Washing clothes in the river is still normal way of doing laundry ,but way back it was little different they used special tools like- Washing bat, scrub board, metal boards to wash clothes stains were treated at home Simple washing boards were taken to the riverside, or rocks at the edge of the water was used as scrubbing surfaces. Slapping the dirt was the USB of this washing technique. They were also a kind of laundry called ‘Lye or Bucking’ were whites and off white clothes were soaked in water of ashes or coal which used to act has stain removers. Bucking was to involve lengthy soaking, here is where soap come into picture which was made of ash lye and animal fat also since this medieval era washermen washerwomen or dhobi comes to picture. India has a lot of history on this washer men, in India this is treated has a culture.


Later around 18th-century bleaching drying was made and also there use a huge metal tub to soak their dirty cloth and use to boil it this was a very common scene, soaps were dropped into hot water but again this soap was only used my upper commodity. By the end of the century, there were plenty of wrapped bars, soap flakes of commercial, branded laundry soap sold at moderate prices. Soap powder had been known for a few decades, and from about 1880 it was quite widely available. Developments in science, industry and commerce had a significant impact on household chores. Other changes in the course of the century included factory-made metal tubs starting to replace wooden ones. Mass-produced tongs were more affordable and more likely to replace sticks for lifting wet washing. Clotheslines, pegs, and pins became more widespread. Improvements in starch production led to a range of products with small differences, packaged differently, and aimed at different users, there were laundry services aimed at the “middling” people too. While the upper classes went on employing washer men/women, general servant there were various cheaper “send-out” laundry services in the later 19th century and early 20th, including laundries that brought both domestic laundry and linen from hotels etc. to a “hand-finished” standard The simplest, were wet wash and bag wash (UK) arrangements where you sent off a bundle of dirty laundry to be washed elsewhere. Ironing is done at home at this bottom end of the market. By the end of the 19th-century prototype of a washing machine was brought into use and commercialized widely.
