The Claw (left) and his henchman Bobo hold Max and 99 prisoner at the Claw's laundry in San Francisco.

Favored base of operations for Chinese agents on both sides.

Chinese laundries are used as fronts by KAOS agents The Claw [Episode #25: "The Amazing Harry Hoo"] and The Whip [Episode #138: "I Am Curiously Yellow"] and by CONTROL cryptologist Lum Fong [Episode #93: "A Tale of Two Tails"].

Interestingly, the Claw and Lum Fong also both use the device of a code which will look like laundry marks inside the collar of a shirt in order to smuggle information.
