My mother did the same MR.-boil handkerchieves, then washing machine. I was in charge of the wringer. We had a system where we could be doing to washing, and swilling /rinsing out the soap at the same time via the "ringer" and a sink behind the washer. Whites first! After 2 rinses we would put that on the line in the garden in good weather and start again with the next load. My Father when he was alive put the system in and I just carried on after he died. The other thing I did as a child was collect the manure from the delivery horses-milk, bread and coal-separate deliveries of course. Using the muck to grow plants for sale and sell some of the manure off to other users!

I am a tissue user. I didn't realise there was a potential issue with them-head in the sand, case I am afraid.

We never had a system like that, but I helped Mum sometimes with the wringer which was used on the back porch which had 2 open sides. No washing machine at that time. Once Mum got a twin tub, it was easier as the second tub did the spinning and rinsing, so drier clothes to go out on the line.
