It's interesting to see that some of the thinking behind these was actually solid - the consistency of the temperature indicators, for example - despite the fact that in general they're notoriously poorly designed. "If you move this tiny line to a different edge of the circle, it means something completely different!" Yeah, genius, I mean, the connections between southwest and a short cycle, and northeast and no steam... so intuitive and not at all arbitrary!

Didn't you know? If you just jumble wet fabrics into a ball and toss them in circles they get real dry, and it only takes several hours.
