Mensagem:  Fran, is "tanque de lavar roupas" a "laundry sink"?

They are common here in Costa Rica where they are called "pilas" (yes, just like "pia" in Portuguese).  They are used for washing clothing, dishes, and babies.  I'm being very serious.  Only wimps believe in germs! 

I haven't seen a "washboard" for years.  We used to use the word for "badly maintained dirt road".  Driving down a washboard road will shake loose your fillings.  Maybe that's what happened to my hair...
