Wash Day

Someone asked about laundry. We have an electric washer at home but no dryer--standard for most missionaries here. Clothes are hung up or put on a drying rack in their apartments.

At the Office we have the luxury of a dryer, one of the few in the entire city, we think. Water collects into a reservoir that we empty into a near-by sink.

The front loading washers take about one hour per load or more; the dryer takes over two hours.

This would make me want to own 2 shirts, 2 pairs of socks, 2 skirts. That's it.

BTW, the Elders tell me that a few apts. do NOT have washers and that the missionaries wash their clothes in the tub. Some have "spinners."
