I have two of these nice little Whirlpool washers at the house but no dryer. In Mexico hardly anyone has dryers except the laundry's (lavanderias). I've done my own laundry for the last three years but what are you going to do when it rains for two weeks. Indoor clotheslines kinda work but they get in the way and the clothes take forever to dry. A perfect time to have my laundry done and a pillow case full only cost 35 pesos (about $3)
Speaking of rain, I have a hose running to the street to keep the pool from overflowing into the patio, the palapa leaks, the roof leaks and crabs find their way into the house regularly. That's just the house that I am house sitting. The roof leaks on my house as well so am waiting for a dry spell, that by the looks of it will never come. This rain is from the remnants of tropical storm Arlene that crossed Mexico from the Gulf.
