Many years ago I visited Lisbon, the capital of Portugal. One of the sites to see was the old district Alfama, also called the historic soul of Lisbon, and there hidden behind huge pillars were wash women at work. I watched a dozen women hand washing clothes and sheets in gigantic washtubs and filling the moist air with their loud voices and laughter. An unforgettable experience.
So living in a tiny place, where space is so precious, shouldn’t mean that you should join those Portuguese wash women. There are luckily quite some great washers out there that are combined with a dryer. Two appliances in one – perfect.
