My husband was not amused and it is the only time he wore the same uniform two days running. We currently have reasonable stock levels of most products, however a number of our team, quite rightly, are self-isolating, which leaves just two of us in separate rooms packing your parcels. Underwear was certainly washed frequently, but thick top clothes tended have to last with just dirty spots being sponged off. Thank you so much for reading the hub, and for taking the time to leave a comment I appreciate both very much. When it was dry she would then iron his uniform she did this everyday. Washing that had particularly grubby areas like socks or the collars and cuffs of shirts etc would first be treated to some intensive hand washing. Also access to their attic was via a hatch in the ceiling and a pull down ladder.

Monday washdays: the weekly laundry in bygone years

Its adjustable squeeze rollers allow it to wring out thin clothing articles as well as the more difficult items to get dry such as jeans and other uneven or thicker items with buttons, zippers and snaps. Mum had been to the Bendix and she had put a load of washing into the machine and set it going. It was during the monsoon season and I had a real job getting it dry. At last - breakfast It was while the whites were boiling and the coloureds were being soaked that my gave us breakfast. Most towns and cities had a bylaw that would not let people burn garbage on a Monday.

We never did find out who took them and my mum never left her washing unattended again. The baths for rinsing were oval ones, commonly known as 'tin baths'. This buttons would pass safely through the rollers of a mangle. I was 4 years old but I remember the change to modernization. Even though it was very hard work, it must have been kind of fun to get together like that and have company for the chore. Monday was our washday as well. If they were not passed on when your parents were done with them I remember that the wheels off of these coach built prams were highly prized for use on the wooden trolleys that kids used to build.

I am glad that this hub brought back some of your own happy memories. This kept the water in the dolly tub cleaner for longer. Small items were wrung out but most things had to be put through the mangle again. My goodness but they sure got everything clean, and, I believe, used much less water than some the new-fangled beasts of the 60s. Mum liked the Bendix that was until one day when everything changed.

That I think would be more than enough for anyone to be called on to do but on top of that she also managed to pull in paid work. It took the better of half the day or more. A woman catching her man oiling a squeaky screen door was a very suspicious woman indeed. This can be adjusted depending on the type of clothes or items being dried and the amount of water that you desire to be squeezed from them. Then they were dried around the stove. Loved it thoroughly and you are never a disappointment! The water heating used to make terrible growling noises sometimes, and then he would turn some mysterious thermostat down, and it would stop growling. I have metal pants stretchers and jeans appear pressed after drying on the line with these stretchers.

This could potentially reduce dust approximately 10 to 60 times however this is not confirmed. There was no time for much else, particularly. When mum was satisfied that the soap had been removed from the clothes they would then be mangled again until all the water that could be squeezed out was squeezed out. During the week we kept the dolly tub in the pantry until we needed it. Originally my mum did her washing in a dolly tub. He had died years before of stomach cancer, which may have been brought on from being shot in the gut by Granny with his own policeman's revolver. Many a younger child in the family inherited the favourite jumper of an elder sibling this way.

Wash woollen clothing in water too hot and you would be left with a matted miniature of your original. Our house was an end of terrace house. I would do the wash, in the machine while I filled a wash tub style sink with water, then run the clothes from the washer through the ringer into the wash tub sink to wrinse, then back through the ringer once or twice then hang them on the clothes line. I found this video made in the 1940s that looks into the future to show how wash day would go in the future. On Monday morning mum would take the dolly tub from the pantry into the scullery. What a relief when we had the ascot water heater put in the scullery over the sink and the brick copper taken out. Apart from the food on washday which I loved, I hated wash days especially in the wintertime.
