Response to Arkansas Granny (Original post)

Sat Jan 11, 2020, 03:48 AM

44. Yes. Mom and dad had on on the back porch and I helped mom.....

run clothes through and hang them on our clotheslines. This was mostly in the 50s and stretching my memory, but I believe I got a hand caught in it once but mom hit the wringer release real fast and stopped it. There were many horror stories about ladies getting hair caught in those things.

Those machines actually were a luxury to many folks in our little farm town so many just used a washboard in a tub.

KY...........

Edit: I recall they were hard on buttons and some zippers if not ran through with care.
