Many homemakers look upon washing as drudgery. The family, reacting to this attitude, and to the conditions which produce it, have come to dislike wash day. What are the things which make wash day unpleasant? Disorder of house and person; interference with personal activities; poorly planned and served meals; excessive heat, moisture and odors; fatigue and self-pity.
