Thumbnail Image of Download Select Consumer Bulletin Articles - August 1961
Consumer Bulletin magazine was a product rating company that was started in 1928. The following artciles have been published in this download:

#1 Rating of Combination Washer/Dryers. Review of Easy Combomatics, General Electric, Kenmore, Norge Dispensomat, Philco-Bendix Duomatic, RCA Whirlpool Ultimatics, Wards Signature, Speed Queen and Westinghouse brand combos.

#2 Coin-Operated Dry Cleaners in Laundromats. ANYONE who regularly takes clothing or other articles to the dry cleaner knows that the expenditure for cleaning of this kind accounts for a sizable proportion of the household budget. It does not take many items to run up a bill of $5 to $10 for each lot of clothing, blankets, and other cleanable articles. Most families don't have everything cleaned they would like to or as often as they would like to. Many will thus welcome a new dry-cleaning service which gives special economy through self-service features, a type of installation also known as "coin-op" or self-service dry cleaning

#3 Review of the Corning Ware Electric Coffee Pot

#4 New Controls on Cooking Appliances
There are probably millions of oven clock-timers on both electric and gas ranges which are unused solely because they are too complicated to be set correctly by persons who do not use them regularly, and are unwilling to master the relationships of a complex set of dials, knobs, and pointers. Fortunately, some of the manufacturers have now done something about this situation.
