if they had a few washing machines they could have time to develop science, decent music and cars that dont look 50 years old when new

Viva la Science!

I dont know how they would seperate each persons items. I like to get my clothes back if someone else is washing them.

"Course they consider their clothes clean. These are the same people who wash their face with cow urine."

Ah, ignorance has no bounds.

Believe it or not, those clothes come out cleaner than yours from your washing machine. I had an extremely muddy rugby jersey from which I could not remove the stains after several washes. When I went to visit my grandparents in India, the maid had a go at it with these "primitive" techniques and gave it back to me spotless.

Not trying to be racist or anything with that statement, its the honest damn truth!

^LOL...that`s a funny line about building more McDonalds....sad but true.

Oh and don`t laugh people, those are actually the clothes YOU bring to the dry-cleaners. Everything is outsourced now, even your laundry. :-P

^^ "yeah they should definitely install running water."

WTF? India is practically a 3rd-world country. Installing running water in many areas is not an option; they don`t have the infrastructure, the water and/or cash to spare, and besides the population is too high to set up an effective running water system. This is how people have to live their lives, it`s not like they have a choice.

This idiotic comment (like many idiotic comments on this string, mostly from Americans) is like saying "There`s a famine in Ethiopia? That`s their own fault, they should definitely build a few more McDonalds".

What if Indian people DO smell, but I like the smell? Does that make me racist?

Yes that`s gross. And yes that`s how it was done years ago. But people only lived into their 30`s in the old days also. So it`s not being ignorant or stuck up to say it. They also swim and bathe in the Ganges river. The same river that they place their dead in. But that is their way of life so it`s understandable that it seems foreign/wrong/gross to the outside. That said, I`m going to hug my washing machine later today.

Sambi,

Sure, you`re not "rascit". You just think that all Indian people smell.

Nothing racist about that at all.

Actually, this is the WAY OF THE FUTURE! It not only saves water and electricity (thereby reduces greenhouse gases) but also keeps you physically fit!

People are saying "ew" because indeed the water does look dirty. In the old days, people used to go to the river to wash their clothes. Running water took the dirty used water away and you could rinse out your wash. Here the water does not run, meaning all articles are cleansed with the same used water. Also,towards the beginning of the video, one of the men was rinsing himself in that same water.Its not about being rich or spoiled, if I filled my tub with water, took a bath, washed my neighbor`s clothing and then did your laundry in that same water, would your clothing really be clean?
Still, fact is that the whites look amazingly white and damn, scrubbing clothing with a brush? I`m sure that its A LOT BETTER than any washing machine can achieve by simply circling clothing in a tub of water.

Everyone has their clothes washed this way. In fact even though my family could afford a machine we still had it sent out. My mothers silks went to a lady down the street but everything else was just as you saw.

Gross?! Not April fresh! Spoilt little rich twats. Its a great service, cheap as chips, and the clothes come back clean, and neatly pressed. The fibres can take a bit of damage from the thrashing, but I think thats more of an indictment on poor quality western clothes than their techniques.

I saw a great peace a while back on how western inventions (in this case the washing machine) are destroying Indian culture.
