Somehow the togas had to get clean and white. Here in the Laundry they were washed in urine and came out white and bright. How interesting. Do go see

This was one of the city's laundries and you can see some of the vats that were used to wash the clothes. It was also used for the preparation of cloth and wool.

This building was a laundry area for the Pompeii townspeople. It was interesting to learn about the laundry techniques used to launder clothes.

You might not think that you want to see an old laundry but the superb part of Pompeii is that you do get to see these buildings along with shops, inns and small houses along with the grand buildings. You are unlikely to miss this...More

This is yet another extraordinary example of a building that remained relatively intact. Of course Romans wanted their clothes to be cleaned and dyed or redyed and this was a typical example. Incredible to see the colour of the wall decorations still there

So interesting to see and to know how laundry was done by slaves and what was used (urine). Interesting that the building is still intact.
