Subject:  Shaving and laundering on Chol Hamoed
Message:  Reply:        "only if you shaved before Chol Hamoed" Reb Moshe Feinstein

If I remember correctly, Rav Moshe only mattirs it if you normally shave everyday, not just if you happened to have shaved before yom Tov

    
Reply: People who shave, normally shave. It is haircuts and trims that would be a problem to do on Chol Hamoed, since the Rabbis wanted them to be done prior to the Holiday.

Using that logic, why isn't laundering during Chol Hamoed and the nine days permitted on the grounds that nowadays we change our clothing at least once a day and the rabbis didn't intend for us to be THAT menuval during that week and a half.
   
Reply:  You can buy new clothing. Then you will not be a menuval.
