Something struck me on a recent trip to China. Even in the big cities, you see washing hanging everywhere. Suspended from ingenious contraptions, on the outside of windows on tower blocks, to a duvet hung on a traffic barrier, balconies, even telephone and power lines. It seems even though the increasingly affluent Chinese, who are embracing all the conveniences of western lifestyles, don’t own dryers yet. In the west there is a social stigma about hanging laundry out in public, but not here.
