The matter of laundry may seem perfectly simple when you see the great basket of clothing going to the weekly wash, however, if you will ask a few questions you will probably find that certain garments require special treatment. The process of laundering ordinary cotton material is perhaps the most simple. Cotton will stand almost any amount of hot water and soap. It is not damaged by boiling soap suds, in fact the boiling of white clothes has been a standard process for many years in home laundering.
