul.
14 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Tuesday 9/18/07 - 11:31:52 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, i'm sure they will get the same white sheet back...

Movie wouldn't load...

Actually, this is the WAY OF THE FUTURE! It not only saves water and electricity (thereby reduces greenhouse gases) but also keeps you physically fit!

those people stink to me. even the one's here in america smell awful "like cumin spice" or that day i forgot to wear deodorant , not being rascit, just discribing the way the world effects me. dont get ur panties in a bunch before you agree w/me.
14 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Tuesday 9/18/07 - 2:34:50 PM EST (GMT-5)
Sambi,

Sure, you're not "rascit". You just think that all Indian people smell.

Nothing racist about that at all.

Yes that's gross. And yes that's how it was done years ago. But people only lived into their 30's in the old days also. So it's not being ignorant or stuck up to say it. They also swim and bathe in the Ganges river. The same river that they place their dead in. But that is their way of life so it's understandable that it seems foreign/wrong/gross to the outside. That said, I'm going to hug my washing machine later today.
