Our washroom has one of the first electric washers that were able to be purchased. The Laun-Dry-Ette allowed for the wife to be more efficient with her laundry. All she had to do was put her clothes in the tub along with and water and soap, and turn it on! The central tub held the clothes and when submerged in the water, the agitators on top, would agitate and clean the clothes. After the clothes were cleaned, the woman could push the pedal and lift the tub out of the water. Because the tub has holes in it, water can escape making it so the woman wouldn’t have to put her hand into the scalding water. From here, she could take the clothes to finish drying on the clothesline outside.
