It is that time of year again when we reflect on the past 12 months and hope for better next year, writes editor Kathy Bowry. It has been tough for many but with a new year on the horizon maybe, just maybe we will turn the corner. Whatever 2024 brings, you can rest assured that LCNi will be doing its best to make things run smoothly for the textile care industry. Have a look at what we have planned...
Laundry and Cleaning News is the leading publication for the textile care industry with news, comment and textile care masterclasses, product and technical features and articles about legislation, and business management. And more.
It covers all sectors of the industry, laundry, textile rental healthcare laundering, drycleaning, OPL and launderette sectors. Our regular What Went Wrong section is a must for drycleaners. It includes case studies as well as hints and tips on how to handle certain garment categories and avoid problems. Material Solutions is the go-to technical resource for linen rental laundries and other large laundries.
Laundry and Cleaning News publishes International (LCNi) and UK (LCN) editions appearing in alternate months. In addition, we produce special issues for international exhibitions and the big one in 2024 is Texcare International in Frankfurt in November.
