The Quickwash Plus machine manufactured by Raitech Inc., Charlotte, N.C. is a tabletop unit that washes and dries a variety of sample fabrics much faster than traditional methods.Debbie Blanton, senior operator, said, What used to take 14 hours, we now have gotten down to 15 minutes. We can do process checks while production is going, so it really eliminates quality problems. Blanton said the lab plans to expand use of the unit to include colorfastness testing. August 2002
