Friday Wash Day

Everyone has those wash day blues …. the day you have to do your washing and clothes ironing. Well in Mumbai, India this is done on a different scale at the Dhobi Ghat where hundreds of workers toil away washing, drying and ironing clothes sent from all over the city. Miraculously the clothes end up back at their respective owners. These wash pits are used to scrub and pound the clothes before rinsing, drying and finally pressed using charcoal fired heavy irons.
