Best Answer

A laundress is a woman who makes a living by doing laundry. Contrary to popular image, medieval people both bathed and washed their clothing regularly. Before modern technology, doing laundry was a major chore, so those who could afford it could either employ servants for this task, or send their clothes and linens to be cleaned by a laundress.
