BATON ROUGE, La., (KNOE 8 News) - In a move that shocked half the planet this month Hasbro announced they would be replacing the iron game piece in their popular Monopoly game.

"Replacing the iron is exactly what dry cleaning and laundry services do," said Mary Scalco. Scalco is CEO of the Dry cleaning and Laundry Institute, a trade association for professional dry cleaners and launderers.

"We were overjoyed to learn there would soon be one less iron in millions of homes around the world, even if it is a miniature replica game piece," Scalco said. "Way to go, Hasbro!"
