    Palo-palo

    Minsan nung napasama ako sa probinsya ng kaibigan sa Quezon, napansin ko na yung isang ale naglalaba sa labas ng bahay niya gamit ang palo-palo.

    Matagal-tagal na rin akong nakakita ng naglalaba na gamit ang palo-palo. At naisip ko para saan nga ba ang palo-palo at bakit gamit ito sa paglalaba. Nakakatanggal ba ito ng dumi ng damit? Tulong sa pagpiga ng damit?

    Ano sa tingin niyo?

    Pampiga lang yata talaga. I don't see how it can make anything cleaner. But it does make you jeans wear faster, give it that beaten up (with a stick, on a big rock. Because that what it is literally) look. Or generally make all your clothes look more "dugyot-ish" even if it was just new a while ago.

    Who invented this medieval washing method anyway?

    can't say that for the rest of our "kababayan" who can't afford a washing machine.

    Pang heavy fabric lang yan at malimit sa may running or streaming water ng ilog ginagamit. Hindi pwede sa tubig gripo at batya kundi nagkanda yupi yupi ang batya. Bihira na gamitin kasi bihira na naglalaba sa ilog.

    pampalambot yata sya ng dumi, like libag or putik, so pag kinuskos mo na at sinabon, madali nang matatanggal.

    It can squeeze out the dirt from the fabric with every hit. Self defense na rin kung may manyak na rapsit sa tabing ilog.

    Dagdag workout yan. Nakakapagod nga naman kung puro left and right, left and right. Dapat may up and down din.

    depende sa naglalaba, pero therapeutic din kasi ang palo-palo... imbes na sa tao (read: amo) mo ibuhos ang sama ng loob mo, sa damit nya ka na lang maghuramentado...

    Naalis ng palu-palo ang siksik na dumi lalo yung mahirap kusutin at kapag binabanlawan na, magaling pang-alis ng sabon sa fibers ng damit. Fabric softner has nothing on the good old palu-palo. I don't use fabric softener in my laundry. I use a little bit of vinegar instead. Ang tuwalya kasi hind na gaanong ka-absorbent kapag palaging ginagamitan ng fabric softener. I attended a mini-seminar before at actually ang mga damit na ginamitan ng fabric softener mas madaling masunog kesa sa hindi ginamitan.

    Ginagamit yan sa kawit noong panahon ni Gen. Aguinaldo.
    Sabi nila nakakatanggal daw ng dumi yun kasi kada palo nila, tumatalsik ang dumi.

    gamit ko lang ito sa basahan, yung pang lampaso sa sahig.

    o kaya naman right after mapagalitan ni Nanay, dinadaan sa palu palo kasi bawal sumagot.

    Kapag t-shirt lang kasi ang pipigain habang nilalabhan, madali lang. Pero kung kumot na (o anumang mabigat na tela) tapos mag-isa ka lang naglalaba, ang hirap pigain. Minsan kahit kaming dalawa ng kuya ko ang hahawak sa magkabilang dulo para i-twist, di pa rin napipiga talaga at natitira pa rin ang sabon. Pero kapag ginamitan ko na ng palo-palo, napipisil talaga yung kumot para ma-squeeze out yung sabon, para mas madali na siya banlawan.
