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
