CHAPTER I
THE PROBLEM AND ITS SCOPE
Introduction

The Filipinos are keen when it comes to cleanliness. Almost every day households do particular routines of cleaning up in order to avoid diseases brought by dirt. Most housewives do the chores at home including washing of laundry. Due to becoming preoccupied with work and home chores, washing of clothes become a burden to many. The resort is to utilize laundry services for a fast and easy way of cleaning dirty clothes and linens. Laundry chore was first done in water courses, letting the water carry away the materials which could cause stains and smells. Laundry is still done this way in some less industrialized areas and rural regions of the world. Agitation helps remove the dirt, so the laundry is often rubbed, twisted, or slapped against flat rocks. Wooden bats or clubs could be used to help with beating the dirt out. These were often called washing beetles or bats and could be used by the waterside on a rock (a beetling-stone), on a block (battling-block), or on a board. They were once common across Europe and were also used by settlers in North America. Similar techniques have also been identified in Japan. When no watercourses were available, laundry was done in water-tight vats or vessels. Sometimes large metal cauldrons were filled with fresh water and heated over a fire; boiling water was even more effective than cold in removing dirt. Wooden or stone scrubbing surfaces set up near a water supply or portable washboards, including factory-made corrugated metal ones, gradually replaced rocks as a surface for loosening soil. Once clean, the clothes were wrung out — twisted to remove most of the water. Then they were hung up on poles or clotheslines to air dry, or sometimes just spread out on clean grass. With the technological advancements of laundry machines (commonly called washing machines), the laundry chores has become a convenience in every household.

The resort is to utilize laundry services for a fast and easy way of cleaning dirty clothes and linens. Particularly in Tanjay City, Negros Oriental, the “City of Professionals” as it is dubbed local folks, people used to wash clothes every weekend after a weeklong of work. Instead of using weekend as leisure and family bonding time, members of the family wash their dirty clothes as part of their routines and keenness to have a clean house. The laundry business is one of the growing trends in the retail industry today. Theoretical Background
