Try an image (google) search for “BDM-Haushaltungsschulen” and see what comes up.

For what it's worth, my recently-deceased mother-in-law attended a Haushaltungsschule in Wuppertal (from 1936 on I think). She said that amongst other things the girls were taught how to hang washing out. If, or example, a towel or sheet were hung on the line, the teacher would check that the two edges of the object on either side of the line were perfectly parallel. If they weren't, the washing was torn down and the unfortunate girl/girls had to re-hang it. I suspect this would have been a feature of German schooling in general, rather than necessarily a BDM one.

I tend to agree. That's how my Grandma Freida ran her household, and her family emigrated before the First World War.
