    You are so right about this, as I remembered us kids had to carry the water from a spring(about a block away) on wash day. She had an old Maytag with a motor my father had attached and there was a wringer too. She heated the water on a bottle gas stove, then carried it out to the wash shed. Then started washing whites, pastel colors, medium colors, going on until she got to blue jeans, dark pants or dark material cloths. Thanks for reminding me, as I had forgotten this.

    I used to line dry my sheets, before DH developed allergies.
    Cut poem. I remember my Mom freeze drying our clothes and we would bring them in to thaw.

    I remember all of these things! Also, don't forget the coke bottle with the sprinkler head - sprinkle the clothes, roll them up tight in the basket, and iron, iron, iron. I was thinking this morning when I was ironing a blouse for work and wondered if any of my grandchilren (or children!) know the correct way to iron a shirt.

    I remember. I still like to hang clothes,, especially sheets and linens, outside to dry in nice weather. Love the smell of the sheets. Saves money too.

    I still hang my sheets and pillow sheets on my retrackable clothes line. There's nothing that compares to crawling into clean sheets that have been line dried. The smell is something that you never will forget.
