The World’s Largest Laundromat

Dhobi Ghat is the world’s largest outdoor laundry! It’s located in Mumbai, and it’s just huge! In this open-air laundromat clothes are washed by hand by washers or “Dhobi.”

Most of the clothes laundered Dhobi Ghat come from Mumbai’s hotels and hospitals. However, some Dhobi go door-to-door to collect family linens for washing.

Once clean, items are hung to dry before being transported back to hotels and hospitals they came from. Long hours and a lot of muscle power keep Dhobi Ghat running as you will see in this episode.
