A number of years ago we purchased a washboard (actually we have several). It’s something we’ll be able to use to help clean the clothes if the power goes out for an extended time.
It’s a simple tool – made with a wooden frame that holds a metal scrub board lined with ridges which help to loosen the dirt while washing clothes against it.
I don’t know if any of you have ever used a washboard or if you have one in your supplies, but it’s a device that our ancestors used before advent of the washing machine.
