Wow you really can buy anything on Amazon! We have no washer or a place for one yet in the house, and I had been lugging hampers to the other house, but I was using the dryer more than I ever had so it would be done by the time I was going back. So i was washing undies and socks and TShirts in the sink with Fels Naptha shredded, wringing them by hand and hanging on the wardrobe shelving that we installed behind our wood cookstove or hanging on the wooden folding drying rack. But i was rubbing the clothes with my knuckles and I thought what a nice thing a washboard would be. So I found one on amazon.com for $14...it about 2' X 15" or so, and I used it last night. i love my $14 Old Timey Washing Machine! I washed everything except a sweatshirt and the blue jeans, because I have a hard time wringing those out by hand. Dh said i should do those too and don't worry if they are a little drippy because this house needs the humidity!! So maybe tonight I'll try jeans. All that wringing by hand does make my arms a little achey but i am sure i'll get used to it.
i dissolve soap in one basin of the kitchen sink with hot water, the pour cold rinse water in the second basin. soap up the clothing and rub on the washboard, then dip in the rinse water and swish.....take them out and squeeze as much as possible, shake them out and hang them up and by morning they are dry!
