I could easily spend a large portion of my day doing laundry. People here do laundry every morning and I see now why this is so. It takes a long time!
The typical washing machine here in Tuis is one that requires you to first hand scrub your clothes, then have it soak in a gentle cycle, then hand rinse, then machine spin (the most helpful thing the machine does), then hang your laundry to dry. What isn't dry after a day is then put in the dryer to get out any dampness (when it isn't standing in a pool of rainwater).
Laura loves to help me with laundry. She likes to also copy what I'm doing and wash all her doll clothing.
