In my housing society there are 4-5 laundry men who daily come and collect clothes for washing or ironing from the different houses and give them back after two days and collect the money on monthly basis. In some families washing machine is there but as the husband and wife both are working they don't use their washing machine and if they use then it is occasionally only and give their clothes to the laundry man only.
Knowledge is power.
Many people are using this facility in Hyderabad. Many apartments will have a watchman. Generally, they will do this laundry service also. The majority of the families living in that complex will use him for this and it will be a way to get a good additional amount to the watchman. In villages still, there are people who carry th clothes wash them. iron them and return back. But in cities, only ironing is being done by these people.
