1.13 To wash clothes
The flashcards say "To wash clothes" = "Lavar la ropa". But clothes is plural? Why it is not "Lavar las ropas" ? Or is this an exception?
Just like we say 'the washing' - singular (not the washings lol) but there sure is alot of it
La ropa is a singular noun that usually refers to a plural concept (the clothing). It is like la gente (the people), which is also a singular noun that refers to a plural concept.
La gente allí es amable. (The people there are kind.)
