The wash house of Vauville borders the stream called "La Fontaine Teauvillaise". Until the 1960s, before the houses were connected to the drinking water network, the laundry was used by residents to wash clothes and exchange news. It was also used for washing apple bags at the end of the harvest, cider apples and marc canvas from the horse press following brewing. The men let the bags soak for a day or two, then they were brushed and rinsed.
