Go a few steps further and streamline the laundry, loo. II pays. In too many million of homes the laundry consists mainly of an automatic washing machine. True', some housewives have taken the back-break out of washday by lining up a gas clothes dryer next io Ihe washer. The proper layout of the laundry — even in a minimum space — has a greai deal io do with getting the most out of modern equipment. So when looking over Ihe space at hand for remodeling , purposes, it is best Io bear in mind ihai. the ideal home laundry should ' be divided into four work centers: 1. Preparation center: Basic equipment here •should in- . elude a sorting table, mend- i»g basket, soaking sink., and bleaches. . 2. Washing center: Be sure ihai ihis is near a.sourcfe of plenty of hoi water. Wash • tubs, washing machine, soaps and' detergents, bluing and siarch are essential. 3. Drying center: The avi- tomatic gas clothes dryer eliminates ihe need for outdoor and indoor drying space, 'damp-dries clothes in 15 min- . uies and takes only a , half hour. f io fluff-dry towels. i 4. Ironing center; Plan this 'area so ihai you can be seated while ironing and eliminate much fatigue. Iron, ironing board and sprinkler are basic needs, while an automatic ironer saves time and labor.
