    Default DH got me a wringer!

    He went to an auction for something he wanted and got 2 wooden wringers for $25!

    Now, all I need is a laundry sink...

    These go in the pile o' stuff for the next phase of the kitchen redo....

    When we get the new kitchen done I intend to have a laundry sink. I'll get DH to install it on one side of the sink so I can get water from wet clothes without using the dryer or an extra spin.

    He'll use it to help get his bike duds dry. (Now he washes 'em by hand then runs them thru the spin cycle in the washer.)

    Makes sense to me, would love to see a picture of your kitchen when you've got it all installed! Mahalo!!

    Good for you!!! We saw an old wringer washer sitting in someone's front yard Saturday and I thought, lucky them...

    I use a mop bucket with a mop wringer on it and also have a Wonder Wash (portable non-electric washing machine - http://www.laundry-alternative.com/washing.htm). This is my emergency set-up for doing laundry. For everyone who has washed laundry in a bucket or bath tub, hand wringing is a real chore.

    Be sure to be careful of those buttons and zippers going through the wringer. I remember my mother muttering under her breath if she snapped a button off. She also fed the clothes into the wringer with the handle of a wooden spoon, not her fingers.

    Nice job hubby. I remember my mom doing clothes with a wringer. It was lots of work back then. She had to fill coal buckets with water from the hand pump(no indoor plumbing), then take inside to fill the coal tubs one for washing and one for rinsing. Then she would use the wringer to get the water out, then hang dry clothes. It's funny the things that were done back then are now coming back into our lives. They were done out of necessity then and they are being done now as a way to save and be self sufficient. I think we will soon see them as necessities.
