Any allowance is exempted only to the extent of actual expenditure incurred for the purpose for which it is given.
As far as I know, if you are required to wear a certain type of uniform while at work, then only you are entitled for washing allowance exemption.If you wear routine clothes at work, washing allowance is not deductible.

Except travel allowance of Rs. 800 per month, all other amounts of monthly allowance is taxable. Reimbursement of washing expenses would be exempt.
I think the only other allowance that is tax free to certain extent is education allowance.

I think the only other allowance that is tax free to "certain extent" is education allowance. Please may i know what do you mean by "certain extent" here.

Certain extent means that there is a cap on the amount.
For example transport allowance is exempt for up to rs. 800 per month. Beyond that it is taxable. Education allowance used to be tax free for rs. 500 per month per child. I am told it has been increased, but I have not had time to verify the current limit.
