“Use of inappropriate means of washing”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2012

The following are the things observed during my visit
1) Use of chemicals which affect the quality of clothes.
2) Charges are too less hence are the services mean to be of the same rate??
3) The chemicals used by you for example bermacel (bleaching water), black soap which is used for washing dishes in low line areas it also causes diseases like skin cancer, fungal diseases.

i would like you to look into the matter and if possible come up with a solution. Awaiting your replies.


Regards.

“A New Perspective”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2012

We stopped on the bridge to look down on Dhobi Ghat and saw the people washing the laundry. We did a tour with Reality Tours of Dharavi and we stopped here along the way. The people who work here, also live here and come mainly from the north. It is a highly efficient process and is very interesting to see. I did see other tourists in the actual area taking pictures.
