"Washing rug carpets" Kerava Local Custom Tip by Zirpsis
Kerava Local Customs: 1 reviews and 2 photos
People like to wash their rug carpets with traditional pine soap every summer. It can no longer be done at river or lake shores in Finland so town council provides this carpet washing station for the towns people. The place is called Amanda and there are water outlets, basins and tables for scrubbing. The used waters go to town sewege system, not to the ground. The logs are for hanging wet carpets to drip dry. The smell of pine soap is a sure sign that the rug washing season has started. Many couples come together and men and women participate in the work equally. It's very relaxing and you can make new aquaintances while you scrub your carpets side by side.
