It is up to the host family who does the laundry. Please discuss with your Shinshin and ensure that they know how to do laundry and work the machines in your home. If a housekeeper is doing laundry for other members of the family, it would be recommended that the Shinshin’s laundry is done for him/her as well. We encourage families to treat the ShinShinim as another member of their family.
