JUST AS THE COMMERCIALS SAY:
Local Laundries Banish Housewife's Washday Blues
S* * * * * ** * *
By JACK BARENSE
Washday blues are non-existent
for those who have further com-
mitted themselves to the modern
world of specialization and mass
production by ,contributing their, ? k
few pounds of laundry to the tons
which weekly flow through Ann ,x>/
Arbor's commercial laundries.
The modern laundry plant is a
far cry from the individual house-
wife's meager utility room with s
a small washing machine, iron
and ironing board.,
* * *
A SUPER-WASHING machine
which handles 350 pounds of laun- *.
dry at once-compared with 8 to
10 pounds for the domestic ma-
chines - constitute the basic
equipment for any laundry, ac-
cording to M. Dalitz, manager of
one of the local plants.>
He explained that their opera-
tion was merely a matter of
pushing the right buttons, in
cluding adjustment for the right
temperature and soap solution
to correspond with type and
color of the fabrics being
A modern laundry plant usually
has a large unit which purifies
and softens all its water, Dalitz
said. "Water is processed," he said,
"until its hardness is zero, which
is softer than rain water.
AS FOR PURITY, a bacteria
count of water which was already
used to rinse clothes revealed that
it was even lower than city water."
The enigma concerning how
a large laundry manages to re-
turn to each of its customers the
same clothes it received from
FLAT IRON-Above is shown one of the huge stcam-heated machines used in an Ann Arbor
laundry to iron the not-so-fancy items such as sheets and towels. Each of the six rollers exerts a
pressure of 580 pounds.

them was explained away by
Dalitz who said two methods
are used. The first consists of
stamping each piece of apparel
with a code number where the
mark will not show.

With other items like handker-
chiefs, on which the customer
wouldn't appreciate a black laun-
dry mark, individual nets are used
as containers. These are tagged
for identification purposes.
* * *
"NETTING MAY be used trhiH
tect the stamped clothes too," said
Dalitz. "It minimizes wlearing and
possible tearing by the machines."
Laundries have eliminated the
housewife's problem of where
to hang the washed clothes to
dry by using large "'tumblers"
in which the dripping materials
are rotated for about 20 minutes
in a 160 degree temperature.
Another headache for many
housewives is ironing their hus-
bands shirts. To a modern laun-
dry this seems to be no particular
* * *
problem. Two women using special
steam presses can turn out nearly
a shirt a minute, according to the
* * *
DALITZ said that the biggest
saving for students who send outf
their laundry could be accom-
iplshed by taking advantage of
what he called the "student bundle
plan." Instead of pressing all the
clothes inclosed the laundry only
finishes the shirts and handker-
chiefs. These are charged for by
the piece while other items like
towels, and pyjamas are "fluf
dried" and charged for by the
"Laundry bills of people who
use the special system often are
50 per cent lower than they would
ordinarily be," Dalitz said.
