How To Buy Launderable Fabrics
Doing the Weekly Washing and Ironing

Washing and Ironing Delicate Fabrics
Washing Automatically in the Westinghouse Laundromat

No longer will you need to put aside one day each week, to tire yourself out doing a whopping big wash. Come "V Day" ... the hard work of clothes washing will be done for you ... automatically ... in the new Westinghouse Laundromat. The Laundromat is that revolutionary new Westinghouse contribution to better living. It reduces clothes washing to three simple steps-"put 'em in-set the dials-take 'em out" . For the Laundromat is automatic.-it fills itself with water, washes, rinses, spins the clothes amazingly dry and shuts itself off.
