Laundry on Chol haMoed


When a small stain occurs on a garment, one may clean it on chol hamoed; this is not the type of cleaning forbidden on chol hamoed.

One should not give a garment to someone else to clean, even if that person is not a professional. However, one may do so within a spousal, parental or teacher-student relationship, if the cleaning will not be done professionally.

[Rav Moshe does not explicitly limit this to cleaning for use on chol hamoed or yom tov, but it seems reasonable to assume that this is the case.]

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 5:36:1)

Have a great day,
