It is easy to find a person to do the wash in the house. Most homes do not have washing machines; it is more common for laundry to be done by hand by the women of the house or by a paid helper. Even in houses where there is a washing machine, the laundry is hung out in the sun to dry. Dry cleaners are available for fine fabrics but at a high cost.
