My 14 year old son is going to sleep away camp for the second half. His luggage is being picked up Monday evening (10 Av) at 6:00pm. Would it be possible to start doing his laundry before chatzos so that it is ready in time for the luggage pick up?
A person that is traveling and needs to do laundry, may do so even before chatzos. The reason is because not doing laundry until chatzos is technically permitted, however the minhag is to wait, however when it can’t wait it is permitted.
