Valylo – Hutsul Washing Machine

Valylo is a sort of a Hutsul washing machine. Valylo is made like this: a hole is dug at a convenient place in the water close to the bank of a mountain stream, or a natural slough is deepened. Then a wheel, similar to the one used in water mills, is fixed in the hole. The wheel churns water and the lizhnyk stays in the valylo until it becomes compressed almost like felt.
