Spanish in Argentina


A laundromat sign

In Argentina, it is not uncommon for middle and upper income families to have a hired servant for housework who is paid extra to do the laundry. There are also laundry services where clothes can be dropped off and picked up. Laundromats with coin-operated machines are easy to find, but there are no clothes dryers. Damp clothes are taken home and hung on a line to dry.
