Back In the Day. Do You Remember?



When mum did the washing on Mondays
Spin driers had not yet arose
Wringers, type hand/automatic
Were used to squeeze water from clothes

  1. Don’t see most of your audience old enough to remember. I AM old enough. Remember the hand crank “wringers” which were great, but when they put power to them, watch out! Powered wringers so much easier, but until the pressure clutch realized your fingers were in the bite of denim, you’d get so much more than a manicure. Rocks on the banks of the river or a tub and a washboard I don’t remember but the old round tub/wringers I sure do. Great flashback.
