"Cheap Laundry" Top 5 Page for this destination Dhobi Ghat - Mumbai's Laundry Tip by keeweechic

Dhobi Ghat - Mumbai's Laundry, Mumbai: 18 reviews and 44 photos


The clean laundry is thrown into vats of boiling starch, hung out to dry and then pressed. It is then delivered back to the owner for a very small fee. If you have laundry done while staying in Mumbai, this is where it could end up. The jobs of the dhobiwallahs are usually handed down through the generations.
