How unhygenic is constant handwashing of laundry?

For various reasons, it's significantly more convenient for me to handwash my dirty clothes/linens with detergent in the bathtub, and dry them on a rack in the living room.

Like a bailout, but for laundry.

Is there a laundromat or cleaners in NYC that will hand wash clothes? [more inside]

No, I don't want a free set of steak knives.

Remember those egg-shaped handle-powered washing machines that were advertised on infomercials in the '90s? Has anyone actually used one? Did it actually work? And in these electricity-conscious, water-saving times, has the concept of a human-powered hand-washing machine evolved into something a bit, well, less daggy? [more inside]

Can I hand wash 'dry clean only' wool pants?

I've got several pairs of lightweight wool dress pants from Ann Taylor. They are marked dry clean only. Suppose I hand-wash these pants in cold water and lay them flat on a towel to air-dry. Will the laundry gods punish my impudence?
