Obviously there are differences from country to country. (language, culture, job market etc)
Good or bad?
U.S: machine wash everything weekly and then clothes put in dryer so all we gotta do is fold clothes when it’s all done.
China: wash clothes daily by hand (or small washing machine). rarely does anyone use dryer here. They hang everything up to dry in front of windows. It is said that it’s healthy to have the sun’s heat and light to dry the clothes.
