I enjoy hand-washing my clothes and putting them away. Especially the ones I carefully selected and thus like very much.
It's one of those many simple household tasks that have a deep zen-like vibe to it if you put yourself it in the right mood and attempt to keep a household leaning towards minimalism. Pure bliss. And no, I'm not joking.
Household chores, such as washing clothes, hanging them to dry, washing dishes, going daily to the store because of lack of refrigeration, and managing a fire for dinner took up significant chunks of the day. The low-hanging fruit is gone so they're working on the smaller tasks now (roomba and laundry folding robot). If they can make them cheap enough, they could become ubiquitous and hit a home run.
