Truth be told… Faye and I do have a lady who does our laundry, except for our bed sheets and our underwear. Mrs. Tiw’s sons pick up and drop off our laundry each day – what a blessing and and a help!!!
It’s very culturally appropriate to shower MANY times a day. Why? Because it’s so hot and sweating is inevitable. Thai people are very sensitive to BO and so one really does need to shower quite frequently. The result? Lots of laundry to be done. And wearing ironed clothes is also important – basically looking (and smelling!) “neat and tidy” is how I’ve heard it described.
