Textile test methods : dimensional change in domestic laundering of textiles.: P29-4-4-2-58-2019E-PDF

"This new edition of CAN/CGSB-4.2 No. 58 is a significant departure from previous versions in that it no longer specifies the use of a domestic washing machine. As washing machines continue to evolve, so must the equipment parameters specified in laundering standards. Given the rate at which washing machines have been changing, it is nearly impossible to specify equipment parameters that will remain relevant for long. It has become challenging for testing laboratories to consistently source washing machines that meet specific machineparameters. This standard now specifies the use of a standardized washing machine intended for laboratory use"--Introduction, page ii.
