My grandmother had one of these, you could actually sit down while you used it. She kept hers on a closed in back porch
great place to iron when it is 20 degrees below zero. Something else that I remember is the sprinkling of dried laundry before you ironed it. Once a week, the refrigerator had rolled up dampened clothes to be ironed. You sprinkle it the night before and ironed the next morning. Something else I remember is that the women at the Methodist church had decorated bottles to put your water in and add a sprinkle top. Once the ladies from the Baptist church discovered that they were made from beer bottles, the gossip swirled in our small town. Many ladies in many churches took second
looks at what they were offering at their fall sales.
