About the Event

Mahalaxmi Dhobi Ghat Mumbai is the world's largest open-air laundry. People bring dirty clothes from all over Mumbai. And hundreds of washermen and women – dhobis, work their shifts through the day to get the clothes back to their fresh, crisp and spotless state.


While some dhobi families take help from machines too, much of the activities at this Dhobi Ghat of Mumbai is taken care of by hands. Every family member takes care of their part. One person flogs the clothes in the washing trough, while others hang them out to dry. Then someone will mint the clothes using bulky charcoal irons.


Things to do at Mumbai Dhobi Ghat

1. Watching the organised chaos at the laundry – Dhobi Ghat laundry Mumbai is one of the top tourist destinations of the city. It buzzes with washers and the smell of washing soda and other chemicals all day long. You can watch the well-managed manual laundry system here. While one dhobi sorts the clothes as per their colours and types, another one will beat the stains out of clothes; and yet another member of the family hangs them on the lines to dry.


Mumbai Dhobi Ghat also has separate sections to boil water and wash infected clothes from hospitals. And while the washed clothes are being ironed before delivery, more porters come in with fresh piles of dirty clothes.


2. Knowing about the life of washermen and women – This Dhobi Ghat in Mumbai is managed by the people who work there, and they’re more than eager to share their stories with the travellers. Learn about the entire process, hear about their daily struggles at work and play a game or two of marbles with the kids there. You might also grab some helpful washing tips to take back home.


3. Clicking colourful photographs of clotheslines – Dhobi Ghat Mumbai sightseeing is also popular among the photographers. Rows of colourful clothes drying in the sun, streamlined display of monochrome linens from hospitals and hotels, and happy faces behind the water splashes are all different frames you can capture. The patient photographers can also click piles of clothes loaded on porters’ backs, their cycles and handcarts wheeled in and out.
