Abstract (en)

Dry-mark garments were believed to be unwashable in a water laundering device in which laundering is done with washing water to which are added detergents and processing agents. A device is provided in which such garments can be laundered. The water laundering device is provided with a flexible partitioning plate 3 having many open holes in an inner drum 1 provided in an outer drum 4. It has a control unit for storing washing water in which detergents and processing agents are added, to less than half of the volume of the outer drum 4, and for rotating the garments put in the inner drum such that the rotational speed of the inner drum is at a low speed of one-over-several of normal speed to wash them while giving shrinkage and swelling to the garments by repeating the step in which the partitioning plate 3 is in a horizontal state and the step in which it has been half-turned. <IMAGE>
