Chol ha Mo’ed Laundry

Rabbi Elchanan Lewis10 Shevat 5766
1450
Question
I understand the Halacha on doing or not doing Laundry on Chol Ha Mo’ed, but are you alowed to outsorce it to Non-Jews. I know you can not give your laundry for someone to wash on friday afternoon, with the fear of them doing it on Shabat at your request, but is that the same for the Chol Ha Mo’ed?
Answer
Laundering on Chol Hamoed is prohibited even through a non-Jew. (Shmirat Shabbat Kehilchata B p.371)
