Sanitary Laundering (Classic Reprint)

Tudor C. Josselyn


Excerpt from Sanitary Laundering

The object in writing these few pages has been twofold; first, to awaken in the consciousness of those who may read them a realization of the dangers in which they are daily living in their liability of contracting some one of the many forms of disease that may be brought to their homes from some laundry; and second, to put into simple and easy language a means of knowing how to best treat and clean all kinds of washable fabrics, and if possible, to offer a better method for doing laundry work by actual measurements of all chemical substances that are used and that too, without injury to the clothing while being put through the wash.

The criterion by which the purity of clothing has been judged, and is judged, is that of Whiteness, never realizing that from within that bundle of whiteness may be hidden the seeds of disease, sickness and death.

Visiting more than a thousand homes it was found that ignorance was the key to the real situation in regard to the possibility of a laundry being a disease breeding and disease lurking place; and, nowhere was responsibility to be laid, therefore the necessity of each individual home becoming a law unto itself and thereby change their method of laundry procedure from that which now prevails.

The information herein contained, in many instances, was furnished to the author by housewives, who had done some thinking, and is here given as the result of their experience, while other matter is the result of observation, experiment and study.
