"I wash clothes with soap"
Translation:Ninafua nguo na sabuni
What's the difference between kufua and kuosha? Are they used in different contexts or is it an error that 'ninaosha nguo na sabuni' isn't accepted?
I think you have to use "kufua" with clothes. I don't recall that "kuosha" has been ever used for clothes, but for dishes etc.
Can we have an explanation about the difference between osha, fua and safisha? It seems like guesswork most of the time to know which to use.
kufua = to wash, to do the laundry
kuosha = to wash, to rinse
kusafisha = to clean, to wash, to rinse
(e.g. car, bucket, dishes (sometimes), child etc., but not own body)
